For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. Psalm 48:14
Walking down a path or through a museum, people are often offered a guide to lead them. This can be with a pamphlet or someone actually leading them. This is to give them the best experience of what they will see and do.
Some people do not like to be guided. They feel as though they can find their own way through anything and everything. They ignore what others have to say about any situation that they are in and go their own way.
Often as a person goes his own way, he fails or falls short of his desires and goals.
Many other people will seek out some guidance. This can be found in many different ways. Guidance is found in books, online articles or videos, GPS, talking to others, reading horoscopes, watching others, and many other ways.
Some of these ways lead a person in correct ways, while others will lead them down false paths.
The sons of Korah write that God is their God and He is their only guide. He is not only their guide for right now, but all the way to the end.
The best guide is the one who has been down the path or the one who knows the path from the beginning to the end. He has to have the experience to know how to guide another person correctly.
God is the only one who can see the end from the beginning. He knows the path perfectly well and knows how to guide people on it.
Jesus guided the disciples while He walked on the earth. When He left, He sent His Holy Spirit to continue guiding the disciples. Today every believer can have His Holy Spirit to guide him on the path in following Jesus and becoming more like Him.
You can also have God’s Holy Spirit in you and guiding you. As you read and study God’s word you will be guided by His Holy Spirit in how to live your life.
You are on the path towards becoming like Jesus in every way. It is a lifelong path, that will end only when God calls you into heaven for eternity.
Instead of looking towards temporary help that this world gives, and that will fall short, look towards God’s guidance. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you in every area of your life for ever.
I pray today that you will know God’s guidance; that you will hear His Holy Spirit telling you the way to live; that you will live by God’s ways; and that God will be your God forever.
