“I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait, and in His word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than the watchmen for the morning; indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.” (Psalm 130:5-6)
Where is your hope? Do you hope in the things of this world? Are you distracted with all of the offerings around you? When all is stripped away, where is your hope? People learn those things that interest them. Does the Lord interest you? Do you spend time in the Lord’s Word? Do you meditate upon His ways? Do you spend time in prayer with Him. Wait upon the Lord humbly and He will lift you up.
Lord, help me to see the many places where I am distracted by the cares and worries of this world. Help me to not be guided by them, but by You alone. Lift me up into Your countenance that I may learn from You by, and in the provision You have given me, through Your Word. Help me to fall in love with Your Word and with You that I may watch for You more than anything else.
Lord Jesus, You are the Word made flesh. You have come to lead the way for all those who will follow. Guide me Lord Jesus in the way You know I need to go. Help me to not be hindered by the cares of this world, but to walk with You as You lead. Teach me to be watchful and to anticipate the ways in which You will lead. Show me the way to follow You all of my days and in all of my ways. Amen.
