God has a plan! Knowing our human weaknesses, he promises us “unfailing love” if we trust in him. His expectation is that we try to be diligent in following his commands. He forgives our failures so we can “rejoice, be glad, and sing” (vs 11).
“Oh that the Lord would guide my ways. To keep his statutes still
“Oh that my God would grant me grace. To know and do His will!” (ELW 772)
Let us pray. Dear Lord: Sometimes it is hard to remember to come to you, and easy to be stubborn in our unfaithful ways, rather than consulting you. Thank you for loving us when we are hard to love. Inspire and direct us to follow your Word. “Thy will be done”. Amen.
