“In Your name they rejoice all the day, and by Your righteousness they are exalted.  For You are the glory of their strength, and by Your favor our horn is exalted.”  (Psalm 89:16-17)

Do you call upon the name of the Lord?  Do you think of all the goodness He has lavished upon you?  The Lord has created all things and yes, the wicked roam the earth, but all are blessed because the Lord provides for all.  Lift up the name of the Lord and rejoice in His goodness and mercy.  Show others your thankfulness by serving them as the Lord has served you.  In Him is all goodness.

Lord, continue to strengthen my heart to rejoice in the goodness of Your mercy and grace.  Guide me in the way I should go and let Your presence in my life be evident.  Help me in every time of need to see Your purpose for my life and to live into that purpose.  Now and always, may there be praise of You upon my lips.  May I do what is pleasing in Your sight to accomplish Your will for me.

Lord, I need the guidance of Your Spirit to lead me throughout this day.  It is a mixed up world and things happen that cause me to be distracted.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way I should live this day that I would do what is pleasing in Your sight.  Help me now and always to be guided by Your grace and mercy and to do those things which are right in Your sight now and always.  Amen.
