As I drove the kids to school this morning I was blinded by the sun. I had sunglasses on. My visor was down. The sun was powerful. My actions were a direct response to it’s presence.

I thought “what is the Lord trying to show me?”

I came home and opened the Scripture to Psalm 31:16: “Make thy face to shine upon thy servant.” That’s what David asked of the Lord.

Why would David pray something like that?

Then the Lord showed me–my every move this morning was made based upon the presence of the sun. What if the presence of the Lord shone that brightly upon me? What if I were so close to the Son that I wouldn’t be able to make a decision without taking Him into consideration?

David was a wise man to seek God’s presence in his life. We should learn from him.
