Devotion for Tuesday, July 11, 2023
“Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever” (Revelation 11:15)
Come quickly, Lord Jesus! The day will come when the nightmare of this age will be over. The Lord Jesus will step forward and His reign shall go on forever. But we are not there now. We must contend with this wicked world and the ongoing battles that rage around us. Each has their part. Each of us has been called to be faithful to the One who redeemed us with His shed blood on the cross.
Lord, you know the difference between what kind of person I will be when Your forever-reign begins and the kind of person I am now. Lead me toward what I will be in You. Keep me from wandering around this world without a goal, for You have set one before me. Lead me the way I need to go and help me to get there. I may not know all that is needed, but You do.
King Jesus, You have taken time for one such as me. You have redeemed me and called me to walk humbly with You. Guide me, Lord Jesus, in the way of life I need to live and help me to walk step by step with You. You, Lord, are my hope. You hold my future. In You, Lord, is life. Guide me in all Your ways and do not let me rest until I am with You in Your eternal kingdom. Amen.
