Let me hear Your loving-kindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Whether it was seeking refuge from His enemies, in deep repentance for His transgressions or to worship and glorify God, the foundation upon which the prayer and praises of David rested, was the righteousness, faithfulness and goodness of God.

David learned many things about the Lord in his life-time and one important lesson was that no matter how dark the night of doubt and sorrow, how mountainous the problems he had to face or how fierce the enemy that stalked our path, God is our help and strength and He is our shield and buckler – the Lord is our Shepherd and He is the shelter from the storm – for the loving-kindness of the Lord never fails and the grace and mercy of our heavenly Father gives unlimited supply.

Like David we must trust in our Father and never doubt His loving-kindness, which is new every morning – and like David we should cry out to the Father to  teach us the way in which we should walk, for God is the lifter up of our souls.

But how can God teach us His ways so that we walk in His ways? Well God has laid out His plan and purposes for us in His Word and the Bible should be the immovable foundation upon which our trust in God is founded. He clearly lays out the path that we are to follow and we should read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the word of God with an undivided heart.. so that in the power of the Holy Spirit we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus – for this is the will of God in each of our lives, that we should know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father I pray that I may know more of Jesus so that I may understand Your way and Your will for my life – for I know that in Christ will I be enabled to walk in the way that You would have me go, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
