Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (NIV) Isaiah 30:21
Not too long ago I was in an unfamiliar area of the country, traveling from one city to another. It seemed like the directions were instructing me to turn onto new roads about every 5 minutes. I had a couple of good maps, but most of the roads were 2 lanes in a mountainous area. Needless to say, I had to pay very close attention to what I was doing so that I did not make a wrong turn and end up lost.
Sometimes in life, we feel like we are on a circuitous route, unsure of every turn we take. At times the decisions we make can have long term effects on our lives and the lives of those around us. Other times the decisions that we face are choosing between what is good and what is best. And although we do not have detailed road maps for life, we do have God’s Word and His Spirit to guide us.
Are you facing decisions today? Who are you relying on for the answers? your own gut instinct? your friend’s advice? whatever the circumstances dictate? Or are you relying on the One who knows the future to direct you? I don’t know about you, but I feel safest listening to the true Guide!
