Hurry with your answer, God! I’m nearly at the end of my rope. Don’t turn away; don’t ignore me! That would be certain death. If you wake me each morning with the sound of your loving voice, I’ll go to sleep each night trusting in you. Point out the road I must travel; I’m all ears, all eyes before you. Save me from my enemies, God— you’re my only hope! Teach me how to live to please you, because you’re my God. Lead me by your blessed Spirit into cleared and level pastureland”. Psalm 143:7-10 (MSG)
We can find ourselves on some rocky roads, unfamiliar paths, or way too familiar pits—yet in the best of times and in the worst of times we are never alone! God’s precious Holy Spirit, our constant Companion and Faithful Friend, will lead us and guide us into all truth, into the wide-open spaces God has for us, and into the fullness of His dreams for us coming true.
He is our hope when we are discouraged or uncertain; our help when we are worn or weak. He is the light in the darkness and the air we breathe in when the world has stolen our breath away.
He will come quickly, never wavering, with the answers you need and the healing you seek. He will calm and quiet your weary soul, and awaken your heart to who you really are. Tuck in, dear heart, as close as you can get. He has you now, sheltered and secure, and He always will.
Blessed Holy Spirit, this is exactly what I pray today—that You would lead me into the pleasant places You have prepared. That You would teach me how to hear Your voice; to see as You see; to please You each and every day.
There is no life, no true life, apart from You Holy Spirit. I commit afresh, my life and my days. Lead me and guide me in all of Your ways!
You are my radiant hope, Lord. The Source of my salvation. I trust You, with all of my heart. Surround me with Your wrap-around presence, I pray.
