Lord, you have commanded me to be strong, to be courageous. You have commanded me to be careful to obey ALL your Law. “Do not turn from it to the right or to the left. Do this,” you say, “that you may be successful where ever you go!”
Lord, reveal to me the commands I have turned from. Reveal to me my fears, discouraging thoughts. Reveal to me where I have been lazy, sloppy, and careless in obeying your words, the nudge of your Holy Spirit, the example of Christ. Show me where I have veered to the left and left you. Show me where I have gone too far to the right in order to “be right” rather than be loving. Lord, I claim your promise that if I obey you in all things, love you above all others, and allow Jesus to have his will lived out in my life that I will be successful where ever you send me. Amen.
