He wants to guide us. Will we let Him?

“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.
