Daily D – Matthew 6:13
And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
MATTHEW 6:13 (CSB)
Temptation is everywhere. We hear it on the radio. We see it on television. We read it in books. We experience it as we journey through our days. How can we find freedom from sin and deliverance from temptation? We ask Jesus to walk with us at all times in all circumstances.
Invite Jesus into your every thought right now. Ask him to halt your steps when you begin moving in the wrong direction.
Invite Jesus to direct your steps. Ask him to keep you on the right path. When you find yourself wandering off the right path, ask him to redirect you.
Ask Jesus to lead you step by step, thought by thought, word by word, moment by moment. When you do not know which way to go, ask him to show you the way. When you do not know what to think, ask him for wisdom. When you do not know what to do, ask him for knowledge and understanding.
We are about as alone in life as we want to be. Jesus wants to guide us in all things at all times. When Jesus leads, temptations are not so alluring. When Jesus leads, we are safe from the evil one. When Jesus leads, we get where we need to go when we need to get there.
The Jesus path is filled with adventure and purpose. His path always leads to meaning and fulfillment. His path is transformational.
“Where do you want to go today,” an old computer commercial asked.
I will go wherever Jesus leads.
Our Father, show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Lead me step by step, thought by thought, word by word, moment by moment. Amen.

Jeremiah 35:12-14 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the Lord. ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me.”
Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.
Jeremiah 23:20-22 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
