Let God Be Our Guide
"For this is God, Our God forever and ever; He will be our Guide even to death."
In our world today there are different ways to get us to our destinations. We can input our destinations into our smart phones or we can use a map and plan our route that way. These things may help us get to where we are going but they cannot help us in the Spiritual realm.
The way of our God is by Faith in Jesus as we read the Bible. All through Scripture, we can see that God promises us that He will be our Guide and He will be our protector. What God says in His Word will come to pass. Our part is to follow Him. That is the difficult part for us at times.
When we say we are going to follow the Lord, it means that we don't do what we want, but that we involve Jesus in our decision-making process. Faith will work when we choose to do what Jesus wants of us and not do what we think is correct.
God will always guide and protect us when we yield to Him. This yielding to Him just doesn't happen overnight. It is a process of being in prayer and in studying the Bible.
We must remember that our God is in control of all things. There will be times when we may not understand His ways, but this is where faith comes into our hearts.
Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”
Lastly, we must trust in the Lord Jesus. To gain victory means we must put our trust in the Lord in all things.
Psalm 37:3-4 "Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart."
We can do all these things, but it only comes with a diligent prayer life and the study of God's Word. Amen
