Cause me to come

Our daily devotion this morning was Jesus’ claim, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6 NIV)

He said to me, “I am the way, walk in it. I am the truth, believe it. I am the life, live it.”

For some reason the song, Cause me to come to thy river, O Lord, came to my mind. I thought, I cannot do this, only God can cause me to come, to walk in the way, to believe the truth, to live the life.

Cause me to come to Thy river O Lord
Cause me to come to Thy river O Lord
Cause me to come to Thy river O Lord
Cause me to come
Cause me to drink
Cause me to live.

Cause me to drink from Thy river O Lord
Cause me to drink from Thy river O Lord
Cause me to drink from Thy river O Lord
Cause me to come
Cause me to drink
Cause me to live.

Cause me to live by Thy river O Lord
Cause me to live by Thy river O Lord
Cause me to live by Thy river O Lord
Cause me to come
Cause me to drink
Cause me to live.

The first verse spoke to me of the way, the way to the river of life. Christ is the way, there is no other path. Drinking the pure water talks to me of truth. The water is not polluted by this world’s lies and distortions. The third verse speaks of life, of living.

I have my own cause me prayers.

Lord, cause me to know Your will and to follow it. Cause me to hear Your voice and obey it. Cause me to know Your love and rest in it. Amen.
