“O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” Jeremiah 10:23Text — Jeremiah 10:21-24
David was a man who loved God very much. However, there were occasions where he failed because he did not ask God for direction before taking decisions. One of these such occasion was when he instructed his servant to organize a census (numbering) for Israel. God was not happy about David’s action and therefore punished him and the children of Israel.
Man was created with the power to make choices in life, but God expects everyone; particularly believers to seek His guidance before taking any decision about anything in life.
Human beings are limited but God is unlimited, He sees and knows all things. God is Omniscient because He is All-Knowing. There are many things you don’t know; God knows all things about you from beginning to end.
Children of God should endeavor to seek direction from God in all matters of life. You do not own yourself; God owns you. There is danger in conducting one’s life without the direction of God. Therefore, seek divine guidance in all you do, like the choice of friends, school, career, academics, etc. Be prayerful, read your Bible every day and meditate on its words, be determined to obey God’s word.
