“They were told not to hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree, but only the men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads” (Revelation 9:4).

How many have been devoured by this world and its troubles?  We’re not talking about nature, but about being spiritually ravaged by evil.  Be wary of the news.  Be wary of the deceivers.  Be wary because the world wants you in hell.  Look to the Lord and the salvation He gives.  He has given you hope and a promise.  Live in the grace you have been given and do not be destroyed by the evils around us.

Lord, You have marked me with Your cross and sealed my redemption by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Help me now and always to live the new life You give and reject the old Adam.  Help me to be one of Your own redeeming and not one of those who will be devoured by this world.  You have marked me, now keep me from yielding in every time of trouble so that I may be found in You.

Dear Lord and Savior Jesus, You know what is coming and what the times are.  You have given me ample warning for every time of struggle.  Guide me in the way of life which I need to live in order that I would hold fast to Your goodness above all else.  Lead me day by day to reject the wickedness of this world and to live according to Your never-failing promises.  May I always remain in You and You in me.  Amen.
