verse of the day

A sure guide. ( Exodus 23 v 20 )

                    Now let us consider Proverbs 3 v 6,'' In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He
                     shall direct thy paths.'' Gods word tell us we know not what a day may bring forth''
                     (Proverbs 27 v 1 ),but God does. It is strange that people at funerals have the song
                     ,' My Way', played ,as if  is an achievement  to boast about,and if we think of the
                      eternal  consequences, if that person has never trusted Jesus as Saviour.Again
                      Gods tells us, 'There is a way that seems right unto a man ,but in the end it leads to
                      death.' ( Proverbs  16 v 25 ) Charles Bridges writes ''The end tests the safety of the
                      path''. Oh the transcendent[meaning going beyond ourselves to God) mercy of the
                      eyes opened to see the awful danger of our own way,and our ears opened to hear
                      the voice behind us saying ,this is the way ,walk ye in it'' (Isaiah 30 v 21 ).
                      Consider the open part of this verse ,'' In all thy ways acknowledge Him'', How
                      inclusive these words are, '' we need to bring God into all things,everyday, we are
                      are no longer doing things our way,the worlds way, but Gods way. Next consider
                        acknowledging God ,He will respond ,and He will direct our paths. Again
                      Charles Bridges writes, ''No step well prayed over will bring ultimate regret,He will
                      lead us forth in the right way, (  Psalm 107 v 7 )''

                                                           He led them on safely.
                                                                ( Psalm 78 v 53 )
