“With which Your enemies have reproached, O Lord, with which they have reproached the footsteps of Your anointed. Blessed be the Lord forever! Amen and Amen.” (Psalm 89:51-52)
The enemies of the Lord look at the havoc they have brought upon others and then say to the Lord’s people, “Where is your God?” The Lord alone endures forever and the wicked have a small amount of time to plot their schemes. Trust in the One who is forever and look to the One who blesses. The Lord in His goodness has shown the way for the righteous to walk upright.
It is a confusing world Lord and there are many paths that may be followed. Yet, there is only one that is right and true. Lead me along the paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake that I may now and always walk humbly with You, my Lord and God. No matter what may come, help me hold on to You, for You are my strength and hope. May I learn to bless Your name.
Lord Jesus, You know adversity and yet You gave grace and mercy. Through Your example, help me also to live giving grace and mercy that I may live into the life to which You have called me. Thank You for what You have done. Thank You for including me in the call You give to live into the salvation You have prepared for those who will learn to love as You love. Amen.
