FATHER’S INSTRUCTION

[Proverbs 4:1-4]

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Tonight

I pray that you will listen to your father’s instruction. May you pay attention to what he teaches you so you will gain understanding. Lay hold of His words in your heart that you may live life to the fullest. I pray that you will remember the wisdom He passes on to you, so that in times of need you may draw from it. May God bless you with wisdom as you heed your father’s instructions today.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

KEEP HIS WAYS

[Psalm 18:21-27]

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

I pray that you will always keep the ways of the Lord and never turn away from them. May you follow all His laws that He has laid out before you. I pray that you will resist sin. I claim the Lord’s reward for you according to your righteousness. May you remain faithful and blameless, as He is faithful and blameless. I pray that you will be humble, for He brings low those whose eyes are haughty. May God give you the grace to keep His ways.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Evening Devotional

Complete Safety

Of Benjamin he said: The beloved of the Lord will live safely by him; he protects him all the time, and the Lord places him on his chest.

[Deut 33:12]

Yes, there is no safety like that which comes of dwelling near to God. For His best beloved the Lord can find no surer or safer place. O Lord, let me always abide under Thy shadow, close to Thy wounded side. Nearer and nearer would I come to Thee, my Lord; and when once specially near Thee, I would abide there forever.

What a covering is that which the Lord gives to His chosen! Not a fair roof shall cover him, nor a bomb-proof casement, nor even an angel’s wing, but Jehovah Himself. Nothing can come at us when we are thus covered. This covering the Lord will grant us all the day long, however long the day. Lord, let me abide this day consciously beneath this canopy of love, this pavilion of sovereign power.

Does the third clause mean that the Lord in His temple would dwell among the mountains of Benjamin or that the Lord would be where Benjamin’s burden should be placed, or does it mean that we are borne upon the shoulders of the Eternal? In any case, the Lord is the support and strength of His saints. Lord, let me ever enjoy Thy help, and then my arms will be sufficient for me.
