“And I heard the altar saying, “Yes, Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments” (Revelation 16:7).
True are the judgements of the Lord. The opposite is also true. Untrue are the judgements of this age. The Lord knows, and not only in our lifetime, the outcome of the string of events that are unleashed with judgement. We know there will be an end to this age. The question remains before us: “What kind of person ought you to be?” Indeed, what will I do knwing these things?
Lord, who knows whether the whole of creation was not put together for the sole purpose of giving us the opportunity of joining with You. Lead me in the right way. You are righteous and just. You have come to give life to those who would follow You. Help me to walk the path that You have set before me, seeking life first and leaving all other things in Your hands.
Lord, You know all that I need. You allow things to happen in my life so that I may be moved to where I need to be. Guide me in the way You know I need to go and help me to move there. Lead me, Lord, and help me to have a heart that willingly receives what You are giving me. In You Lord I have hope, for all things are in Your hands. Lead me according to Your goodness and mercy. Amen.
