“Now we pray to God that you do no wrong; not that we ourselves may appear approved, but that you may do what is right, even though we may appear unapproved. For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth” (2 Corinthians 13:7-8).
The direction of the heart will determine the footsteps you take. This is not to say you won’t sin. In one sense, that does not matter. If your heart is under the management of Christ then He will lead you to live life in a different way than you would have if you had remained under your own management. Come then and live into the life to which you have been called and dwell richly in the Lord.
Lord, You have given me a new heart that knows You must lead the way. Amidst the trials and tribulations of this life, guide me, Lord, that I may dwell with You as You dwell with me. Help me to understanding more fully the truth You have revealed, and live not seeking after this world’s way of doing things, but in accordance with Your Word and the Father’s will.
Lord Jesus, You know all that I need. You have promised to dwell with me and invite me to dwell with You. You also know where I am hindered and do not heed all that You have commanded. Guide me, Lord, that I may grow in obedience and actually live out a disciplined life as You teach me how to live. Abide with me, Lord, that from You I may learn how to live life. Amen.
