“I will sing of lovingkindness and justice, to You, O Lord, I will sing praises. I will give heed to the blameless way. When will You come to me?” (Psalm 101:1-2)
Do you walk as one who is in repentance, knowing that the way of the Lord is righteous and true? Do you seek to do things the way the Lord would have you do them? Are you comfortable in the sight of the Lord knowing that His necessary grace is as much a part of your life as breathing itself? Do you walk alongside the Lord knowing He is walking alongside you?
Lord, You and I know that I am a sinner, but also that You have provided the needed grace so that I may go to work in my life of faith. Guide me to take seriously this life You have given me that I may now and always walk as one who is under Your guidance. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go and help me overcome those obstacles that hinder my walking humbly with You.
Lord Jesus, You have come to pave the way for the faithful to walk in the way of righteousness. Lead me, O Lord, in the way I need to go that I may listen as You direct and be guided by the eternal principles that You have commanded. May I learn from You to be humble, faithful and live in the repentance You require. May my life be increasing in the righteousness You give. Amen.
