Devotion for Saturday, September 15, 2018
“The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice, the floods lift up their pounding waves. More than the sounds of many waters, than the mighty breakers of the sea, the Lord on high is mighty. Your testimonies are fully confirmed; holiness befits Your house, O Lord, forevermore.” (Psalm 93:3-5)
Who can move the heavens and the earth? Who is able to set the earth in its course and bring up from the deep those things that shake and move continents? The Lord, who created all things, is mighty. But greater still, He has provided salvation for those who come to Him in faith. He calls all who believe to come into holiness and walk before Him in the righteousness He gives.
Lord, I am not righteous and unworthy of Your presence. Yet, You have provided the way by which all who come to You may know Your goodness and mercy. Lead me in the way You have established that I may now and always walk in the way of the upright. Set my heart on a new course that I would learn from You the way of righteousness. May I lean not on my own understanding, but upon You.
Savior, You have come that we might be set free from sin, death and the devil. Guide me, O Lord, to walk according to the Father’s will. Break my heart of rebellion and give me Your heart of obedience and willing submission. Lead me all the days of this life that I may prepare for the eternal life You have promised through Your grace. Guide me, Lord Jesus, now and always. Amen.
