READ

Psalms 1-3


PONDER

“The Lord shall guide thee continually.” Isa. 58:11.

 

WHAT aileth thee? Hast thou lost thy way? Art thou entangled in a dark wood, and canst thou not find thy paths? Stand still, and see the salvation of God. He knows the way, and he will direct thee in it if thou cry unto him.

Every day brings its own perplexity. How sweet to feel that the guidance of the Lord is continual! If we choose our own way, or consult with flesh and blood, we cast off the Lord’s guidance; but if we abstain from self-will, then he will direct every step of our road, every hour of the day, and every day of the year, and every year of our life. If we will commit our way unto the Lord, he will direct our course so that we shall not lose ourselves.

But note to whom this promise is made. Read the previous verse: “If thou draw out thy soul to the hungry.” We must feel for others, and give them, not a few dry crusts, but such things as we ourselves would wish to receive. If we show a tender care for our fellow-creatures in the hour of their need, then will the Lord attend to our necessities, and make himself our continual Guide. Jesus is the Leader, not of misers, nor of those who oppress the poor, but of the kind and tender-hearted. Such persons are pilgrims, who shall never miss their way.


Spurgeon, C.H. (1834-1892)


PRAY

After a moment of quietness, let the Spirit of God lead you as you pray for 5 people who you would love to see become followers of Jesus Christ, or people who you know have strayed from God. Name them before the Lord, asking God to reveal Himself to them, and that He would draw them in grace, mercy and love to trust and follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.  


Close your prayer time with the Lord’s Prayer:


Our Father, who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. 

Thy will be done 

on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day 

our daily bread. 

And forgive us our debts, 

as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For Thine is the kingdom, 

and the power, and the glory, 

for ever. Amen.
