I am very thankful for my GPS systems. Understanding directions is not a difficult task but having a personal guide in the car sure makes things a lot easier and helps to take the stress out of travel. The same is said for our spiritual life. We know that we are not a tourist looking at the sights of this world. Instead, we are pilgrims in a perilous land. To make it out alive will take the help of a personal guide. The Lord is mine, and He is faithful.
“For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will our guide even unto death.” – Psalm 48:14
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” – Proverbs 3:6
“And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in the paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.” – Isaiah 42:16
The Lord is an ever-abiding companion in our pilgrimage from this life to the next. If we trust in Him through His Son, Jesus, His Holy Spirit will strengthen us and give us moment-by-moment direction. We won’t understand why we are being led in certain directions at times. However, we have faith that God sees down the road much farther ahead then what we can in our limited ability.
Do you trust your guide?
