(Day 33) “But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you. Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.” Psalms 5:7-8
Verse 4 says “evil may not dwell with you” so it is only through an abundance of steadfast love that I am able to enter God’s house. It is only because of Christ and my justification through His purchase that this is possible. David calling on God to lead him because of the vigilance of David’s enemies really helped me see the plight that is before us Christians today as well – we have a vigilant enemy in our adversaries. We need the leading of God’s hands to be successful in negotiating our way to safety. I love how the sentiment here is recalled in Proverbs 3:6, Proverbs 4:25, and Isaiah 42:16.
