2 “I am about to go the way of all the earth,” he said. “So be strong, show yourself a man, 3 and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in his ways, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and requirements, as written in the Law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go, 4 and that the LORD may keep his promise to me: ‘If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart and soul, you will never fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.’
The hymn writer wrote, ‘Prone to wonder, Lord I feel it. Prone to leave the God I love.” Certainly I feel that tendency to wander… I feel the gravitational pull of planet earth. It takes courage and strength to stand against that pull and to walk faithfully with the Lord. It requires intentionality and a resoluteness of heart to remain in vital connection with Jesus.
Lord, this morning I set my heart on you and am determined to walk with You. I humble myself under Your mighty hand knowing that You are the One who will raise me up. You are the Source of strength for me. Thank You for living with me. I love You… I am Yours.
