“Hear my prayer, O Lord! And let my cry for help come to You. Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my distress; incline Your ear to me; in the day when I call answer me quickly.” (Psalm 102:1-2)
There are times when it seems that you are all alone. Life is not going as you imagine it should be. But the Lord is not hiding His face. Have you ever thought that maybe you were the one hiding from Him? Know that you are always in the Lord’s presence. Acknowledge Him and know His goodness. Yes, you will have days that will not be what you imagine, but the Lord is with you every step of the way.
Lord, open my eyes to see that You have called me to walk with You at all times. Keep me from being so distracted that I do not see You. Like a child in a crowd who looks the other way, I sometimes lose sight of You. Keep my attention on You and what You are doing that I may live into the life to which You have called me. May I learn from You and see You clearly always.
Lord Jesus, abide in me and teach me to abide in You. Guide me in the way You have established that I may walk today and every day knowing that You are with me and will never leave nor forsake me. Guide me as You know I need to be led. Help me to never let go of Your hand knowing that only You can lead me, a child of God, through the wilderness of this age. Amen.
