But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. (John 16:13)
Lord, I sometimes feel lost and confused. Open my eyes to see the path You would have me follow. Make Your will known to me through Your Word and through the counsel of those You have put in my life. In Your name I pray, Amen.
Surely, I wait for the Lord; who bends down to me and hears my cry, Draws me up from the pit of destruction, out of the muddy cay, Sets my feet upon rock, steadies my steps, And puts a new song in my mouth, a hymn to our God. Many shall look on in fear and they shall trust in the Lord. (Psalm 40: 2-4)
To you, O Lord, I life up my soul, my God, in you I trust; do not let me be disgraced; do not let my enemies gloat over me. No one is disgraced who waits for you, but only those who are treacherous without cause. Make known to me your ways, Lord; teach me your paths. Guide me by your fidelity and teach me, for you I wait all the day long. (Psalm 25: 2-5)
