“After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation, glory, and power belong to our God” (Revelation 19:1)
The last song of this age belongs to the Lord. After all the wickedness is done, it will be clear that the glory of the Lord is greater. The wicked may last for a season, but the Lord is forever. Do not fall into the traps of the wicked in this age. Be guided by the goodness and mercy of the Lord. You are invited to be one of the multitude who will shout praises to the Lord and the truth that He overcomes all wickedness.
Lord, I see it and yet, I fall for it too often. Something wicked tantalizes me and I fall into temptation. My own resolutions fail. My own attempts at doing things right end up only partially done. I want to be with You and walk in Your ways. I want to be a part of the multitude, but then fall I down and need to start over again. Help me, Lord, so that I can continue to run the race of salvation.
Lord, in Your mercy and grace, I need all the help You give me. When I am about to stumble, hold on tight so that I do not fall. When my mouth could praise You, but is afraid in this world, give me strength to praise You. When I am lured by the wickedness of this world, let my eyes see things as they really are. Lead me into Your goodness, Lord Jesus, and help me by Your grace each step of the way. Amen.
