Devotion for Monday, March 12, 2018

For he delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper. He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.” (Psalm 72:12-13)

Lord You have always provided even when those who are given the responsibility to do so will not. Help me join in Your work and do those things which are pleasing to You. Help me look beyond the struggles of this age, knowing they are always present, to see the truth that Your ways shall prevail. Lead us, O Lord, in the way of righteousness and peace to take care of our neighbors.

Lord, You know the struggles I have, for I judge others and do not simply do what You ask me to do. Help me now and always to see the truth and walk humbly in Your ways doing what You give me to do. Lead me in righteousness so that I simply do what You place before me and am not hindered by the thoughts in my mind which may get in the way. Lead me in the way of peace.

Lord Jesus, You demonstrated godliness by living a sinless life and taking care of those whom You met each day. By Your example, guide me to do the same. Help me be about Your business and leave all judgements to You. Help me to be both shrewd and innocent in my daily dealings as I live the life to which You have called me. May I this day follow in Your footsteps as You lead. Amen.
