God Never Leads Us Astray!

Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness . . . make your way straight before my face. (Psalm 5:8) 

God's voice isn't all that difficult to hear. In fact, you almost have to be closing your eyes and stopping your ears to miss it. He sometimes shouts through our pain, whispers to us while we're relaxing on vacation, occasionally He sings to us in a song, and warns us through the sixty-six books of His written Word. It's right there, ink on paper. Count on it---that book will never lead you astray. 

In addition to His unfailing source of wisdom, He has given you wise counselors, friends, acquaintances, parents, teachers, and mentors who have earned your love and respect through long years. Screen what you believe to be the will of God through their thoughts, their perspectives. Does your conviction about the direction you're headed grow, or are you seeing lots of red flags and caution signs? Before you undertake a major life-direction change, be very careful that it is God's voice, that it is God's call you are hearing. 

Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication 

All of us can use some guidance. Let's face it, without God, we are hopelessly lost. When confronted with uncertain times, God's grace will carry us through and will sustain us. God will never lead us astray. God is omnipresent. 

God's omnipresence enables us, as His children, to be able to tap into His power and confidently trust that God's leading is the only true and faithful way to go. God knows very well what will happen to our lives before we ever see it coming and materializing in our lives. 

Is there anyone else you would prefer to lead the way in your life? Knowing very well that God is the One doing the leading in my life is both very comforting and assuring. During times that are smooth and comfortable, it's easy to become complacent and not render the credit that is due to God bringing you to that place of comfort and stability. It is only during uncertain times when the reality of life without God's leading becomes evident and our need for His presence, His power, and His direction becomes a desperate need. Do you have a desperate need for God's direction and leading? Are you tired of being led astray by the ways of this world? My dear friend, God is waiting for you with arms open wide. All you have to do is ask.

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
