Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation;
on You I wait all the day.
Those were the words of King David as he faced the challenges of life. His desire was to follow God's direction throughout the day.
We are all familiar with London's famous clock...often called the 'Big Ben'. We may even have the chimes on clocks in our home...or as door chimes. But did you know that the melody comes from a composition by Handel, and is found in the fifth bar of 'I Know that My Redeemer Liveth'? The chimes are ringing out this beautiful prayer...
All through this hour,
Lord, be my guide;
And by Thy power,
No foot shall slide.
What a great reminder of our continual need for God's guidance. Just like King David, our lives are filled with challenges. Just like King David, we have a Guide. May God be our first thought in the morning...and our focus throughout the day. Let's let Him lead us through 2014!
