Lord, show me your right way of living,
and make it easy for me to follow.
People are looking for my weaknesses,
so show me how you want me to live. (Psalm 5:8)
It’s never too late to get on the ancient path. We delude ourselves into thinking that we need to make a plan, but actually we need to be on His plan. If we listen to society we set things up to live for self, but the Bible tells us differently. The Bible tells us that we should look for Him to tell us how to live. Psalm 5 continues on to tell us a bit more about how to do just that- by trusting Him:
But let those who trust in you be happy forever.
Protect and strengthen those who love your name.
Lord, when you bless good people,
you surround them with your love, like a large shield that protects them.
That large shield of protection is sort of like the bubble wrap I wrote about the other day. He protects us, He envelops us in his protection, and surrounds us like a large shield.
