As followers of Christ we have the opportunity and privilege to have the Lord lead us. Maybe lately some of you haven’t been sensing or desiring His leading. Maybe to some it hasn’t been a blessed thought. I encourage each of us to take some time reading through the verses from the Psalms below and then really listening to the lyrics in the hymn/songs when you’re done. I’d personally never heard the song Spirit Lead Me before, but it is a good one. Hope you enjoy your quiet time alone with the Lord and come away from it with the renewed mindset of “O blessed thought…A Faithful Follower I will be! as you allow Him to lead you from here on out.”
Self-examination question…What area(s) of your life are you not allowing the Lord to lead you in? Work? Family? Lifestyle choices? Purchases? Finances? Spiritual growth? Physical wellbeing? Confess, repent, and act accordingly. Trust me…He desires to be your Shepherd and lead you each and every day. Will you allow Him to do so?
Practicing His Presence,
If you’re stuck and don’t know how to pray this morning…then these Psalms also make for amazing prayer guides. Just because David / the Psalmist used them doesn’t mean that you can’t. Give them a try and see what happens. Surely the Spirit will bring something to surface that you can deal with.
