Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Whenever you fast, do not make yourself look sad like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces to show everyone that they are fasting. Amen I tell you: They have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that it is not apparent to people that you are fasting, but only to your Father who sees what is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. “Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Because where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:16-21 EHV)
Hymn ELH 252:1,5 I Walk in Danger All the Way
I walk in danger all the way;
The thought shall never leave me
That Satan, who has marked his prey,
Is plotting to deceive me.
This foe with hidden snares
May seize me unawares
If ever I fail to watch and pray;
I walk in danger all the way.
I walk with Jesus all the way;
His guidance never fails me.
Within His wounds I find a stay
When Satan’s power assails me,
And, by His footsteps led,
My path I safely tread.
In spite of ills that threaten may,
I walk with Jesus all the way.
Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the true treasures of the Gospel, forgiveness and salvation. Help me always to see these as the most important things in my life. In the name of my Savior, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
