A Guide All The Way !!!!!!

A Guide All The Way !!!!!!

He will be my guide even unto death. (Psalm 48:14)

We need a guide. Sometimes we would give all that we have to be told exactly what to do and where to turn. We are willing to do right, but we do not know which one of two roads we are to follow. Oh, for a guide!

The Lord our God condescends to serve us as guide. He knows the way and will pilot us along it till we reach our journey’s end in peace. Surely we do not desire more infallible direction. Let us place ourselves absolutely under His guidance, and we shall never miss our way. Let us make Him our God, and we shall find Him our guide. If we follow His law we shall not miss the right road of life, provided we first learn to lean upon Him in every step that we take.

Our comfort is that as He is our God forever and ever, He will never cease to be with us as our guide. “Even unto death” will He lead us, and then we shall dwell with Him eternally and go no more out forever. This promise of divine guidance involves lifelong security: salvation at once, guidance unto our last hour, and then endless blessedness. Should not each one seek this in youth, rejoice in it in middle life, and repose in it in old age? This day let us look up for guidance before we trust ourselves out-of-doors.

    I accompanied my son and his class to a Christian outdoor camp several years ago. One of the classes was “orienteering.” I had never learned to use a compass and I loved it! The best part was when the counselor drew an analogy between God and a compass. Just as the location device will show us the way when we are lost or unsure of the direction to take, God will always lead us in the right direction! Great post, as always! Have a wonderful day, Cate

    “We are willing to do right, but we do not know which one of two roads we are to follow. Oh, for a guide!” This reminds me of Robert Frost’s poem, The Road Less Traveled. Sometimes, that narrow path, the “right road of life,” is not the one we would naturally choose. But as we walk with our Guide hand in hand, it becomes the one of comfort and peace because He is with us every step. And that makes all the difference.

      Yes Susan, that we would make it so easy as following the pillar of cloud and fire as the children of Israel had to follow. We have more but it’s by faith. Have a great day today! Enjoy the day.😀
