“The Lord God has opened My ear; and I was not disobedient nor did I turn back. I gave My back to those who strike Me, and My cheeks to those who pluck out the beard; I did not cover My face from humiliation and spitting.” (Isaiah 50:5-6)
“If you deny Me before men, I will deny you before My Father in heaven,” Jesus said. To whom will you give your loyalty and devotion? Will it be yourself? Will it be someone or something in this world? This is an important question that directs to focus and direction of life. Listen to the Word of the Lord, hear what He has to say and incline your ear to the One who created all things.
Lord, I am tossed and turned in this crazy world of ongoing nonsense. Help me to look to You, the author and finisher of all things knowing that only in You is there a true future that is forever. Guide me in Your paths for Your name’s sake that I would walk in the right way and live according to Your Word, for You alone are the One who is able to do these things. May I hear and rightly respond to Your eternal Word.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead as many as would heed Your Word and follow You throughout this life in preparation for eternal life. Guide me, I pray, to see that in You alone is there hope and a future. Guide me this day to do those things which are correct in the Father’s eyes and in accordance with Your eternal and never-changing Word. May I learn from You how to be faithful. Amen.
