“Deal bountifully with Your servant, that I may live and keep Your word. Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law. I am a stranger in the earth; do not hide Your commandments from me.” (Psalm 119:17-19)
If we live by faith, we know that this life is short and temporary. We are in the midst of being made new in the image of Christ. Live to keep the Word and you will become like Christ. This is so simple to see, if even hard to do. Trust in the Lord and He will open your eyes to see the truth of the revelation which has always been before you. We are all pilgrims and strangers upon this earth.
Lord, open my eyes to see more clearly the path upon which You have set me. Guide me according to Your commandments that I may abide in You as You abide in me. You are the Creator of all things and You know what You are doing. Keep me from trusting in myself that I would trust in You always. Lead me, O Lord, according to Your goodness that I may learn to abide in Your promises.
Lord Jesus, You have called us to join with You through the cross and prepare for the coming resurrection. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go that I would follow You step by step through this journey of faith. Guide me to live according to the never-changing word which has been declared that I may now and forever live into the promise of salvation which You have made possible. Amen.
