Devotion 4-13-24, Psalm 143:8- "Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul." There are days, non-trouble days, that fly by without much thought of God or help; but, let trouble arrive and all that changes. As soon as we encounter trouble, we begin looking for help. The psalmist, David, was in serious trouble; he had enemies, and he sought God. Enemies, in any form, are part of life. Illness, death, misunderstandings, false accusations, disobedient children, overbearing adults - all these and more could easily be considered enemies. David's example to us is he turned to God. He prayed and he believed God. He trusted God, Who was his steadfast Rock in the midst of everything. He took all of his problems, his enemies, his own weaknesses, his fears, to God. He knew God. He spent time with Him, talking, listening, and obeying. David not only allowed God, but welcomed God, into his life. He requested God's guidance and then most often followed what God said to do. When David prayed, "Teach me the way in which I should walk; for I lift up my soul to You," he meant it. He planned to be directed. He planned for God to show the way. He planned to trust God. That was his intention. We may follow David's example and, with intention, pray for God's direction and path. If we are on a path of problems and enemies, we can pray for God's wisdom, His eyes, so we may see the way. We may pray for a different path; but if it does not change, we can ask God to teach us how to walk on the on the path we are on. There is much to learn. Offer your soul, yourself, to God. Do not move your concentrated focus off of God. Trust Him, allow Him to direct, then walk where He leads. Proverbs 3:5-6- "Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight."
