Help Us Obey, You
“Daily Prayer for August 14
CHRISTOPH FRIEDRICH BLUMHARDT
If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea. Isaiah 48:18, NIV
Lord our God, grant that we may heed your commandments, that our peace may be like a river and our righteousness like the waves of the sea. Be with us through your Spirit, we pray. Speak with us and tell us what we need to hear so that we can understand what draws us always nearer to you. Show the might of your hand to help us and all people. Even under judgment we shall not despair, we shall not lose courage because of troubles and distress. Come with your strength, that we may grow strong to overcome the world through Jesus Christ the Savior. Amen.”
We can get so caught up in our own desires, that we ignore the voice of God. His way is always better than our way. Yet it is hard to sometimes to see this truth.
We need to begin each day determined to walk in the truth of God. To be willing to serve Him, in all circumstances. We need to pray for guidance.
