Choose Him Daily to Lead You by the Hand
Isaiah 40:28-31, "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Picture a hiker standing at the base of a vast mountain range. Every decision he makes – from the direction he chooses, to each step he takes – holds significant weight. The wise hiker uses a compass to navigate the way in the wilderness. The compass remains unwavering, always pointing them in the right direction.
Our walk with God is much like that of the hiker. There are days when the path is clear, and others when it seems engulfed in fog. Daily turning to God is like checking our spiritual compass. He is our constant, unchanging guide through life's most complex terrains. When we commit to letting him direct our steps, we might find ourselves on paths we hadn't planned, but they always align with his perfect direction.
Make it a daily practice to seek God's guidance. Start your morning by reflecting on his Word, letting it guide your actions and decisions. As your day unfolds, pause to consult your "spiritual compass" – pray, reflect, and seek his wisdom in every challenge and crossroad. Consider creating a spiritual diary where you can capture moments of divine guidance or insights you gain by choosing his direction.
Father, today and every day, I seek your guidance. Help me to remember that even in uncertainty, you are my unwavering compass. Equip me to trust your direction, even when it's unexpected. In Jesus' name, Amen.
