Your Word is My Compass
Chosen by God!
“Show me how you work, God; school me in Your ways. Take me by the hand; lead me down the path of truth. You are my Savior, aren’t you?”
What better teacher than our Abba, Father? He wants to tell us things and show us things. Some things we will never know unless we spend time in His Word.
“Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.” (Jeremiah 33:3 AMP)
He wants us to know how He works so we can be in sync with Him. I know there are times when I just want my heavenly Daddy to take me by the hand and lead me down the path of truth. Well, that’s exactly what His Word does. It’s a road map giving us clear directions on what to do and how to do it. It’s a blueprint of truth.
Think of the Bible as our navigational system, showing us how to get to our purpose, step by step, all laid out for us. All we have to do is read it and follow His instructions. Should we make a mistake, He doesn’t just leave us there, lost and alone! He guides us back to the right path. His navigational system is free. Everything we need is right there in His Word. All we have to do is spend time in His Word and in His Presence. We must hide His Word in our hearts so the Holy Spirit can bring it to our remembrance.
Just to make sure we stay on the right path, His Word has provision for that. We can confidently pray His Word:
"Barricade the road that goes Nowhere; grace me with your clear revelation. I choose the true road to Somewhere, I post your road signs at every curve and corner. I grasp and cling to whatever you tell me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course you lay out for me if you’ll just show me how." (Psalm 119:29-32 MSG)
