Devotion for Friday, November 17, 2017
“Your vows are binding upon me, O God; I will render thank offerings to You. For You have delivered my soul from death, indeed my feet from stumbling, so that I may walk before God in the light of the living.” (Psalm 56:12-13)
In this world of mixed up ideas, the Lord makes promises that only He is able to keep. Who gives life? Who can raise the dead? Whose ability holds all things together? It is the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Trust in the Lord with all of your might and let Him make up for any weakness that you have. He will deliver your soul so that You can walk with Him forever.
Lord, I become confused by all of the promises, words and persuasions bantered about in this world. Guide me through the morass of this world to stand before You covered in the righteousness You alone give. Bring my heart to the place where I render thanksgiving for all of Your goodness and know that in You there is hope and a future. Lead me, O Lord, for You alone know what is needed.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way for as many as would come by grace through faith, trusting that You have given the words of eternal life. Lead me this day to see in You the hope of glory and the firmness of the promises You have delivered. Teach me how to praise and worship, knowing that only in You is there hope and a future. Keep me from stumbling so I may walk with You now and always. Amen.
