|“Teach me to do your will…”|
Do you remember the song from the musical or movie, “The Sound of Music,” with the words: “Climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every highway, ’til you find your dream”?
This song paints a musical picture of how difficult life can sometimes be. And, that picture is true for many of us.
The Psalmist also understood the trials and tribulations of life when he wrote these hopeful and encouraging words of prayer in Psalm 143:10:
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
As a new day begins, we may trust the Holy Spirit to make our pathway level and to lead us along in a trustworthy manner.
Let us make every effort to seek to know and to do the will of God by studying His Word and obediently following His direction.
Then, let us step out with confidence and share God's love with those we encounter along the way.
