Since You are my Rock and my Fortress
"Since You are my Rock and my Fortress, for the sake of Your name—lead and guide me!" Psalm 31:3
This is the language of one who is conscious of his own ignorance and liability to go wrong—and who has faith in the wisdom and goodness of Him whose help is sought.
Guide me—for I know not the way I should take.
Lead me—for my steps are apt to slip.
Show me the right way, and help me to walk, in it!
Be my strength in my weakness—as well as my director in my ignorance. Take me by the hand and lead me as a simple, trustful child . Let me lean on Your arm, as a weak sister leans on that of her strong brother. Commune with me along the way—and reveal Your love to me. Favor me with Your companionship—as well as Your guidance. So shall I be enabled patiently to tread the thorny path, and trustfully to walk in the midst of perils.
"Yes, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil—for You are with me! Your rod and Your staff—they comfort me!" Psalm 23:4 </a>
For Your name's sake—let Your presence go with me.
For Your mercy's sake—guide a feeble, erring one.
For Jesus' sake—lead me in the way I should go.
"Guide me with Your counsel—and afterward receive me to glory!" Amen.
Lead me, O my Father, lead me;
Ever hold me with Your hand,
Lest my feet should wander from Thee,
Where temptations thickly stand.
O keep me near Thee,
Until I dwell at Your right hand.
Back to Every Day!
