I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.” I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:2,7,11)
Father, you are reminding me that I have nothing good apart from You. I like to think that the successes I have are my own, but You are the own who has provided everything for me. You have given me the wisdom, strength, favor, and everything else that I need for my job, my relationships, and my ministry. Thank you for instructing me in Your ways. Help me to heed Your voice and be obedient to Your calling on my life. My own plans will ultimately lead to my own demise, but You lead me to abundant life. My joy is found in Your salvation. All of the pleasures of this world are only temporary, but Your eternal presence is overwhelming. Thank you for inviting me to spend time with You. I want to know you more and grow to be more like You every day. Please guide my steps today and reveal Your purposes for my life.
