Have you felt like you were walking on a daisy-lined path with the Lord, and then, the path ended? What do you do?
Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud;
be gracious to me and answer me!
You have said, “Seek my face.”
My heart says to you,
“Your face, LORD, do I seek.”
. . .
Teach me your way, O LORD,
and lead me on a level path
because of my enemies. Psalm 27:7-11
Some think that David wrote these words before he was king, when his parents died, or he was being pursued by Saul. Others think that he wrote this when he was old and after his men told him that he should not go into war again. 2 Samuel 21:16-17
Ancient pleas for favor and guidance, and yet, they are relevant to us today.
David knew how to get back on the right path. He prayed, and he trusted that God would hear him and answer him.
