Topic: God’s Guidance – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi [Tuesday, September 19, 2017].
SCRIPTURE: “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye”(Psalm 32:8).
The English Oxford Living Dictionary defines guidance as, “Advice or information aimed at resolving a problem or difficulty, especially as given by someone in authority.” This reveals our need for direction and guidance in life to achieve good success. Knowing that information is key to avoiding pitfalls in life, we are rest assured that God will not leave or forsake those who rely on him.
However, Madame Guyon detects a problem here. She says, “Many people want to direct God, instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him; to show Him a way instead of passively following the way He leads.” Christian youths are daily faced with different kinds of challenges such as the need to make a choice of friends, school and subjects to offer, career, the church to attend and places to go to. These seemingly insignificant decisions go a long way in shaping our eventual future success or failure. We therefore need God`s guidance. He alone knows what tomorrow holds.
Challenge: God has the final say.
Prayer: Guide me o thou great Jehovah
