Oh Lord, I pray that people will be willing to stop serving things and people that go before You. This can be praying to Mary and serving and following people in this life. For You, we ought to lift You up alone in prayer, praise, and worship. All wisdom and counsel that we need for our growth in the faith and salvation comes by Your hand. This can be through the Bible, prayer, worship, and even through other people in the faith. Yes, God, Your words are a lamp unto our feet and it can also come from other good brothers and sisters in the faith. I know that I do not have it all together. There are many things I still do not know, so gaining wise counsel from others in the faith is so welcoming. I just pray that their wisdom is coming from You and not themselves. There is nourishment and peace that come from Your words and it is made evident when You are speaking through them and when it doesn’t come from You also. Yes, Lord, it would be amazing if we could have Your presence round about us at all times. Then, could we know for a surety that what we are learning comes from Your hands alone. Even better would be if You stepped into the room with us and spoke to us directly. Wow! That would be amazing, but I know that the Holy Spirit is with us now to confirm Your truth in us for now. So we continue to seek Your hands for guidance and direction and know that the Spirit will lead us into all truth. Thank You, Lord. I believe in You. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
