Devotion for Sunday, November 12, 2017
“Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled upon me; fighting all day long he oppresses me. My foes have trampled upon me all day long, for they are many who fight proudly against me. When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.” (Psalm 56:1-3)
The noise of this world is constant. We hear many things, of which many are not good. So many opinions strike us that we become confused and do not know what to believe. Clear the way for my mind, O Lord, to see Your goodness and walk in Your ways. Guide me according to Your goodness to walk in Your ways, and listen to and obey the sweet music of Your Word
Lord, You know what is needed and at just the right time You have come to save those who would turn to You. Lead me in the way I should go that I would go that way. Come into my heart and renew it to be a heart after Your own. In Your goodness, guide me according to Your will to simply trust in Your leading and do what it is that You give me to do. Help me, Mighty Savior.
“My Lord and my God”, is what Thomas said of You, Lord Jesus. Until the final action for this sinner, let me see that bowing to You will help me discern that You have saved all that come to You for grace. Guide me in the goodness You bring that I would walk in Your ways. Strip away my pretensions and lift me up according to the Father’s will to walk all the days of my life with You alone. Amen.
