God Direct My Path
Reading for the Day:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light for my path.”
~ Psalm 119: 105
Oftentimes, God’s will is a mystery. It can be frustrated, when we feel like we’re left wondering what He wants us to do. Sometimes we feel like we’re guessing, and then second-guessing ourselves. It is in these in-between times, when we’re not sure where we’re being led, that we must lean on faith the most.
This faith can be strengthened by reading the Bible. God’s Word will direct our paths, even if it feels like nothing’s happening. We might read the Bible ten days in a row and feel like we’re not gleaning anything that can be applied to what’s happening in our lives at that moment, but then on the eleventh day, we encounter a bombshell verse that makes everything clear.
That is one reason why it is so important to read the Bible prayerfully. We need to ask God to show us what He wants us to see in His word, to ask Him to guide us with His Scripture.
We also need to ask Him to let us know (We can request that He do it gently) when we’ve taken a wrong turn. Sometimes we misinterpret His direction, or we listen to our own voices instead of His. It is at these times, that we most need His guidance, but it is at these times that we might be the most resistant to accepting it.
Prayer Suggestion: “Dear God, Please direct my path in every way. Please show me Your will through Your Word and in my life. And if I am on the wrong path, or about to make a wrong turn, please show me the right way.”
