Weekly Devotional 

September 25 – October 1

Hold Fast To What Is Good

Scripture: “I delight to do your will, O my God your law is within my heart.”– Psalm 40:8

Devotional: Inwardly, for us as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, there is a daily war being raged between our minds and our free will.  No wonder the Apostle reminds us in Romans chapter 7:15:  “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.”  Certainly, I believe that it is the desire of all Christians to love God and give their best in service, especially in their hearts and minds but among us and always, there is this present age of evil all around us.  So what do we do?  We hold on and cling to God through our Worship to Him as we read His Word along with our Witness of Him to those around us!

Prayer: Thank you Lord for your abiding presence even when we do fall short of your glory and help us to trust You and not merely what we can see, feel, and touch.  We thank you for filling us with your Grace and Mercy and allowing us today to experience your power through the Holy Spirit to navigate through this day we pray, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
