“Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties, whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord” (2 Peter 2:10b-11).

There are those who are bold in the wicked deeds of the flesh.  They think they are clever, but they reveal where their heart is through their deeds.  Don’t be enticed and led astray by such as these.    Instead, turn your eyes to the Lord and know that He has given you the words of eternal life.  Do not revile the things of the Lord, but rebuke the deeds of the wicked who lead others astray.

Lord, grant me wisdom and understanding so that I may be led by the truth of Your word.  Help me now and always to see that only in you is there hope.  You are the author of life and You know how it should be lived.  Guide me away from the temptations of the flesh so that I may walk humbly with You, my Savior, saying and doing that which is pleasing in the Father’s sight.

Heavenly Father, You have sent Your Son to enable all who believe to walk in His power and become like Him.  Guide me in the way of Christ in order that I may look to You through Him and avoid the wickedness of this age.  Lead me this day to not worry about tomorrow, for You alone know what is coming.  Help me always to look to You, seeking to do what is pleasing in Your sight.  Keep Your Spirit dwelling richly within me.  Amen.
