“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with my eye” (Psalm 32:8).Text — Psalm 32:7-11
S. D. Gordon says, “It is safe to trust God’s methods, and to go by His clock.” The children of Israel left Egypt for Canaan and depended on God absolutely to guide them. First, God chose not to lead them through the country of the Philistines so that they would not see war and turn back to Egypt. Second, He made available the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night which were not only for their safety but to guide them on the way they should follow. They moved or rested when and where the pillar of cloud or fire moved or rested (Exodus 13:17, 21, 22).
The case of Israel’s divine guidance demonstrates God’s faithfulness in fulfilling His promise to guide His people. He is ever willing to help His children if they involve Him in all their decisions. Obedience or adherence to the leading of the Holy Spirit will provide the needed help to avoid needless misfortunes and heartbreaks. Dear youth, allow God to guide you in all the affairs of your life for optimal outcomes spiritually, academically and socially.
Allow God to guide you
Wherever He leads I will go!
