Make me know your ways, ADONAI,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth, and teach me;
for you are the God who saves me,
my hope is in you all day long.
Nothing I do under my own strength and understanding is worth anything, because Adonai is not glorified in selfish actions. Yet when I cling to His Word and follow in His ways I am blessed. There may still be struggle but it is the struggle of creation and refinement leading to celebration and joy, but only if I stay on His path and in His Word.
