As we walk through the day with God we need to be aware of what God says about the way we walk.
In Joshua 22:5 He says “But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to obey His commands, to hold fast to Him and serve Him with all your heart and all your soul”.
If we walk with Him, God promises us the following in Proverbs 2:7 “He holds victory in store for the upright, He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for He guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones”.
God also said that if we asked Him “He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in his paths”.
There is a beautiful passage in Isaiah 30:18 that says this “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!”
Sometimes in this journey of life we tend to rush ahead and leave God behind. We need to remember to wait for Him.
The passage continues as follows: “Whether you turn to the right or to the left your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying “This is the way; walk in it”.
If we wait for God we will hear His voice telling us in which direction to go.
In fact in Jeremiah 6:16 that is exactly what God says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”
In other words when we are not sure what to do and we are standing at a crossroad in our life we need to search God’s Word for the direction He wants us to take.
