"Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me." - Psalm 119:133

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

This simple yet powerful prayer from Psalm holds a heart-full wish. It's like asking for a friend's hand to hold as we walk along a path, isn't it? But not just any path or any friend. It's God's path, and God's hand we're asking for.

It reminds me of times when I am at a crossroad, unsure which way to go. It could be deciding to share or not, to help or not, or to say sorry when I've done something wrong. I often think, “What would make God happy?” It's like having a gentle whisper in the heart, guiding.

God’s words in the Bible are like a map. A map showing where to step next to be good, to be kind, and to stay away from wrong. Just like a parent holding a child’s hand, guiding away from puddles, God’s words guide us away from wrong.

My Prayer

Dear God,

Thank you for giving us your words, like a map full of love. Please help me to look at your map every day, to make choices that make you smile.

When I am unsure, help me to feel your gentle whisper in my heart, guiding my steps. Let me walk in your love, away from wrong, closer to being kind and good.

I ask not to walk alone but with your loving hand holding mine, today and always.

Amen.
