“May those who fear You turn to me, even those who know Your testimonies. May my heart be blameless in Your statutes, so that I will not be ashamed.” (Psalm 119:79-80)
The Lord calls us to be lifted up that those around also know that we hear the Word of the Lord and obey all that He commands. It is not that we are lifted up in ourselves, but lifted up because of our righteousness in the Lord. Come then and know the goodness of the Lord and walk in His ways. Let Him lift up whom He will and follow and lead according to His purposes.
Lord, remove me from the equation so that I would do as You would have me do. You are Lord and You know the purposes for which You have created each one of us. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of righteousness that I would now and always walk according to Your Word of truth. May I never be ashamed for the goodness You have given me through Your eternal promises.
Lord Jesus, You have taught us how to walk blamelessly. Lead me this day that I would now and forever walk according to Your goodness. Help me through all of the obstacles that come my way. May I now and always be found in You, the author and source of my faith. Place me where You would have me and guide me throughout this day to do what is pleasing in the Father’s sight. Amen.
