Devotion for Monday, May 22, 2023

“And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand” (Revelation 8:4).

It is the Lord who deals with us.  Think about that.  We have great leaders who are supposed to care for the people.  Which of them personally takes care of each person?  The Lord watches over your going out and coming in.  The Lord knows you.  Come to the Lord and walk humbly with your Maker.  Be guided by what He says.  Pay attention and become one who, in the obedience of faith, does as the Lord asks.

Father in Heaven, help me to be a person of action.  Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You there is hope and a future.  You have spoken the Word and through You all things have their being.  You care for each one of us.  Lead me, Lord, in the way You intend life to be lived.  Keep me in Your goodness to heed all that You say and to learn from You how then shall I livehu.  You have said that I will become more like Christ.  Thank You for helping me by Your grace to do so.

Lod Jesus, I want to become more like You today.  I do not know where to begin other than with the prayer You taught us.  Throughout the day, as You see the need, remind me of things I can do to increasingly become like You.  Guide me in thought, word, and deed to be consistent in action, thoughtful in prayer, and humble in attitude.  You know what I need.  Thank You for providing all the grace that I need.  Amen.
