O Lord, I remember Your name in the night, and keep Your law. This has
become mine, that I observe Your precepts.” (Psalm 119:55-56)

The way of salvation is grace. Grace
enables all who come into it to begin the real work of learning the way of
righteousness. This is why Scripture tells us to work through our salvation
with fear and trembling. Yet, never forget that it is the Lord’s grace alone
that enables us to walk this journey. Come then into the salvation the Lord
offers and know His goodness forever.

You have called for us to learn faithfulness. You have called for us to
put into practice those things that You command. Through Your precepts and the
obedience of all that You command teach me the way of becoming like Christ. Let
it be true that I say that Your precepts are my precepts. Lead me in the way of
righteousness that I would forever hold fast to the truth of Your Word.

Lord Jesus, You have invited me
to walk with You. Guide me this day in those lessons I need to learn that I
would now and always walk in the way You would have me go. Let me see the
hindrances that I may learn to be bold in faith against the obstacles of this
age. Keep me close to You that I may grow this day in Your likeness and be
closer to what You are creating in me. Amen.
