“Then a strong angel picked up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will never be found again” (Revelation 18:21).
Have we not been told in the word of God that it would be better to have a millstone around our neck and be tossed into the sea than to cause one of the Lord’s little ones to stumble? How many, conforming to the thinking of this world, stumble, and lead others in stumbling? Think carefully, for the ways of the Lord are eternal and He is jealous of His righteousness. His righteousness will prevail against all the wiles of the wicked one.
Lord, open my eyes to see, my ears to hear, and my mind to understand what is before me. All these things have been true throughout the ages. People have not changed, nor will they. Things will not get better. This world is doomed, but it keeps promoting the lie that we are getting better. Lift up my countenance, Lord, to live according to the eternal principles You set in place in the beginning.
Lord, You have given me the words of eternal life. You have filled me with hope through faith, by Your grace. Lead me today and every day in the wonder of Your grace and mercy. According to Your loving kindness, help me simply and humbly to come to You and live as You have given me a new life to live. Lead me in the eternal way according to the words of eternal life that You have given me. Amen.
