I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
Yes, LORD, it is You Who is The Way, and it is ours to follow You and none other. LORD, it is hard for us to take just one step at a time without a clue as to what the next step will be. Thank You for Your Blessed Assurance that You are all we need and that Your Grace is all-suficient. It is You Who is with us -- we are walking and talking with You, the Maker of the Universe! Incomprehensible, except that we know that we know.
We know that we live in You, and that You live in us by Your Holy Spirit. Therefore we also know have Eternal Life in Heaven even now as we live on earth in the here-below. Help us learn to love the process of being with You, learning to listen for Your leading and to discern the enemy's wiles. Thank You for revealing one of Satan's favorite strategies is getting us busy -- merely busy. Help us discern his counterfeits, recalling that "good" has two O's and sounds like this " Oh-Oh!" But God, when it's You, we say "Ohhhhh!"
