“But it is you, a man my equal, my companion and my familiar friend; we who had sweet fellowship together walked in the house of God in the throng.” (Psalm 55:13-14)
You never truly know what is in the heart of the other. Though they may seem your friend, if they follow the way of the world, they tug and pull to lead you astray. Do not be fearful, but diligent to walk in the ways of the Lord and see how easily we all can be led astray. The Lord deals with each as He has made them and calls for us to look to Him in all things.
Lord, all around me are a mix of people who are thinking all kinds of things. Guide my mind and heart to see You through the cacophony of things that are all around me. Lead me along the quiet waters of Your Word to be comforted by the truth You have spoken from the beginning. Let the fellowship I enjoy be that of Your people singing praises to You, the One true God.
Lord Jesus, You have come to clear the way for as many as would follow You through the constant noise of this world. Guide me according to the wisdom of the Spirit that I would hear Your voice above all the noise around me. Hold me fast in Your arms of grace to walk boldly and firmly in the way of truth that You have established in Your teaching and guide me to walk the narrow path. Amen.
