“I WILL INSTRUCT YOU AND TEACH YOU IN THE WAY YOU SHOULD GO: I WILL GUIDE YOU WITH MY EYE”
I travel a lot and often find I need to use GPS to find the place I’m going. When I get my rental car, I plug in the address on my phone, and away I go. One morning I was on my way to a church in Northern Colorado. I was directed into the countryside by the navigational system. It seemed to me I was out in the middle of nowhere. I thought well, certainly there will be a major road ahead. Suddenly, the monotone voice on the map said “turn in 1.2 miles” then as I got closer it said in 900 feet turn left. The road was a “cow path” into nowhere! Something got messed up and then I called the pastor for directions. After laughing at me- because I was so far off the beaten path, I finally did get to the church.
As a believer, I know God will not steer me in the wrong direction. Even though I don’t know the way ahead, I trust that He knows. When He says go here, I go. He’s promises you and me to bring us to the place He wants us. There is no uncertainty with Him. When He says “I will” I know with confidence that He will guide with 100% accuracy. His promises are tried and true.
These days we are living in are filled with potholes, wrong directions, and complete lies. Jesus says: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”. What a joy to follow the One who has proven Himself to us many times. When we can’t see what’s ahead, continue to trust in Him who said: “I will guide you with My eye”.
