“Show me the right path O Lord, point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me. for you are the God who saves me, All day long I put my hope in you.” Psalm 25:4-5
In my quiet time I was led to mediate on this wonderful promise. Gosh it’s so encouraging and such a great reminder that God is the only one who can truly guide us. But as believers we must seek His guidance and direction in all things. Another words when we need guidance in our lives we should say God show me Your way in how I should approach this. Too often we we want to take our approach to how we should handle a situation and then want God to fix our mess. Doesn’t that just seem a little backwards? Now granted we may get in situations and need His help, but first and foremost we need to be seeking His guidance, His directions. So start each day by praying, asking God to give you a clear understanding of each moment. Then let the Lord be your guide in all that you do. He will never lead you astray and will always be with you every step of the way.
Today see yourself coming to a crossroad. You are not sure which way to go. Fear begins to grip your hear. Confusion sets in and you do not know what to do. In desperation you cry out to God and He hears you. He guides you and you sense a relief. As you follow His direction you begin to feel peace. God is in control and you are happy to let Him lead. You affirm, “I let God direct my path!”
