Guide Me . . .

This morning I  wrote up this little declaration for a friend, regarding being directed by the Lord.  I thought maybe some of you may want to declare it over your day/circumstances if you are needing direction in a certain area. :-)

God you say,  “you will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths you will guide them.  You will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.  These are things you will do, you will not forsake me.  I will not hunger or thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on me.  For you have compassion on me and will guide and lead me beside springs of water.  For you guide me always and satisfy my needs and strengthen my frame.  I will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.”   Today, God I receive your guidance along unfamiliar paths.  Thank you for turning darkness into light before me and making rough places smooth.  Thank you that you will not forsake me, as I look to you for direction and leading.  I delight in your compassion towards me and receive the refreshing that comes from being led beside springs of living water.  Thank you for the promise that you guide me always and satisfy my needs, strengthening me now as I wait for your leading.    

The Lord  says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” Father, I receive your teaching and directing into the very BEST of all that you have prepared for me to walk in.  

Thank you, Lord, for your direction.   Direct my footsteps now according to your word.  Let me walk in the path of your commands for there I find delight. Thank you, that my steps are directed by you, Lord. Thank you, for your unfailing love and that you refresh my soul. Guide me Father, in your counsel and your truth, and teach me for you are God my Savior and my hope is in you all day long. You are my rock and my fortress, guide me now along the right paths for your name sake, that you would be lifted up and exalted in every situation.  

Holy Spirit, thank you that you are the Spirit of Truth and you guide me into all truth.  Thank you that you speak only what you hear from the Father.  Please, guide me and direct me now into all truth in everything I am facing today.
