Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
I can honestly say that I received fresh manna today. My favorite verse in this chapter has been verse 3 about a tree firmly planted near life giving water. But verse 6 is the strength of the whole Psalm. The Lord knows the way or journey of the righteous. You see the verb to know is the same root Hebrew word called Yada. It means an intimate personal experiential knowledge. Adam knew Eve. Their sexual intimacy is so close that it is expressed as the two becoming one. One emotionally, physically, closeness at the deepest part of a persons soul. This is the same root verb that God says that He knows about our journey. We are NOT walking alone.
Father God, because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ you walking in my journey daily. You don’t just know about me from a distance, but through the ministry of the Holy Spirit you encourage me and carry weight of the world that causes me to become discouraged.
Father, my heart is overwhelmed by your love. That you the creator of all things would want to walk with me daily. Father, forgive me when I feel like you are distant and unconcerned with my stuff, my issues, or my struggles.
Give me ears to hear your voice. God I want to know you, like you desire to know me. I want to walk in the path that you have designed for me. Knowing that as I walk that path, you will receive all the honor that you deserve. I pray all of these things in Jesus name
