King David knows the answer is in following God’s directions.
I need to do my best to find Him in everything. I can go my own way and I can go His way. That is the choice that I have every moment of every day.
Happiness, true happiness, comes from keeping one foot in front of another on the road that Jesus wants me to be on.
Jesus speaks to my heart in a frank and direct way. For that I am very thankful. I hear him. Will I listen and do what He has in mind for me?
You’re more than happy when you follow his directions, doing your best to find him. That’s right—you don’t go off on your own; you walk straight along the road he set. You, God, prescribed the right way to live; now you expect us to live it.
Oh, that my steps might be steady, keeping to the course you set; Then I’d never have any regrets in comparing my life with your counsel. I thank you for speaking straight from your heart; I learn the pattern of your righteous ways. I’m going to do what you tell me to do; don’t ever walk off and leave me. Psalm 119:1-8
