steps through difficult days

Psalm 73:23-26,28

Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
24 You will guide me with Your counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.

Psalms 32:8 He will instruct me and teach me the way I am to go
He will guide me with His eye upon me.

25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.

Philippians 3:8-10 Consider all things loss for the excellence
Of the knowledge of Jesus

26 My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever

strength - rock,
portion - Zech. 2:12 inheritance

Psalms 84:2 My soul longs for the courts of the Lord
My heart and flesh cry out for the living God.

But it is good for me to draw near to God;
I have put my trust in the Lord GOD,
That I may declare all Your works.

Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance
Of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience
and our bodies washed with pure water.

Devotion concentrates on a particular pursuit, purpose, or cause. One
devoted to Christ recognizes his fleshly tendencies. The Word shapes
his thinking and he devotees time to prayer ,waiting upon the Lord and gives
himself to praise and thanksgiving.
