“He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Numbers 7, Psalm 23, and Acts 27.
If I am locked in to God, He will guide me where He wants me to go.
My getting it right will bring honor and glory to Him.
How often do I let Him be the guide? Not always. So often I want to go my way and then have Him along as an after-thought. Not the way to live.
I already have plans in place for tomorrow. I work. When I drive out of my driveway tomorrow, He must already be my Guide.
I must be committed to Him. I must be begging Him for His insights on how best to manage the workday ahead.
Before I return home tomorrow, I must check my connection to Him because I want Him to guide me in my interactions with my wife.
Too often I try to go it alone. Too often I take over the role God should have. I will fail miserably at it every time I try. Why do I go there so often!
“Lord, I want You to guide me. I surrender to You. I will not be off Your Way if I am locked in to You. Prick my conscience if I lose sight of this. I desperately need You. I love You, Lord.”
We are incapable of guiding ourselves to where He wants us to be.
