Short Evening Devotion for October 29, 2020
Proverbs 18:9 (NKJV)
He who is slothful in his work
Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.
Prayer for the Day Ahead
Who can tell what tomorrow might bring? Therefore, gracious God, cause me to live every day as if it were to be my last, for I cannot know that it is not. Help me to live, this evening and tomorrow, as I shall wish I had done when I come to die.
Exodus 4:27-31 (ESV)
Moses Returns to Egypt
he Lord said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” So he went and met him at the mountain of God and kissed him. And Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord with which he had sent him to speak, and all the signs that he had commanded him to do.
Then Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the people of Israel. Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses and did the signs in the sight of the people.
And the people believed; and when they heard that the Lord had visited the people of Israel and that he had seen their affliction, they bowed their heads and worshiped.
Keep me, O Heavenly Father, from evil this night. Bring me in safety to the beginning of another day, and grant that I may rise again with every serious and religious feeling that now directs me.
