When times are difficult, we may find ourselves saying:
“Give ear to my words, O Lord.”
“Give heed to my groaning.”
“Hearken to the sound of my cry, my King and my God.”
We cry out to God, presenting Him with our requests morning, noon and night. We have a problem and we want to be delivered. We can’t stop pleading. We are so much in need!
What would happen if we would change our perspective as the Psalmist did, saying:
“Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness . . . Make Thy way straight before me.”
He answers. His way becomes clear. He shows the way out, under, over, around or through. We follow Him! We rejoice!
But let all who take refuge in Thee rejoice, let them ever sing for joy; and do Thou defend them, that those who love Thy name may exult in Thee. For Thou dost bless the righteous, O Lord; Thou dost cover him with favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:11-12
Heavenly Father, please lead me in Thy righteousness. Please make Thy way straight before me. I trust Your guidance. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
