Lord, I want only to follow you. Don’t let my get ahead of your timing for what you have me do. Don’t let me say things before asking your will. Don’t let me take steps before I ask your guidance. You plan my walk. You decide the turns I’m to take. You make the path smooth. I run amuck when I don’t put you before me. Keep me on the right track in your precious name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Then David inquired of the Lord again. And the Lord answered him, ‘Arise, go down to Keilah, for I will give the Philistines into your hand.’ And David and his men went to Keilah and fought with the Philistines and brought away their livestock and struck them with a great blow. So David saved the inhabitants of Keilah.” (1 Samuel 23: 4-5 ESV)
