Here’s a sample of what you’ll get if you buy my devotional book…..
“Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in You.”
Psalms 25:4-5 (NLT)
Feeling confused? Not sure which path to take? This verse is a good one to pray. When you ask for God’s direction, just be sure to listen. Then, let Him lead you by His truth. In verse five where it says, “Lead me by your truth,” David is referring to God’s word. Guidance is often found directly through reading His word. So, if you feel God is telling you to do something; but it contradicts with what it says in His word; you should question what you’re hearing.
If you’re still unclear, keep praying and reading His word. Continue to seek His guidance. You might also ask a close friend to pray for you as well. What you don’t want to do is get too eager and run ahead of God. I have done this so many times. Every time I run too fast and get ahead of God, I fall flat on my face. But He graciously gives me another chance to get it right. And He’ll even give me a third and fourth chance if necessary.
I once attended a sales training workshop, and the instructor taught us to “Go Slow to Go Fast.” In sales, this concept means that it’s sometimes better to slow down and spend more time gathering information about what your potential customer needs before jumping right to all the cool gadgets you have
to offer. If you spend more time, in the beginning, asking the right questions, you’ll be able to identify more quickly the exact product or service that will best help your customer.
We should implement this “Go Slow to Go Fast” idea when we are in need of guidance in our personal lives. If we slow down, take more time to pray, read God’s word, and seek His will, more likely, we will make better decisions.
Lord, I pray Psalms 25:4-5: Show me the right path, point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long, I put my hope in You. I’m feeling unsure about (fill in the blank). Please lead me to the right scripture that will give me wisdom in making this decision. Keep me from getting ahead of You and messing things up. Help me to gain the knowledge needed to make good choices. If there is any sin in my life that would keep me from hearing Your voice clearly, point it out to me so that I can repent and get back on track. In Jesus’ name, I pray, AMEN.
