Devotion for Sunday, April 8, 2018

“Arise, O God, and plead Your own cause; remember how the foolish man reproaches You all day long. Do not forget the voice of Your adversaries, the uproar of those who rise against You which ascends continually.” (Psalm 74:22-23)

The cause of the Lord is the whole of Scripture itself which speaks of His salvation in Christ. Oh how the foolish ignore what is given that they may continue in the futility of their minds to imagine a creation they cannot create. Come to the Word of the Lord and hear of the creation He has made and what shall come about for those who love Him and know His mercy and grace.

Lord, I have fallen prey to those who speak ill words of You and seek to lead people astray. Though You have presented Your case and made the necessary atonement for those who believe; yet there are many who go in their own direction and do not believe what You have said. Guide me, O Lord, in Your purpose that I would forever hold fast to the truth You have already spoken.

Lord Jesus, the final answer for this age, You have called me in the goodness of the Father to walk with You in faith. Guide me now and always to share what You have given amidst the pretenses of the foolish who reject the truth You speak. Lead me now and always to look to You, the author and finisher of my faith, that I may remain faithful and hold to the truth of all ages. Amen.
