“This is what the Lord says: Stand by the roadways and look. Ask about the ancient paths: Which is the way to what is good? Then take it and find rest for yourselves. But they protested: We won't!”
Heavenly Father, thank You for faithful men like Jeremiah who was obedient to his calling, despite the immense opposition he received from his fellow-countrymen. I pray that I may be faithful to my calling and walk in the way of peace and righteousness, for Your name's sake.. even when I am opposed by family or friends. Keep me low and the cross and broken before you I pray, and may I walk in spirit and truth towards the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. May I die to self and live for Christ alone for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Source: Verse of the
day for Jeremiah 6:16
Heavenly Father, I bow my knee before You in prayer and praise. Lead and guide me today in all You say and do. May I walk in spirit and truth today and be sensitive to Your gentle guidance.
Help me I pray to fix my eyes on the Lord Jesus, knowing that without Him I will quickly stray from the path that is best for me. Lord I believe that You have scheduled every day of my life and I do not want to stray from the path that You would have me take.
Help me to be faithful to You and to willing go along the path of Your choosing, knowing that it may conflict with my own desires and wishes. Develop in me a heart that delights to do Your will so that the longings of my heart are brought into line with Your plans and purposes and Your will for my life.
Let my eyes always be looking to You and keep me from the looking at the storms and difficulties of life, knowing that You are with me to lead and guide and to uphold to Your praise and glory.
Thank You that Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life and I desire to do only that which is pleasing in Your site, in His name I pray,
