Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Do not trust in human helpers, in a mortal man who cannot save you. His spirit departs. He returns to the ground he came from. On that day, his plans have perished. Blessed is everyone who has the God of Jacob as his help. His hope is in the Lord his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything which is in them. He is the one who stays faithful forever. (Psalm 146:3-6 EHV)
Hymn ELH 261:1,3 Who Trusts in God, a Strong Abode
Who trusts in God, a strong abode
In heaven and earth possesses;
Who looks in love To Christ above,
No fear his heart oppresses.
In Thee alone, dear Lord, we own
Sweet hope and consolation,
Our Shield from foes, our Balm for woes,
Our great and sure Salvation.
In all the strife of mortal life
Our feet will stand securely;
Temptation’s hour shall lose its power,
For Thou shalt guard us surely.
O God, renew with heavenly dew
Our body, soul, and spirit
Until we stand at Thy right hand
Through Jesus’ saving merit.
Heavenly Father, help me always to trust in You above all things. You are my help and my salvation. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
