“Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.” (Psalm 25:4)
Do you ever feel like you’re going in circles and not making any progress? At least not the kind of progress you were expecting.
Is the constant insanity of our world pulling you in a million different directions, causing you to question if you’re even headed in the right direction?
If you’re like me, and you have dreams and made the plans, but life and all its crazyness makes you feel like you’re just surviving instead of living out those dreams.
To many choices.
There are days I’ve felt like one foot was chained to a bolder, while my other foot is headed in every direction. Expending a lot of energy and mental fatigue, but going nowhere. Can you relate?
Wouldn’t it be awesome to wake up every morning and be assured you’re on the right path towards your dreams and goals? To know with certainty that you’re headed in the right direction? To feel confident with each step, without constantly questioning yourself?
Too many times I’ve second-guessed a decision I was confident about. I want so desperately to follow God’s will that I’ll pray, but then feel uncertain, not wanting to make a wrong move. I wonder: Maybe this isn’t what I’m supposed to be doing. Maybe this isn’t part of God’s plan for my life.
As I’ve wrestled with indecision and insecurity, I’ve sought God’s Word for help. A few months ago, I found a golden truth in the Bible. It addresses our desire for guidance and shows us what to do when we need clear direction.
King David composed these words in a beautiful psalm, tucked within the pages of the Old Testament:
“Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you”(Psalm 25:5)
These verses reveal David’s humble and teachable heart. He wanted to be guided by God and led by His truth. David knew God was his Savior and placed all his hope in the One who created the right path for him.
We can find the answers to David’s request for guidance only a few short passages away. Promises we can claim for our own lives:
“The LORD is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way. The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands” (Psalm 25:8-10)
Based on these verses, when our hearts are humble and truly seeking God’s will, we can be confident of this:
1. God will always show us what is right for us.
2. When we get sidetracked, God will direct us back to the right path.
3. We are not alone. God leads and teaches us along the way.
4. God leads those who obey Him with unfailing love and faithfulness.
“The LORD says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” (Psalm 32:8)
“Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
If you’re unsure about some things in your life, don’t wait another day to figure it out on your own. Ensure your heart is in the right place of humility, and then ask God to help you. Once you’ve asked, trust that God is directing you.
“Where I go today, I pray it be only in the path You have directed for me.”
Heavenly Father, help me find my way to You for direction in my life. Remind me that the world will never be able to offer what my soul deeply longs for, nor does it hold my future, but You certainly do. No matter what comes my way and no matter where You lead me, I pray that my eyes will only be focused on You. You are my Rock and my Stay. Please, God, guide me today for I don’t know what the day may hold, but I do know that if I seek You, you will guide my way. Thank You for leading my every step. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
