Day Four: Teach Me to Walk in Obedience to Your Ways

Blessed are those
who hear the word of God
and keep it!
- Luke 11:28

Lord, your Word says that those of us who love Your law will have great peace and nothing will cause us to stumble (Psalm 119:165). I love Your law because I know it is good and it is there for my benefit. Enable me to live in obedience to each part of it so that I will not stumble and fall. Help me to obey You so that I can dwell in the confidence and peace of knowing I am living Your way.

My heart wants to obey You in all things, Lord. Show me where I am not doing that. If there are steps of obedience I need to take that I don't understand, I pray that You would open my eyes to see the truth and help me to take those steps. I know I can't do all things right without Your help, so I ask that You would enable me to live in obedience to Your ways. "With my whole heart I have sought You; oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!" (Psalm 119:10).

Your Word says that "if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us" (I John 1:8). I don' t want to deceive myself by not asking You where I am missing the mark You have set for my life. Reveal to me when I am not dong things I should be doing. Show me if I'm doing things I should not. Help me to hear Your specific instructions to me. Speak to me clearly through Your Word so I will know what's right and what's wrong. I don't want to grieve the Holy Spirit in anything I do (Ephesians 4:30). Help me to be ever learning about Your ways so I can live in the fullness of Your presence and move into all You have for me.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord will give grace and glory;
no good thing will He withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
- Psalm 84:11
He who keeps His commandments
abides in Him, and He in him.
And by this we know that He abides in us,
by the Spirit of whom He has given us.
- I John 3:24
