“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.” ~ Psalm 25:4-5
I love how David writes show me the right path. First off he is saying show me the right path God. What he is saying is when we need guidance in our lives we should say God show me the right path 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, and as David wrote show me the right path O Lord. Once again my brothers and sisters be encouraged and seek God for His guidance.
Next David continues with teach me. It is not enough that we know His ways, but that He instructs us. How does He do that? He instructs us by His Word. Friends God is our schoolmaster. He teaches us daily and we need to be glad to learn daily. We must realize that we don’t ever get to a point where we have it figured out and can say we can walk on our own. Instead we need to know that everyday we depend on God to help us get through by leading us. As you can see the end of verse 4 and the beginning of verse 5 link together. They link together in that how He leads us and teaches us is in His truth which is His Word.
Friends we can’t rely on our mind or our heart to guide us. One reason is our heart is deceitful above all things (Jeremiah 17:9). We can’t rely on our mind to lead for there is a way that seems right to man and that leads to death (Proverbs 14:12). So it is quite obvious we must be lead by God’s Word and use His Word to lead our hearts and minds as well.
As Christians we must totally rely on God to guide us. For this guidance we need to be lead by His Word which is the truth just as David wrote lead me in your truth. Friends when you are approaching big decisions seek God’s face and if it takes all day for a response wait. Don’t just give God 5 minutes or a few seconds, wait till you hear from God. Just as David wrote He is the one who gave us our salvation and why is it we can’t wait? Why can’t we just wait to hear from Him? Shouldn’t waiting on a response from God be important to us and vital as the food we eat? As it is written man can not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from God. ~Deuteronomy 8:3
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
