“You have spurned the covenant of Your servant; You have profaned his crown in the dust. You have broken down all his walls; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.” (Psalm 89:39-40)


Worldly things will pass away and those things which man builds will return to dust. Come then into the presence of the One who is forever. Do not rely upon your understanding or the way you perceive things, but listen to the One who created all things. Know that the goodness of the Lord is forever. Seek the Lord while He may be found and walk in humility with the One who made you.

Lord, I live in a mixed up world that seeks its own ideas and believes that it can create something that will last. Help me begin now to see that only in You is there hope and a future. Lead me to live into the promises You have given me that I would walk humbly with You and follow You in all of Your ways. Keep me from the deception of this age, knowing that only in You is there true life.

You have come to save as many as believe that we would walk in Your ways, Lord Jesus. Guide me this day in the way of salvation. Uphold me in the righteousness You have called me to walk in that I may now and always hold fast to the truth You have revealed. Keep me from harm and help me to be faithful in all I do this day that I would walk humbly in the Father’s sight. Amen.

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, how blessed is the man who trusts in You!” (Psalm 84:11-12)

The source of all things is the Lord through whom all things have been made. He is the light shining in the darkness. Through the One who created all things we have our life and our being. Come into His presence and dwell securely in Him. Know that He is the One through whom you have your being and in Him alone is your peace. How blessed you are if you dwell with the Lord.

Lord God, grant that I would hold fast to the truth You have revealed once for all. Guide me, O Lord, in the way I should go that I would forever walk in Your ways. Grant that I be as one blessed because I dwell in Your house. Guide me all the days of my life to walk in the light of Your countenance doing those things which are pleasing in Your sight, for You alone are God.

Lord Jesus, You have come that I may dwell in the light of Your presence and walk in the grace You have purchased. Lead me, O Lord, in Your way of truth that I would become as You have shown me. You have promised to be with me always and how blessed I am knowing that You are right beside me, ahead of me and leading the way. You are the Savior of the world and in You I trust. Amen.
