A well-respected theologian was leaving London for a lecture series in another city. As he sat looking out the window, the conductor asked for his ticket.
Searching frantically through his pockets, he discovered that he had lost it.
Wanting to be helpful, the conductor said, “It’s all right. Don’t worry.”
“No, it’s not all right,” said the passenger. “I don’t know where I’m going.”
Many have the same problem. They start on life’s journey not knowing where they are going or where or when it will end. Someone once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”
Not David. He knew where to find directions. In Psalm 25 he said, “Show me the path I should walk, O Lord, point out the right road for me to follow.”
With all of his knowledge and wisdom, success and power, David still looked to the Lord for direction. He constantly looked to God for guidance no matter where he was or what he was doing. How wise!
If it was important for David to do this, how much more so for us. He realized that he needed God’s guidance. He discovered it by meditating on His Word, going to Him in prayer and listening for His voice. Instead of demanding answers, he waited for directions.
Prayer: We pray, Father, that we will look to You to lead us and guide us in paths of righteousness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 25:1-5 Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.
