The Lord watches over the way of the righteous. (Psalm 1:6) Except there is no one righteous, not even one (Romans 3:10). All have failed to keep his commandments. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). All have gone astray. Each of us has turned to our own way (Isaiah 53:6).
But God made him who had no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Christ we might have the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Lord, please watch over my steps. I admit that on my own I have no righteousness, no right to call on you for help, protection, or guidance. Through the righteousness of Christ, though, you draw me into your arms. As I stray from your path, gently lead me back in step with you. Watch over me today and keep me close. In the nature and name of Christ, this I ask. Amen
