Devotion for Friday, September 29, 2023
“And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly” (Revelation 17:6).
Our sin is the wine of the demons. We give them what they desire every time we wallow in the death of sin. Our entertainment sells it. Our companies merchandise with it. Our books, stories, and education is filled with it. The garbage is everywhere. We breath it, eat it, see it and we often act as if unaware of the situation. Cry out to the Lord and let Him strip you of the garbage in order to be cleansed.
Lord, I cry out to You amidst all the garbage of this world. You have come, lifted me up, and what I see, when I am lifted up, is You. You give me a new life. You give me a clean life. You remind me what I was made for and Who’s I am. I no longer need to eat, breathe, nor live the life of garbage. I can live a life that is holy and dedicated to becoming like You. Lead me in the hope of this promise, Lord Jesus.
You died, Jesus, so that I could be redeemed from the pit of death. You have called and I have heard Your voice. You have lifted me up and given me a new life. Guide me in the way You would have me go. Lead me according to Your purposes to become more like You each day that I live in this age. Let me know today and every day that I am Yours. Teach me to love You as You love me. Amen.
