He Directs My Steps.

“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, Your right hand upholds me, and Your gentleness makes me great. You enlarge my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped. Psalm 18:35-36

“Bless our God, O peoples, and sound His praise abroad who keeps us in life and does not allow our feet to slip.” Psalm 66:8-9

“I have directed you in the way of wisdom. I have led you in upright paths. When you walk, your steps will not be impeded and if you run, you will not stumble.” Proverb 4:11-12

Lord, I appreciate Your gentleness and morning mercies. When I seek wisdom, You direct every step of my goal-planning sessions. I love to plan with You. I know I will not fail if I’m in Your will. I’ve got to admit I tend to be rebellious at times and even prideful so forgive me when I am. I hope the Holy Spirit nudges me immediately so I may repent immediately and ask You to direct my ways. You always want the best for my life, and I appreciate Your divine appointments.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

In The Shadow of His Wings

“Keep me as the apple of the eye. Hide me in the shadow of Your wings” Psalm 17:8“

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.” Psalm 36:7

“Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in You. And in the shadow of Your wings, I will take refuge until destruction passes by. I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me.” Psalm 57:1-2

“He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings, you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.” Psalm 91:4

Lord be gracious and protect me from all the evil in the world. I take refuge under Your wings now so be my shield and refuge.

I am less anxious when I seek Your comfort and rest. You are so trusting and reliable.

I adore You Abba Father.

I trust you wholeheartedly. In Jesus’ name, I courageously pray.

Amen.

Seek Him

“I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore, my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices. My flesh also will dwell securely.” Psalm 16:8-9

“When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, ‘Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.’ Do not hide Your face from me, do not turn Your servant away in anger. You have been my help; Do not abandon me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation!” Psalm 27:8-9

“My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul. Awake, harp and lyre; I will awaken the dawn! I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples, and I will sing praises to You among the nations.” Psalm 108:1-3

Lord, You have been right next to me all along even when I refused to acknowledge Your presence. You were steadfast, faithful and never abandoned me. Because of Your mercies, compassion, and forgiveness, I will never be shaken. You are at my right hand guiding and directing my steps. I will always seek Your face.

You have provided and consoled me in moments of distress. You have been a Rock and Refuge. My heart is no longer anxious, Lord, I know you are already taking care of all the details and have been orchestrating a better future for my family and I. Thank You for your daily portion.

In Jesus’ name, I am singing tunes of joy today. Amen.

In the Shelter of His wings.

“O Lord, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness and speaks truth in his heart.” Psalm 15:1-2

“For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. And now my head will be lifted above my enemies around me, and I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.” Psalm 27:5,6

“Let me dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.” Psalm 61:4

Lord,

Help me maintain good character and integrity in all endeavors.

When trouble arrives, help me discern the best strategy to embrace the challenge and speak Truth to my heart always. You are a Counselor and Refuge at the time of confusion and turmoil.

I will rejoice and sing melodic tunes to the Lord as I embrace today’s troubling circumstances. In Jesus’ name, I boldly and courageously pray. Amen
