Today’s Nourishment: “Make me know Thy ways, O Lord; Teach me Thy paths!” (Psalm 25:4).
One thing I’ve realized over the past two years is “You don’t know what you don’t know”. This is an amazing prayer to pray. “Teach me Your ways, show me Your paths.”
Imagine hiking through a forest. Up ahead is a beautiful waterfall, which God created for you to enjoy. But the path is hidden, it’s not available for just everyone to see. You would have to hear the rushing waters cascading, or someone would have to tell you it was there, for you to have the desire to see it. “God show me your ways”… I want to see that waterfall. Show me the path to it.
God I want to know your ways for I can’t even fathom them. My mind can’t even imagine the life you’ve planned for me. I don’t know how to dream Your dreams. Show me Your ways. I don’t know the miraculous plans, which You have laid out for my life, for my children’s lives. Show me Your ways…Show me the paths to get there.
Show me what I don’t know; show me where I am deceived; show me where my thinking is wrong; show me what I need to learn; show me what I need to lay down and let go of; show me what I need to pick up and embrace; show me what I need to become .
Share some things the Lord shows you in the conversation below.
