“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”  The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold.”  (Psalm 46:10-11)

How often do we try to figure things out and then determine whether or not we want to agree that it is true.  God is the Sovereign of the universe.  Of course we do not know what He knows.  He gives us His testimony and then we react to it.  In this age of supposed knowledge, know that the Lord’s ways are not our ways.  Learn to live by faith, trusting in the Lord and the witness He has given.

Lord, I am programmed by this world to question everything, yet I do not question the fundamental things, but accept them by faith.  Help me, I pray, to discern between what is programmed and what is true that I may cling to the truth of Your Word.  You are the stronghold of every generation.  Help me to cling to what is right, true and fitting forever.  Guide me in Your ways, O Lord.

Lord Jesus, Word made flesh, help me see the truth You have revealed that I may walk in truth.  Remove from me the striving that gets in the way that the energy I expend may be for truth.  Lead me, O Lord, that I may follow where You lead knowing that You have given the words of eternal life.  Help me now and always to see in You the hope of glory and learn as You teach.  Amen.
