Devotion for Wednesday, November 8, 2023

“Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.’” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God” (Revelation 19:9).

Do you treat the invitation you have been given in your baptism as a blessing?  Do you cherish what the Lord has done for You?  Blessed are they who have been invited and come to the wedding feast of the Lamb.  The Lord died so that you could come.  Do not underestimate the gift the Lord has purchased for you.  The whole of creation hinges on the simple truth that the Lord wants you to be with Him forever.

Lord, I do not understand the times and seasons.  There are so many things that go on around me that distract me.  Guide me, Lord, so that I live the life You have given me knowing that I have been given a great privilege by Your grace.  Lead me to understand these things so that my life is truly changed.  Hold me up to have the hope of eternity in my heart.

Lord Jesus, with Your own blood, You purchased for me a new life.  You have invited me to join You in the marriage feast.  Let my garments be radiantly white.  Let my attitude be one of praise and thanksgiving.  Lead me in all my ways this day to praise You Whose work alone endures forever.  Guide me, Jesus, in the way You know I need to go.  Empower me to take those steps needed to be a child of God. Amen.
