Friday, December 8, 2017 Devotion

“That Your beloved may be delivered, save with Your right hand, and answer us!  God has spoken in His holiness: “I will exult, I will portion out Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth.  “Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the helmet of My head; Judah is My scepter.”  (Psalm 60:5-7)

The Lord has spoken once for all.  In Him is the forgiveness, mercy and kindness to deliver.  Trust in the Lord and all His goodness.  We have been created to praise, thank and worship the Lord Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.  Everything belongs to the Lord.  We do well to walk in His ways, know the truth of the ages and rejoice in all that He is doing.  He is mighty and will deliver.

Lord, Your goodness comes anew each day, yet all around are those who seek destruction.  Guide me through the wilderness of this world to see in You the hope of glory and glimpses of what You are creating.  Lead me into Your salvation that I may walk as righteously as possible in this life, preparing for the life to come.  Lead me, O Lord, now and forever in Your goodness.

Savior, for that is the name You have been given Yeshua, Jesus.  You are the Savior who delivers as many as believe out of the captivity of this world and into the glorious presence of the Father.  Lead me through the hills and valleys of this world to simply walk with You all the days of my life.  Let me be a witness of Your presence to all around me that they too may see and believe.  Amen.

“Behold, I would wander far away, I would lodge in the wilderness.  “I would hasten to my place of refuge from the stormy wind and tempest.”  (Psalm 55:7-8)


Lord, the times and seasons are in Your hands.  You have set all things in their course.  You allow what You allow and You hinder things of which we do not know.  You have given the promise that all things will work for glory for those who love You.  Lead Your people through every tempest that we all would learn to trust in Your goodness above all things and walk in Your ways.


If it were up to me, I would flee to the hills, hide and never return.  It would do nothing and accomplish stagnation.  Keep me close to You Lord that whatever may come and no matter the circumstances, I may forever hold fast to the truth of Your Word.  Lead me O Lord that I may walk in Your ways all the days of my life knowing that You alone are Sovereign in all the earth.


Lord Jesus, You have come that we may have life and have it abundantly.  It is not a life free from the troubles of this world, but a life led by You through all the troubles of this world.  Help me now and always to hold fast to the truth You have revealed and to face every storm You lead me to face.  Guide me now and always to walk in Your ways and by Your example.  Amen.
