In His presence

Psalms 43
3 Give me your lantern and compass,
give me a map,
So I can find my way to the sacred mountain,
to the place of your presence,
4 To enter the place of worship,
meet my exuberant God,
Sing my thanks with a harp,
magnificent God, my God.

Sometimes it's hard to see where we're supposed to go with our lives.  "Ok, I believe in You God, so now what do I do?"  In verse 3 David is asking for a lantern, compass and map.  Sometimes I ask for a neon sign that reads "Do this!"  But the way to find direction is in the place of His presence.  It's in Bible study and prayer.  I love to sing to the Lord in worship- it's like being before His throne, as much as is possible in this world.  Heaven must be awesome.  But today I need to work out my career.  I have a lot of ideas but will need God's lantern, compass and map to actually get there.  Jesus is all these things and more:
John 14:6-7
6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."
We just need to come into His presence.  Guide me Father in the work You have for me today.
