Who is Guiding You?

From birth we are guided by our parents, guardians, people who love and care for us. As we grow, our sphere of guidance/influence grows to include teachers, friends, additional family, social media, our hobbies/lessons/sporting teams, boyfriends/girlfriends, husbands/wives, travel, church community and God's Word - the Bible and your personal relationship with Jesus Christ. WHEW! Our guidance comes from a few sources initially, but then accelerates as we get older.

In our lives, some relationships and/or activities we are involved in are only for a season. At times, we have to walk away as the guidance and actions we are receive and partake in, is not good for us. Words that are spoken, actions that are taken can lead us astray.

God's Word - The Holy Bible is one source that will never lead us astray! Please read these verses from several books of the Old and New Testament. God's guidance, His counsel, His forgiveness, His unconditional love will guide us here on earth until we meet in Heaven.

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success 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. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path.” Proverbs 2:6-9 (NIV)

“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.” Isaiah 30:21 (NIV)

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.” John 16:13-14 (NIV)

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” Psalm 32:8 (NIV)
