“I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, and have not let my enemies rejoice over me.  O Lord my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.”  (Psalm 30:1-2)

The world is a nasty place and there are those who love to hate.  There are those who are unthinking and uncaring.  The Lord loves and cares for the whole of His creation and those who listen to the Lord know Him.  Look to the Lord and be healed.  Look to the Lord and know the One who has you in His hands.  Look to the Lord and live life as He has created it to be lived.

Lord, let me not live as one who seeks what others are demanding.  Let me not be influenced by those who are far away from You.  Guide me according to Your purpose that I may abide in You as You abide in me.  Lead me to rejoicing in You, for by Your grace I am healed.  Lead me, O Lord, according to Your Word which is forever that I may this day more fully see the revelation of Your purpose and presence.

Lord Jesus, Word made flesh, who has come to dwell among us.  Guide me in the Father’s will this day that I may rejoice in Your healing.  Lead me according to the purpose which shall be fulfilled around me this day.  Help me keep my eyes upon You and away from all my enemies.  Let them not rejoice in their wickedness, but see Your goodness and turn to You, the author of life.  Amen.
