“[A]nd did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly” (2 Peter 2:5)
Lord, I sometimes wonder when I see all the wickedness in the world why You continue to let it run its course. Help me to see that there is also much beauty around me and that Your salvation reaches whom it reaches. Guide me in the way of true life so that I simply look to You for all things. Guide me in Your goodness to the way of living which is true and eternal.
Lord, You know where I fall short. You know where I have seen and done things that are not true to You or to what You have said in Scripture. Correct me, Lord, so that I may repent and come into harmony with You. In the end, You will blot out the wickedness of this world. It must be so if heaven is to remain perfect. Help me to see and act upon these things so that goodness prevails in me and is reflected to others.
Lord Jesus, You are the way of everlasting life. You have established what is right and true. You are the ark upon which we can safely float to flee the flood of wickedness in this age. In You is the hope for every generation. Lord, help me to stay in the safety of Your provision and not try to do these things on my own. Guide me now and forever, and help me to willingly live in Your provision. Amen.
