By My Side

I love the picture of having someone to help that comes along side me to help me. I believe that in marriage, spouses are to help one another along the journey of life. I like the picture about coming along side the Lord to do what it is He’s called me to do.  King David speaks to this in Psalm 110. Check this out…

1 The Lord said to my Lord,
    “Sit by me at my right side
       until I put your enemies under your control.”
 2 The Lord will enlarge your kingdom beyond Jerusalem,
       and you will rule over your enemies.
 3 Your people will join you on your day of battle.
       You have been dressed in holiness from birth;
       you have the freshness of a child.
 4 The Lord has made a promise
       and will not change his mind.
    He said, “You are a priest forever,
       a priest like Melchizedek.” (Psalm 110:1-4 NCV)

Of all the people I want to come along side to help me, I want the Lord. He is the most powerful of allies. He has a plan. He has the power to implement the plan. He can make more of my life than I could ever dream. I believe it’s my role to come along side Him and go with His plan.  I sometimes try to go my own way and invite Him in to my plans. That is exactly opposite as to how it should work. He will lead if I let Him. I must trust Him with today, tomorrow and the rest of my life here on earth.

When I’m in His will and He and I are side by side, there’s not better place on earth to be!
