Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes .... Soon the wicked will disappear. Though you look for them, they will be gone .... The wicked plot against the godly; they snarl at them in defiance. But the Lord just laughs, for he sees their day of judgment coming .... For the Lord loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will die .... The wicked wait in ambush for the godly, looking for an excuse to kill them. But the Lord will not let the wicked succeed or let the godly be condemned when they are put on trial. Put your hope in the Lord. Travel steadily along his path. He will honor you by giving you the land. You will see the wicked destroyed .... Look at those who are honest and good, for a wonderful future awaits those who love peace. But the rebellious will be destroyed; they have no future. The Lord rescues the godly; he is their fortress in times of trouble. The Lord helps them, rescuing them from the wicked. He saves them, and they find shelter in him. Psalm 37:7, 10, 12-13, 28, 32-34, 37-40

Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:1-6

Once again I think it would be good to conclude this week’s devotional series with an assignment we have used in the past. Put together a brief commentary of your own that captures the truth of what you have personally gleaned from this week's devotionals. And then write out your own prayer response to God that expresses to him the work he is doing in your heart and life at this time. God Bless, Ken Hart
