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 )
