A SURE GUIDE!
For this God is our God forever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. —Psalm 48:14
I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will give you counsel and watch over you. —Psalm 32:8
Think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths. —Proverbs 3:5-6
Looking steadfastly on Jesus the leader and completer of faith. —Hebrews 12:2
Fellow follower of Jesus we have His promise that He will lead us and be with us to the end of the age (Matthew 28:30). He is our Guide right to the end of the race that He has marked out for us. He needs to fill our minds as we walk through life. He will guide us. Trust Him to do that.
He is our teacher and we are His learners, His disciples. We are to learn the way He wants us to go which means we need to be listening to Him constantly. His Word is our road map for life and if we are not listening to Him then it is going to be impossible to know the way He wants us to go.
Years ago when we still used those hard copy road maps of states I was riding along with a friend to speak at a church in an abutting state. We had never been there and so he kept his eye on the map while I drove. We did the same thing on the way back home. Well, we were talking away until I looked around and said, “Hey, I don’t remember any of these surroundings. Did we miss a turn?” Sure enough when my navigator checked the map we drove a half hour past a turn-off. We were so distracted by conversing that we missed our turn.
If we are so distracted that we are not checking with our Guide regularly then we could miss a turn He desires us to take. If that happens it is good to get our Road Map out and listen to how He is directing us and get back on the right road.
Are you on the right road? Are you listening to the right Guide? May it be so!
Dear Father, may I regularly, consistently, fervently be listening to You and follow You wherever You want me to go and do whatever You desire me to do. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8Sx_U0Ztr8
