Let Me Know You

Reveal yourself to me, Father.

Open my eyes,  open my ears,

soften my heart towards the things you love.

I join with Moses today and ask, “Let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor.”

My soul longs for understanding, Father.  Renew my mind so it focuses on your truth only.  Transform my thinking so the lies of the Evil one have no power in my life.

Teach my feet to follow in your ways.  Train my hands to reach out to the world that you love, God.

Like Moses, I want to enjoy your favor, Father God.  Guide me so I may live under your umbrella of blessing all my days here on earth.

I trust you with my life – you created me and you know me.  I look forward to that day you have already determined when you will take my hand and guide me home to be with you.

Such a glorious day!

I love you, Abba Father.

Teach Us

Do I know the right way to live?

Do you?

It’s hard to figure out, isn’t it?  So many choices.  Our world is over-filled with things that influence our thinking.  Sometimes – in an effort to be ‘informed’ – we fill our minds with all kinds of opinions and perspectives, never knowing what the real facts are.

Is that good?

Is that bad?

How do we know?

As a Christ-follower, I am so glad I have a compass.  I have a Spirit living inside of me who guides me to the truth.  Then I need to listen and obey.

In Kings 8, King Solomon is standing in front of the people of Israel at the dedication of the Lord’s Temple and he prays to God, “Teach them the right way to live.”

Solomon was very wise and he knew that our Master Teacher is God.  The only One we can always trust is God.

After asking God to teach his people how to live, Solomon then says, “And send rain on the land you gave your people for an inheritance.”

Bless my people.

Teach us your truth, dear Father, and bless us through it.
