Devotion for Monday, August 6, 2018
“I have found David My servant; with My holy oil I have anointed him, with whom My hand will be established; my arm also will strengthen him.” (Psalm 89:20-21)
The Lord has appointed those whom He will use for His service. It is as the Lord determines. Do not fret over the appointments of the Lord, but walk humbly in His ways and be glad that He has given You His word. Live into the hope of your salvation knowing that the Lord has accomplished it. The Lord is merciful and kind, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Lord, lead me through the troubles that each day brings. Guide me according to Your goodness to see the hope of glory that You give. You will appoint whom You will appoint to positions of leadership. Guide me in the way You would have me go and grant that I be content in whatever circumstance You grant me to live. You are God and there is no other. In You alone is there hope.
My God and my Savior, guide me to walk humbly with You this day knowing that all things are in Your hands. Help me now and always to see in You the hope of glory You have provided through the grace and mercy that You purchased by Your blood shed for me. Lead me to do those things which are pleasing in Your sight. May I be faithful this day, being guided in Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
