Are you looking for your “true north”? Do you wish you could find that solid foundation where you could build your life, and stand firm through all kinds of trouble and tribulation? Do you yearn for a guide — a coach and mentor — who can teach you the true difference between right and wrong?
Maybe you need love. You want faithful love. Solid love. Enduring love. Eternal love.
Or perhaps you seek forgiveness and mercy? You want just a small dose of grace instead of judgment in your life. There’s a lot of “history” in your life, a boat load of baggage. You long to grasp a sense of hope and peace, but it all just seems wispy, even as you reach for it.
Look no further. You’ve just found what you’re looking for…
“He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he” (Deuteronomy 32:4, NIV).
“Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness… For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end” (Psalm 48:9-10, 14, NIV).
Our Bible reading for Monday, April 20, is Deuteronomy 31:30 – 32:52, Luke 19:45 – 20:26 and Psalm 48:9-14.
Lord Jesus, be my true north, my compass and my guide. Lead me in your gentle love through this life. Give me a sense of peace and certainty in the midst of a very shaky world. Thank you, Jesus, for offering yourself on the cross to be my Savior, and my guide even to the end.
