Have you been wandering aimlessly alone. Today, I encourage you to know the truth that God desires to guide and counsel you. Because He cares about the details of your life, seek His Word and follow the path He has set before you. Set aside a time each day to read a portion of God’s Word and journal about what you read. Journaling will help you map out God’s course for your life.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” Psalm 32:8
Life is full of dead ends and confusing directions that can lead us off course. From time to time we can get lost spiritually if we don’t look to God as our source for answers and guidance. When it happens to us, there are certain signs. Life seems dull, scary, uneventful and without purpose or clear direction.
Sadness sets in and our days look lonely, cold and dark. We lose the confidence in decision-making, too. Without seeking clear directions from God, it’s so easy to become confused about which way to turn. Eventually we can start to feel like we are lost.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can turn to God for help. In today’s verse, God makes this promise to each and everyone of us. We don’t have to go it alone as if we’re feeling our way through the darkness. God is there to light our path.
No matter how determined we are about staying the course, without God’s direction we’ll end up in a place we never intended to go. Whenever we need direction — whether it’s raising a strong-willed child, changing jobs or dealing with a difficult relationship — God will faithfully provide the counsel we need. And we can find God’s counsel in His Word, through prayer and by relying on the Holy Spirit to pave the way before us. Practicing these principles is the only way we can be sure of reaching our destination.
It’s true. There will be obstacles along life’s way and, at times, the path we take will feel unknown, but God wants to guide, equip and lead us each day as we learn to depend more and more on Him.
Have a wonderful day as you allow God to instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. Love to you all.
