I Need My King

So often I find myself crying out to the Lord. "I need You." And it is so true, each day I seem to need Him more and more. My dependence on my King's counsel is vital to my well being. Hearing Him can be a challenge though. Doubts, rebellion, fear all step in from time to time hindering my walk. However, I have the assurance that God will not allow these hindrances from dominating and He will intervene to draw me back to Himself when I lose my way.

This morning I am desperate to hear the voice of my King, to have the assurance of His solid counsel, to walk the walk my heart professes...which is a test in and of itself. What if my heart betrays me? What if my heart is false? Out of your heart flows the wellspring of life - I am to guard it. Have I let my guard down recently? Lord, Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

I need my King, my God, my Saviour, my Counsellor and I am not ashamed to admit this. I fall short of the Glory of God, but I do persevere. And I persevere because of the hope I have in Him. I seek to honour my God. My King. Show me how this day Lord, to Your Glory.

They Did Not Realize
