Psalm 1:6 “For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,”
[You, Lord, the infinite and eternal One, are abundantly able to actively attend to all the needs of your children, whom you have made righteous in Christ. You are consistently, powerfully, intimately involved in protecting, providing, and carrying us forward in this life. You lead us beside still waters.
As we walk in the way of the righteous, you give us multiple opportunities every day to fulfill the purpose of our lives in offering thanks in every situation—especially the ones we don’t like—and thereby honor you before all the unseen hosts as well as humans. You are our Good and Gracious Shepherd.
Every day we get to see your hand at work in our lives as you guide us along the way. You provide God sightings every day so that we can know your love that surpasses knowledge, experiencing your grace. Open our eyes to see all the good you continually shower out on us.
“but the way of the wicked will perish.”
[The way of the wicked spirals downward into ever increasing darkness, for they have rejected the light-giving Grace and Mercy you offer. O Lord, you want to watch over the way of everyone, but sadly not all will enter your path.
Praise you, Lord Jesus, that you came as Savior first, and that you will come again as Judge to end wickedness, sin, evil, suffering, pain, sickness and death. You will usher in the New Heaven and the New Earth with all their beauty and sinless glory.
Help us to live in the light of the great future you have in store for us.
