Next Day

The simple fact that you are taking time to read this devotion is an indication that you value turning your heart to God. It's not easy. There are so many distractions. So much noise. We are living in a world of gadgets and instant connectivity with people all over the globe. You are probably reading this on a phone, computer or iPad, aren't you?

I love spending time in the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota with high school youth groups. I'm heading there again in August. My phone stays behind. But when I'm home, finding time each day for some space for reflection is needed for that steadfast love and faithfulness to meet. How do you intentionally find the space to hear God?

Steadfast God, give us space to connect with you and lead us to be faithful to your word. Amen.

John Klawiter, '12
Pastor, Faith Lutheran Church, Forest Lake, Minn.

Psalm 85:8-13 (NRSV)

8 Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his faithful, to those who turn to him in their hearts.
9 Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky.
12 The Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
13 Righteousness will go before him, and will make a path for his steps.
