“When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful.” Proverbs 29:18 NLT
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your divine guidance, discipline, and correction. Thank You for loving me so much that You refuse to let me go too far astray. You have given me Your written word as a light to my path and a lamp to my feet. As I enter into this fresh New Year, help me to continually seek Your divine guidance.
Keep me from seeking out worldly wisdom and unwise counsel. Only You know the plans that You have for me and only Your will brings hope and joy to my soul. Keep me from following my flesh and indulging in the desires of my heart. Help me to align my will with Yours.
Shape and mold me in this New Year; help me to continually grow deeper in knowledge and faith. May my lips praise You for all that You have done and all that You have yet to do. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
