Dear Blessed Lord Jesus, good morning. I Love You, thank You, Praise You and give You all the Honor and Glory for this new day. I thank You and praise You for the lessons I can learn from the Old Testament characters and teachings of You that come through them. I humbly desire to walk in Your ways and to live in spirit and truth. Holy Spirit help me to abide in Jesus Christ, to love as He loved, and in all things to speak, “Thy will not mine be done.” Lord Jesus, I long to live by faith alone, to trust Your Word wholeheartedly, to be Yeilding to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit help me to follow in the footsteps of the Lord Jesus Christ Who did only those things that were good and righteous in Your eyes. May I die to self and live for Christ, from this day forward in His Precious Name Amen.

When the time drew near for David to die, he gave a charge to Solomon his son. “I am about to go the way of all the earth,” he said. “So be strong, act like a man, and observe what the Lord your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go and that the Lord may keep his promise to me: ‘If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart and soul, you will never fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.’
