I love David’s prayer in Psalm 25. “Show me your ways,” he says, “Teach me. Guide me.”
I love what David is asking for. And I love what he’s not. He’s not asking God to show him the way or the path or the truth. He’s asking God to show him his ways.
Because there’s a difference.
A lot of ways might appeal, a lot of paths might look good, a lot of what we see and hear might be convincing. But if we want to be confident that we’re on the right road or making the best decision, we need to let God direct our steps. Let’s make this psalm our Friday Prayer:
Show ____ your ways. Teach ____ your paths. Guide ____ in your truth. (Psalm 25:4-5)
