“Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight” (1 Peter 3:4).
A gentle and quiet spirit is what should prevail. How often are we tempted to be boisterous and noisy? That is just another way of saying, “Look at me.” Take the focus and put it upon the Lord and the things of the Lord. Be guided by His goodness and mercy. Know that in Him is all truth and that He has made you to be whom you are. He will also make you into whom you shall be.
Lord, I am Your creation. You say in Scripture that I am wonderfully made. Guide me, dear Lord, in the everlasting way of beautiful truth in order that I would learn to act as the person I am becoming. In all truth, may I radiate that truth in all that I say or do. You Lord, are the only One who can bring me from where I am to where I need to be. Guide me on the path of salvation so that I go where You direct.
Lord Jesus, You have come to save me, set me free, and lead me in the upward way of salvation. Along the path You create for Your own purpose, guide me so that I would look to You and not myself. Let the beauty of what You are doing radiate through me always. In all things, guide me to do what is right and good in the Father’s sight. Lord, may I learn to always give You free reign in my life. Amen.
