Oh, that my ways were directed To keep Your statutes!
This verse is a reminder that our true delight is found in following the path God has set before us.
In a world full of distractions and temptations, it’s easy to stray from the righteous path. In moments of weakness we can be led astray. The psalmist’s expresses a deep yearning to remain steadfast in obedience so that we don’t get off path.
The desire to follow God’s way is a powerful mindset. When we make a conscious effort to align our lives with God’s will, we find a profound sense of purpose and contentment.
What path do you see yourself on today? Are you being guided by the Spirit of God?
If you find yourself off track or going down the wrong path, make a u-turn today. Allow God to guide your steps and put you back where you belong.
Lord, I long to be steadfast in obeying Your decrees and to live according to Your wisdom. Strengthen me to remain obedient to Your commandments. Help me to seek Your will and way for my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
