Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Indeed, whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that, through patient endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures, we would have hope. And may God, the source of patient endurance and encouragement, grant that you agree with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that with one mind, in one voice, you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:4-6 EHV)
Hymn ELH 549:1,4 O God, Our Lord, Your Holy Word
O God, our Lord, Your holy Word
Was long a hidden treasure
Till to its place It was by grace
Restored in fullest measure.
For this today Our thanks we say
And gladly glorify You.
Your mercy show And grace bestow
On all who still deny You.
You are my Lord, And by Your Word
Death holds no dreadful terrors;
Your precious blood, My highest good,
Has blotted out my errors.
My thanks to You! Your Word is true,
You keep Your promise ever.
While here I live, Your grace You give
And heav’nly bliss forever.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of Your Word, which gives me encouragement and hope. Forgive me my sins and give me strength and endurance to believe and follow Your Word. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
