“My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, for You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.” (Psalm 63:5-7)
How much time do you spend with the Lord? The Psalm reminds us to think on the Lord day and night, when we are waking and ready to sleep. The Lord is a constant companion, ready and willing to walk with us at all times. Be in relationship with the Lord, for this is the call of salvation and the hope of all who believe. Know that the Lord is good and there and waiting.
Lord, I say with my lips one thing and then get busy with another. Help me, I pray, to see in You the hope of glory that shines throughout the ages. Guide me according to Your purposes that I would meditate upon You day and night and know the goodness You impart to those who walk with You. Lead me, O Lord, that I may walk with You throughout the day and all the days of my life.
Jesus, You have come to model the godly life. You told us to pray without ceasing. Help me learn from You how to do this that I may truly walk with You all the day long. Guide the thoughts of my mind, the meditation of my heart and the path I take throughout the day. Lead me, O Lord, that I may follow You, my Lord and my Savior. Lead my mouth to be full of Your praise all the day long. Amen.
