Sending Light and Truth

Send forth Your light and Your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to Your holy mountain, to the place where You dwell. – (Psalm 43:3, NIV)

 

When we ask for God’s truth, we are asking to be provided the right path to follow. As we ask for His light, essentially, we are requesting clear vision to follow that which He has set before us. Thankfully, because of Jesus, we no longer have to go anywhere in particular to find the “holy mountain” (His temple), but rather when we are in relationship with Him, His Spirit dwells within us, and we need only to call on His Name. He hears our every cry, and the Lord is with us; always. His light and truth are available, we need only to ask of Him, to lead and guide us in the way He is calling us to go. May we remember to request that the Lord grant us His light and His truth to guide us in all things and at all times, so that we will faithfully walk where He leads.

 

Oh Lord, send Your light,I Will Go

So I’ll clearly see;

The path You’ve made plain,

Prepared just for me.

God, show me Your truth,

So that I will know;

Where I’m meant to walk,

Which way I’m to go.

Thank You for Your grace,

That’s granted to me;

A heart where You dwell,

And Your love to see.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we ask, You answer. Thank You that You willingly and lovingly provide the right path for us to follow, and give us light to see the way we are meant to go. Forgive us for the times we neglect to ask, or choose to walk a different direction, despite knowing which way we are meant to go. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would walk in the light of Your truth in all things and at all times. Show us how to love those around us in such a way, that they may come to understand the magnitude of Your goodness and grace. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we ask You for what You are ready and willing to give. Amen.

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy. – Hebrews 4:16

For His Glory and Honor

To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, He will give eternal life. – (Romans 2:7, NIV)

 

Some people live for God’s glory, for honor, and for life that cannot be destroyed. They live for those things by always continuing to do good. God will give eternal life to them. – (Romans 2:7, ERV)

 

When we live a life invested in Christ, we are compelled to do good. God grants us eternal life for our choosing to live for Him, and allowing Him to lead and guide us. It is not something we earn, but when we are continually seeking Him, we cannot help but respond according to His good and perfect will. May we persist in doing good, as all glory and honor belong to Him who grants us life eternal.

 

A life invested,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAin the will of God,

shall illuminate,

which path we’re to trod.

Seek the Lord’s glory,

let honor be shown;

Christ the eternal,

who sits on the throne.

For His ways are good,

we’ll not be destroyed;

when we live His way,

all hope is employed.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that a life of persistence in doing good for Your honor and glory will not be destroyed. Thank You that we are assured of life everlasting in You. Thank You that our eternity was set in place from the moment we first received Your grace, rather than through our doing a set amount of good. Thank You that doing good is our response to Your goodness and grace. Forgive us for allowing our perspective to become askew, and give us clear vision as to how we can honor You with our life, as You have given unto us. Teach us to trust You more, so that we will answer Your every leading. Help us to love and do good to others, even when they are not good to us. May many come into a lasting relationship with You, Lord. Be glorified O God, as we persist in doing good to bring glory and honor to Your Name. Amen.
