“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye” (Psalm 32:8 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
This verse is God’s promise to show me the best pathway for my life. I’m never out of His sight! When I wander away or face dead ends and detours, God is there to point out the way I should take. I’m thankful for a guide that has my best interest at heart.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, You are faithful to give good, straightforward advice when I need it most. Your daily guidance is so reassuring to me!
Devotion by Julie Long
Have you ever tried finding your way in dark, unfamiliar surroundings without a light? When the power goes out in your home unexpectedly, you reach for a flashlight and hope that the batteries are still good.
Stumbling around in the darkness is not a pleasant experience. Even in familiar settings, it is easy to lose our sense of direction. When we find ourselves enshrouded in darkness, uneasiness rises within us and fear clutches our throats.
As we walk through life, we can lose our way too. Darkness can descend and which way to go is no longer clear.
Prayer: Dear God, You told us that Your Word is our light. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105). Thank You for giving us direction, hope, and reassurance.
