Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness! May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor!” (Psalm 72:3-4)

The world has always been filled with those who take and oppress. They do these things and twist words to proclaim that it is good. The Lord gives to all freely and takes care of the orphan and widow. The wicked look at the exception and say God is not good. They lift up that exception to say they are good. See through the lies in this world to perceive how the Lord does provide for all every day.

Lord open my eyes to see through all of the garbage that gets thrown around to see clearly that this world that You have made provides for us all. The wicked one perverts truth and people run amok with lies; but guide me into truth that I would see through the lies and humbly share with others what You have given to me. You are the eternal prosperity for all. Lead me into You.

Lord Jesus, You came humbly into the world to show goodness and mercy and to make possible the eternal salvation for all. You healed the sick, bound up the broken hearted and raised the dead. Let me see and rejoice in the provision You give that I may fill my days with praise and thanksgiving. Lead me, Lord Jesus, into the new life You have given me to help others as You have helped me. Amen.
