Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Unless I was confident to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living— Wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart, and wait for the Lord! (Psalm 27:13-14 EHV)
Hymn ELH 354:6,7 Like the Golden Sun Ascending
Satan’s arrows all lie broken
Death and hell have met their doom;
Christ, Thy rising is the token:
Thou hast triumphed o’er the tomb.
Thou hast buried all my woe,
And my cup doth overflow;
By Thy resurrection glorious
I shall wave my palms victorious.
As the Son of God I know Thee,
For I see Thy sovereign power;
Sin and death shall not overthrow me
Even in my dying hour;
For Thy resurrection is
Surety for my heavenly bliss,
And my baptism a reflection
Of Thy death and resurrection.
Heavenly Father, through Your Son’s resurrection, You guarantee my own resurrection from the dead and the fulfillment of Jesus’ promise to prepare a place for me in Heaven. Forgive me all my sins and strengthen my faith to trust in Your promises. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
