Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways . Over the next 26 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day six with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a guided path.
Walk a Guided Path
“When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life.”
Proverbs 6:22-23 (NIV)
Have you ever been lost? How did you get “unlost”? Have you ever visited a place only to discover later that you had missed some of the best parts of that location because you didn’t know where they were? What could you have done to facilitate a more complete visit? How do you feel when someone asks you for tips on how to best enjoy something that you have already experienced? Does that feeling change if you find out they didn’t follow any of the advice you had given? Why?
Many times we miss out on the best part of our journey because we fail to look to God as our guide in everything. God says that His words and commands should be a guide to our path in every area of our life. As you pray, ask God to help you follow His instructions for the path you should be walking. Pray that the godly teaching of right and wrong would guide you into wise decisions about how you will live. Pray for the courage and humility to admit to God that you are lost and ask Him to guide you. Pray that the way you live your life would guide others to Christ.
