“Show me Your ways, O Lord,
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth
and teach me,
For You are the God
of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.”
Psalm 25:4-5 (NKJV)
When I read these verses I picture in my mind a person who wants to know God and trust God… a person who really needs the Lord. When I add Psalm 25:1 “To you, O Lord, I lift my soul”, I think that David was having a very personal time with his Lord.
Does your heart drive you to search out special times with the Lord?
I have a friend that I have known for over 30 years. When I talk with her, no matter what day it is, she has been with Jesus. She has felt His presence. The Holy Spirit ministers to her through His presence and His Word. Most of the time, she seeks the Lord just to fellowship. Sometimes there may be a special need involved. She desires to be close with the Lord, like David did.
David recorded his fellowship with the Lord. Sometimes it was a very personal reading. Other times it was praise or thanksgiving.
I would like you to develop time for the Lord. Maybe in a place where you meet with Him. May I suggest having your Bible and something to write with, with you? Try writing down, keeping a journal of your devotion time with the Lord.
As our time of social distancing continues, most of us should have more time to give to the Lord!
I believe it is what we do when no one else is looking that is most important and contributes to who we are and what we are.
If we utilize this time as the Lord directs us, I like to imagine that our sanctuary will be full of people who are full, very full, of Jesus.
This time could turn out to be a gift from God for us.
How about it?
Can you see yourself calm in the Lord’s presence?
Can you see yourself at rest and satisfied in the Lord’s presence?
I will leave you with a verse:
Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
“But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.”
