Devotion for Friday, September 28, 2018
“The sea is His, for it was He who made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” (Psalm 95:5-6)
The Lord is the Maker of all things. In His hands are the caverns of the deep and the dry land is His. All that is has come forth from His hands. To whom else are we to compare anything when all things came into being through Him? Come then, bow down and worship the Lord, for He is Your maker and the One through whom you have your being. He is worthy of all honor and praise and in Him is life.
Lord, Help me to understand more clearly that all things of this world are only things which You have made. Everything is in You and apart from You is nothing. Guide me, O Lord, according to Your goodness to walk in Your counsel. Lead me in the way of righteousness that You have established. Guide me to walk humbly with You, my Maker, that I may live according to Your will.
Holy Spirit, come and minister to my heart that I may walk in the peace that You give amidst the hostility of this world. Lead me in the right way of living that I may now and always walk in the way You have established from the beginning. Help me this day to see in You the hope that only You can give and live upright amidst a world filled with tribulation. Guide me now and always. Amen.
