Day 9: Rule of Scripture
Send out your light and your truth;
let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy hill
and to your dwelling!
God promises to direct our paths through His Word. He guides us into times of celebration, and His Word becomes our song. He walks us through trials and pain, and His Word serves as our comfort. When we face danger, His Word is our protection. When we encounter seasons of confusion, His Word is our certainty. When we are tempted to despair and to turn to our own way, He reminds us that His Word leads us home.
- How has the Word of God provided direction for some of your key decisions in life?
- How does God’s promise of leading us home shape the way you encounter difficult times?
- What will you do today to demonstrate a greater reliance upon God’s Word for direction?
Lord, thank you for leading me, even when it’s in a direction that I would not choose for myself. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who brings your Word to mind and teaches me to apply it properly. Please give me wisdom to follow you and redeem the opportunities that you have given to me. For Christ’s sake, Amen.
