[2]  I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat. [3]  No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others. [4]  Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. [5]  Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. Psalm 25:2-5 (NLT)

My eyes opened, and my heart was engulfed with the sense of “newness” this morning. Sipping my coffee and writing in my prayer journal, I realized it was the first day of April. The thought of a fresh month full of blank pages to write a new story and to seek the glory of God has arrived.

In my journal, I penned the following words, “Today begins a new month, and I desire to dedicate this month to seeking a closer walk with You [God].” After spending some time in prayer, I turned to my devotions from Andrew Murray’s Waiting on God and found some very encouraging words about seeking God. Concerning Psalm 25, Murray writes,

The psalm has at all times been a very peculiar one, because of its reiterated expression of the felt need of the Divine teaching, and of the childlike confidence that that teaching would be given. Study the psalm until your heart is filled with the two thoughts—the absolute need, the absolute certainty of divine guidance.

We, as believers, have a promise that IF we’re looking for Him, God will be found! So, the month of April is, for me, a time to seek a more intimate relation with my God.  HE has promised to reveal the way!

Would you like to join me on this April journey? You can and ain’t fooling either! Take this month to move closer to God. He is waiting. Please feel free to like, share, and comment.
