The Guidance of God

Exodus 13:20-22
After leaving Succoth they camped at Etham on the edge of the desert.  By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.  Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.

God was everything that Israel needed in the desert.  By day He was a pillar of cloud to shield them from the desert sun.  By night He was a pillar of blazing fire to warm them in the cold night air.  But even more than that – night or day – they could see God clearly and follow the path He was marking out for them.

God will go before us in our lives as well, if we let Him.  Our job is to look for the signs of His guidance.  He wants to make the path clear before us.  Even when we go through dark times – when it seems that we can’t go on, He will make a way for us to come through victoriously.

As drivers, many of us put our complete trust in the GPS receiver on our dashboards.  We will turn any direction it tells us to go.  If only we would follow God’s Word the same way, we would have a life that was truly worth living.

Turn your path over to God today.  Let Him be your daily guide.  Enter into the freedom that comes from knowing that the road ahead has already been mapped out.  Commit yourself to following after the only true Guide of our souls.

GPS Navigation

Isaiah 30:21
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

About a year ago, I bought my wife a GPS unit to help her get around.  It is amazing to think that there are satellites circling the earth that can pinpoint your location to within a couple of feet.

She used to always call me when she was lost and needing directions.  Now, by using the unit, she always knows where she is and how to get where she is going to.  She even knows how long it will take to get there.

It is comforting to know that thousands of years before this technology was developed, God was already guiding His people.  The Holy Spirit is more accurate than any GPS unit.  He can keep us on track throughout all the twists and turns of life.

There is one requirement, however.  With a GPS unit, you have to look at it from time to time if it is going to benefit you.  It is the same with the Holy Spirit.  He wants to be your guide.  But if you never spend time with Him, you will never hear the words of direction you need to navigate through life.

Spend some time today with the best guide in existence.  Quiet your heart in the Lord’s presence.  Let His voice become plain to you.  Listen for the guidance you need for the road ahead.  Then rejoice in Him for the Holy Spirit who is always with you.
