FOLLOW HIS GUIDELINES
God has given us good instruction for life. We have a blueprint for holy and righteous living. However, we must follow His instruction and be willing to follow His guidance in faith. He knows the way we take and we can trust Him as we follow Him. Instead of following Him, far too often we take our own paths. Unfortunately, they are often the wrong paths. There is a blessing when we follow His guidance. Our scripture reference for this devotion is Proverbs 1:23, and reads in this manner:
“If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.”
The writer of this wisdom literature speaks clearly about the blessings that come when we follow His guidance. The Lord will pour out His Spirit upon us, but we must be willing to turn to Him. The Word says, If you but turn. We must be intentional. He will guide and lead us. His Word will be made known unto us. In this chapter, you will see the blessings of following His guidance, as well as a warning for neglecting His appeal to follow. Prayerfully, you are following Him today and are committed to doing so for the rest of your life.
Proverbs 1:23 (ESV)
