The Light Daily Devotional – When the Lord is set before you
Focus: When the Lord is set before you
The word for today
The triumph over sin and the influences of darkness can only be achieved by placing the Lord at the forefront of one’s life. With the Lord leading the way, the path ahead is illuminated, and the obstacles that once seemed insurmountable become mere stepping stones on the journey to fulfillment!
“I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.” Psalm 16:8 NKJV
Embarking on the journey of destiny without the surety of God’s guidance is a treacherous venture. To set the Lord before you is to acknowledge His sovereignty and hold His word in the highest regard, recognizing it as the ultimate source of truth and wisdom for navigating life’s challenges. King David serves as a shining example of the blessings that come from placing the Lord at the forefront of one’s life, as he became the man God destined him to be and lived a life that reflected His will.
However, it was also in King David’s life that we see the consequences of disregarding God’s teachings when he turned a blind eye to God’s word and sullied his sacred commitment by taking the life of Uriah after sleeping with his wife. In this, we learn the importance of keeping the Lord before us, for it is only then that we may fulfill the purpose for which we were created and live a life that truly honours God.”
The assurance that the Lord goes before us, bringing His word to pass, is a steadfast promise that we will never stumble or falter. In setting the Lord before us, we align ourselves with His divine plan and receive the guidance, protection, and blessings that come from walking in obedience to His will. So let us hold fast to this truth, knowing that as we set the Lord before us, we will experience a life filled with hope, joy, and unending victory over sin and darkness.
Have you set the Lord before you?
Prayer: Lord! Be my anchor and give me the grace to obey your word in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Let God guide your path and use His teachings as the foundation for a successful and fulfilling journey towards fulfillment!
Have an impressive week ahead!
