Our scripture this morning is Psalms 143:8-10.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.

Every day we have a chance to begin again. God is there waiting for us, no matter what situation we face. Even if we have totally messed up the day before, God is there in the new day to welcome us to a new opportunity.

We can’t save ourselves, but we can as the psalmist says, entrust our lives to God. God is the very source of our being and without Him we are literally nothing. Asking for His guidance strengthens our relationship with Him and our brothers and sisters.

This passage ends with a request that “Your good spirit lead me on level ground.” When we follow the path intended for us, it may not always be easy, but because we place our trust in God, we know it is the right path. Teach us to do Your will, Lord!

Heavenly Father, we often choose our own ways instead of Yours. Forgive us, help us to give up our selfish sin, and send us to share Your love with everyone. Amen.
