Where do you turn when threatened?
“Send your light and your truth; let them guide me
Let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the place where you live.
There I will go to the altar of God, to God — the source of all my joy.
I will praise you with my harp, O God, my God!
Why am I discouraged? Why so sad?
I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again — my Savior and my God!”
An appeal for guidance
“Being lost in the darkness can be a very frightening situation. But imagine if you were also being pursued by people who were out to kill you!
This was the psalmist’s urgent dilemma, and he didn’t know which way to turn. But he did know to whom he would cry out for help. He asked God to show him the way, to guide him in the truth, and to lead him to the Lord’s presence.
Pray that God will guide your steps.
Set your sights on your final destination — God’s dwelling place — and encourage yourself with the prospect of living joyfully in the Lord’s presence.
A pray for today…
Dear God, guide me with your light and truth…
