“O Lord our God, You answered them; You were a forgiving God to them, and yet an avenger of their evil deeds. Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy hill, for holy is the Lord our God.” (Psalm 99:8-9)

 The ways of the Lord are unchanging. Each generation seeks to do things the way they think they ought to be done, but only the way of the Lord, established in the beginning, is true and lasts forever. Come then into the Lord’s presence and walk according to His statutes and know His goodness. Walk humbly before your God and know that He is the One who is forever.

Lord, this world tempts me to walk in its ways. The ways of the world are not just. Lead me to practice the way You would have me go that I may learn the way of eternity. Help me through every temptation that would call me in another direction that I may now and always practice Your ways. Guide me to worship You alone and dwell upon Your holy hill now and forever.

Holy Spirit, work on my inward life that I may be guided by Your presence and purpose. Help me always to see that the Truth is the only way to live life. Regardless of the temptations that are around me, or the tugs to go in another direction, help me to live into the life to which I have been called. May I dwell in the light of truth all the days of my life and live in the eternal way. Amen.
