Devotion for Sunday, April 22, 2018

“I have considered the days of old, the years of long ago. I will remember my song in the night; I will meditate with my heart, and my spirit ponders:” (Psalm 77:5-6)

Do you take time to reflect on the life the Lord has given you? As the years go by, the character of who we are is shaped and, if we are honest, we see many places where the hand of the Lord has been there to keep us on the path we are on. Does your spirit ponder? Do you meditate on the Lord’s guidance in your life? Do you truly look to the Lord at all times, knowing He is there?

Lord, the world is so busy that I often forget to take time to ponder and meditate. Guide me, O Lord, that I may see Your guidance and know that You have always been there alongside me. Lead me to know Your presence that I may learn to praise You always for the good that You do and the hope You have given. Slow down the noise in my ears and increase Your Word in my heart.

Lord Jesus, You know all of the frailties that get in the way of our lives and how easily we are distracted. Guide me now and always to walk humbly with You knowing that only in You is there hope and a future. Let me see more clearly each day the many ways in which You have been there that I may see more and more Your promises fulfilled and that the world lies to me. Amen
