The Path of Life
“I keep the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved…. You show me the path of life. In Your Presence there is the fullness of joy; in Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:8-11).
With the eyes of my heart set upon You and the ears of my spirit open toward You, I am steady and secure, deeply at peace and full of joy. Here in this holy place of Your Presence in the communion of prayer, You ground me in Your Word and fill me with Your Spirit. This is the path of life You’ve shown me.
And You’ve taught me to start down this path every day. It’s wise – and maybe even necessary – to first spend the first moments of my morning in the deliberate and deep place of abiding in Your Presence. Seeking Your face, listening for Your voice, watching and waiting for Your leading, worshipping You in Spirit and truth, resting in the embrace and confidence of Your tender mercies and steadfast love before anything else is my way of offering to You the first fruits of my day. And then in the power of Your grace, You help me keep You always before me throughout the moments of my day.
This is a good path – the path that leads to life, abundant life in You. Thank You, Lord, for teaching me this path. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
