“You are my rock and my fortress; therefore, for Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.” Psalm 31:3
“They shall come with weeping, and with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; for I am a Father to Israel.” Jeremiah 31:9
He who comes in this manner will certainly be led of God.
Now, O Lord, I am blind, and heartily desire also to be directed by You alone in all my ways, in great and also in little things. Allow me never to follow my own spirit and natural inclinations, whatever good appearance they may have. Be pleased to cross them continually, whenever they are contrary to Your will. Often have I been deceived by false appearances already; my zeal has not always been according to knowledge; I have put natural passion in the place thereof and thought I was contending for the faith once delivered to the saints, and have afterward found it no better than the effects of a party spirit. Be then a Father to me, O Lord, and instruct Your waiting child in all necessary truths and lead me in all Your righteous ways. Make me to sit down at Your feet as a little child, and seek only to know Your will. Teach me to submit to You, and approve of all You do and all You require.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
