GOD IS LEADING THE WAY
Today’s devotion assures us that when we follow God, we can never go wrong. God knows the path we take and He brings that which He has in store for us, into fruition. The songwriter wrote, “We can depend on God.” When we follow Him, we will never go wrong. Oh, yes, roadblocks, detours and stumbling blocks will come and slow us down. Nevertheless, God will lead us where He wants us to go. Proverbs 4:12 we find today’s scriptural lesson that reads:
“When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble.”
In this wisdom literature, we see the blessings that come when you walk step-by-step with God. The author speaks to his son and shares the beauty of following the Lord. The son is being taught the way of wisdom from his father’s advice. When you walk step-by-step with the Lord, you will not fail. If you run, you will not stumble. He advises us to enter not in the path of the wicked. Turn away from evil. Be wise and not to get caught up in worldly things. Follow the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind. What wonderful words of advice we can give to our children. “Straight is the way and narrow is the gate.” There are few who find it. Avoid distractions. Stay on the right road. If you encounter a detour, make a U-turn and get back on the right road.
Proverbs 4:12 (NLT)
