Honor and virtue are not innate to the human heart. Our natural instincts are selfish and debasing. You teach that only by accepting Your standards and inviting Your Spirit into our lives can we hope to make wise and honorable decisions.
Even then, I still fail, but You are there…as soon as I call…to restore me to the right path. You are my protection and the source of my wisdom. You are the joy of my life. I want to be strong and immovable in defense of truth and the most vulnerable. I want to live an honorable live…empower me.
I want to live an exemplary life and to hear when You call me home, “Well done My good and faithful servant”. Show me the way!
Scripture: “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” Jeremiah 17:9
