Devotion for Monday, January 23, 2023
“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen” (Jude 1:24-25).
Do you stumble? Why? Could it be that you are not resting wholly in the arms of Jesus. He is able to keep you from stumbling. And there is another thing to think about, and that is, the Lord uses everything for your good. Therefore, do you really stumble? All things are in the Lord’s hands, and He has promised to work everything together for your good. To Him who has already overcome be all glory, honor and majesty!
Lord, You have already conquered the things I wrestle against. You have asked me to follow you. Help me to follow through with what I need to do. Help me to lean wholly into Your arms. Lead me into a life that is blameless in Your sight. You know what it will take, and for my part, help me to trust You to lead me in the way I need to go. Guide me in a life of discipleship.
Lord Jesus, You are Lord and You have already done all that needs to be done. Guide me in the way I need to go today. Guide my steps so that I mature in this faith You have given me. Lead me according to Your purpose. Keep me from acting according to my own self-will but help me follow You in all things. Lead me according to the purpose of the Father and for His glory. Amen.
