Send out your light and your truth; let them guide me. Let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the place where you live.
Psalm 43:3 (NLT)
When we have challenges and difficulties, like the psalmist, we need to ask God to send His light and truth to guide our path, to lead us. In times of trouble and darkness, when we feel lost, we need to ask God to show us His mercy, pour into us the brightness of hope. To ask God to guide us away from sin and lead us in righteousness to the place where He lives.
Pour into me the brightness of your daybreak! Pour into me your rays of revelation-truth! Let them comfort and gently lead me onto the shining path, showing the way into your burning presence, into your many sanctuaries of holiness.
Psalm 43:3 (TPT)
Are shadows of darkness blocking your view of the light, truth, and bright hope of Jesus?
Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your mercy and grace. Let Your light and truth guide our path. Forgive us our sins and lead us in the way of holiness and righteousness. Lord, fill us with Your light and grant us Your peace. Like the beauty of the bright opening blossoms of the crepe myrtle, help us to shine with your bright light and be open-hearted to Your way. In Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen
24 I want you to treat others fairly. So let fair treatment roll on just as a river does! Always do what is right. Let right living flow along like a stream that never runs dry!
Amos 5:24 (NIRV)
Amos was a shepherd who had a vision about Israel back in the 8th Century BC. He wanted the people to know that God wasn’t impressed with how the rich and powerful were taking advantage of the poor. Amos called for repentance. He wanted the people to realize God wanted justice to roll like a river, always doing right. For righteousness to prevail, and justice flow like a stream that never runs dry. To have a return to true worship and following God’s commandments. For justice not to be obstructed but to be fair for all. A timely message.
Do you know what I want? I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. That’s what I want. That’s all I want.
Amos 5:24 (MSG)
Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your guidance and forgiveness. Teach us to be fair, caring, and to do what is right; let justice roll like a river. Let your Word guide us, and direct us in our dealings with others. Help us to realize and do what is right in Your eyes. Like the open and vibrant blooms of the chrysanthemum, let us be open-hearted and vibrant in our love. Guide us in Your truth. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen
