“The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts. I have inherited Your testimonies forever, for they are the joy of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, even to the end.” (Psalm 119:110-112)
What the Lord has given is for all. Anyone may walk in the ways of the Lord and there are many who are doing what is right and are unaware that it is the law of the Lord. Goodness is known by all, but the one who is wise will embrace goodness and walk in the Lord’s way. Let the statutes of the Lord be in your heart and upon your lips. Know goodness by practicing what is good.
Lord, I know certain things, but there are other things that I do not know. Guide my heart, O Lord, that I would focus upon the good and leave behind all that is evil. You know where I am and what I need. I need Your salvation and the guidance of Your Spirit. Lead me away from those places and practices where I am not in harmony with Your will that I may learn from You the goodness of life.
Lord Jesus, You have come that I may have life abundantly in You. Lead me out of those places where I am still in rebellion. Guide me into the goodness of the Father’s mercy to the place where I obey as You have obeyed. Teach me, O Lord, and help me to learn that I may grow in wisdom and understanding. You are my salvation and in Your everlasting arms I find rest. Lead me this day. Amen.
