You Have a Guide

I grew up about an hour from the beach in Southern California. Unless you know that you are going to the beach, it just feels like you are stuck in the worst freeway traffic of your life. Standstill traffic with smog.

But then you turn a corner and there it is- the sand, the waves, the Southern California beach.

You don’t know what God has for you around the corner, my friend.

Sometimes, you can’t even guess.

The way there may not be pretty or easy but Jesus is faithful to complete what he has started.

Keep going.

“Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭25:4‬ ‭NLT‬

There is more to see, more to do and it is going to be breathtaking.

Humbly

  

Pride will make you blind to see where God wants to lead you.

He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. (‭Psalm‬ ‭25‬:‭9‬ NIV)

If you are asking for direction, for clarity and for God to be your guide- begin by cutting off your pride at the knees. Pride loves to rise up with shoulds, coulds and vows to protect yourself.

When pride fills your vision,it is hard to see God’s vison for your life.

Begin humbly.

Don’t ask God to guide you in the way you want to go but in the way He does.

God is more than a just a guide, He is a teacher. He wants to teach you His way of living. His way of loving. His way of being.

He will show you the path to take but truthfully, how you walk is as important (maybe more) than where you walk.

Need direction?

Begin humbly and trust Jesus to show how to live as you follow His direction on where to go.
