Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Ps 119:105
Some months ago, I was on my way to a client's house for business. This was my first time going to her house using the public transport.
When I highlighted from the bus, there were several turns I had to take before getting to my destination.
I turned on my GPS and put in my current location and my destination. The GPS began directing my every move. Each time I walked in the wrong direction, it let me know I was in the wrong direction and so I would turn and start walking in the right direction keeping my eyes on the GPS.
Even though I was a little late, I arrived at my destnation.
The Lord says to us "And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you." Joel 2:25
We may feel like we have lost time or wandered in the wrong direction for so long but when we sincerely repent from our hearts and return to the Word, we will reach the heights God has destined for us.
As I sat in the bus returning back home, I remembered the verse "thy word is a lamp unto my feet..." I finally understood what David wrote.
The Word of God for each child of God is our GPS and we have the Holy Spirit to guide our every move.
Remember what the Lord told Joshua when it was time to take over leadership from Moses "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Josh. 1:8
The Lord calls Himself our Good Shephard John 10:11.
Every time we feel lost or confused in life, let's always turn to the Word and let Him guide our every step, He is more than willingly to lead us beside still waters and restore our souls.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I ask that you always lead and guide me in the path you have marked out for me to walk in. Help me to always hear my Shephard's voice and follow Him daily in Jesus Name. Amen.
