I was reading a few verses from one of the psalms this morning. (Psalm 119)
9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
12 Praise be to you, Lord;
teach me your decrees.
13 With my lips I tell
all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
15 I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
16 I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.
This is what I noticed. The importance of …
Staying on the path
Living according to God’s word.
Seeking God with all my heart;
Hiding God’s word in my heart
Then I read a few verses from John’s Gospel chapter 10, where Jesus talks about himself as ‘The Good Shepherd,’ and noticed the importance of
Hearing the voice of Jesus
Recognising the voice of Jesus
These are things that anyone can do. You don’t have to be a religion expert to hear the voice of God. Just a willingness to be open.
As I do the normal day to day things, I’m just asking where God is at work in the world around me and the people I meet.
