Devotion for Sunday, September 9, 2018

“A senseless man has no knowledge, nor does a stupid man understand this: that when the wicked sprouted up like grass and all who did iniquity flourished, it was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.” (Psalm 92:6-7)


The way of a man shows his heart. The wicked will do what they need to do to serve themselves. Those who lean on the Lord seek what is good and right in every circumstance. It may seem for a while that the wicked flourish, but they do not. They walk in the way of condemnation. Come into the way of the Lord and learn to live life as the Lord meant for it to be lived.

Lord, You offer wisdom and understanding. My heart tugs and desires the things of this world. My mind knows that all of this will be left behind at the end of this life and yet I still struggle to have what I do not have. Save me from this conflicted heart and guide me along paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Lift me up out of the mess of this world that I would live for You.

Savior, You have come to save us from ourselves and the mess of this world. Guide me in the way I should go and help me to learn how to live in this world without being a part of it. Help me today to see through the temptations that tug at me that I may live into the eternal life You grant through grace. Guide me, Lord Jesus, to walk in Your way now and forever. Amen.
