“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye. (Psalm 32:8).
God has promised “My son, my daughter, I will hold your hands and guide you. My presence will go with thee. And I will give you rest” (Exodus 33:14). “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5).
What was the experience of Isaiah? “The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of the learned that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear to hear as the learned (Isaiah 50:4). Dear children of God sit in the presence of God and ask “God, Speak, for your servant hears. Advice me God over how should I go ahead.” “Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; on you, I wait all the day” (Psalm 25:5).
“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel “I am the Lord your God who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go” (Isaiah 48:17). Yes. He will definitely make you learn the useful things; teach you; will lead you with love.
David’s faith was “Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go”. “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever” (Psalm 23:6).
Even in the midst of hundreds of children, a mother will easily identify her own with the mere voice of crying. She recognises her own children from the group easily. How? It is the blood relationship. Similarly, if you are in good fellowship with God, your ears will hear his whispering voice. At once, you will rejoice that it was the voice of your beloved.
God carries his children just as the hen carries its chickens. He carries you on his shoulders on which He had carried the cross just as the shepherd carries the lamb. The matured children of God will not walk based on vision but will walk on faith.
A Christian brother worked in a company truthfully and honestly. But he was removed from the job after being accused falsely. But God said to him not to be afraid and He would lead him always. In a few days, that brother received a job abroad with a high salary. Peace came back to him. Same God will lead you too.
To meditate: “For this is God, our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to death” (Psalm 48:14)
