Let Me Direct Your Life
During the daytime, the Lord was in the cloud, leading us in the right direction and showing us where to camp. And at night, he was there in the fire. – Deuteronomy 1:33 (CEV)
I had rescued the Israelite’s out of slavery. I had parted the Red Sea for them. I had displayed miracle after miracle for them. I was even leading them through the dessert by a cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night. Despite these obvious signs and wonders they doubted. They grumbled about the direction they were headed. Because of their unbelief they were not allowed to enter the promised land. Instead it was their children who inherited all the good I had planned for them.
I tell you this because I have a promised land in store for you too. I have good things planned for you.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT)
If you trust in me, I will lead you and guide you. If you follow the direction I want you to travel in you’ll find it much more rewarding than traveling through life on your own.
My promise for you is an abundant life (John 10:10.) Not necessarily an abundance of “stuff”, but an abundance of what really matters in life- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
When you let me direct your steps it will change your life! It takes one simple prayer: “Father God, come into my life. Lead me and guide me. Show me t he way you’d have me go and remove any obstacles that may be in my way. Amen.”
Pray this every morning. Seek my guidance before you begin your day. Come to me when you have a decision to make. And I will lead you through every hardship and difficulty to your own promised land.
