DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Tuesday, June 23, 2015
God describes some people as being like horses or mules that have to be controlled by bits and bridles. Rather than letting God guide them step by step, they stubbornly leave God only on option. God longs to guide us with love and wisdom. He offers to teach us the best way to go. Accept the advice written in God’s Word, and don’t let your stubbornness keep you from obeying God. (NLT)
Psalm 32:6-10 – Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment. For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory.
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.”
Many sorrows come to the wicked, but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the Lord.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. – Psalm 32:8 (NIV)
Gerald McCann (Western Cape, South Africa) titled his story “PATH MARKERS;” here is a portion of Gerald’s story:
“. . . Walking with God through our daily lives is similar to hiking a well-marked trail. God has promised to guide us and show the way at each important new intersection. . . . These signs may appear in the form of scripture, spiritual songs, words from a friend, or part of a sermon. Even life’s circumstances – good or bad – can play a part in revealing signs from God.”
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – God is our best possible guide through life.
Prayer: Dear Lord, open our eyes that we may see your guidance on our trail and lead others to a better understanding of you. Amen.
Prayer Focus: SOMEONE STRUGGLING WITH A DECISION
