A Bishop in the Church of England, known for his forgetfulness, boarded a train in London. Shortly after the train left the station, he began crawling around his seat and the other seats near him. Fearing for his safety, the conductor approached him carefully, tapped him on the shoulder, and asked what he was doing.
“I’m looking for my ticket,” said the Bishop.
“Well, that’s not a problem, Bishop. We’ll take care of you. It’s really quite all right,” replied the conductor.
“No, it isn’t,” said the Bishop. “I forgot where I am going!” confessed the Bishop.
“Show me the path where I should walk, O Lord, point out the right road for me to follow,” asked David. He knew that he needed guidance for life’s journey so he went to the ultimate source: God!
However, we all want to know: “How does God guide me personally?”
His primary “guidance system” is His Word and our prayers. If we truly want Him to lead us, we need to go to the “source” of His information. By carefully reading and meditating on His Word, and praying for His leadership in our lives, we will receive wisdom and insight on what to do.
However, if we want His insight and wisdom, we must spend time reading His Word and in prayer - waiting with an open mind and a sincere willingness for Him to reveal His path for us.
Prayer: Lord, we know that You have the path for us to take in life’s journey. As we read Your Word, open our eyes, speak to our hearts and show us the path we are to take. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Psalm 25:1-5 Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow.
