“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” (Psalm 25:9)
Dear friends, the Lord has a beautiful promise verse for you today. It is taken from Psalm 25:9, “He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.” First the Lord will guide the humble to justice and then teach them His way. How does He guide us and what is the path of justice? It is the path of the cross. We read in Acts 14:22, Paul and Barnabas went around “strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said”. According to God, we have to go through so many tribulations in order to enter the kingdom of God. This is how the Lord leads us. This is the way of God.
In Hebrews 12:5,6 we read, “My son, do not take lightly the discipline of the Lord, and do not lose heart when He rebukes you. For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He chastises every son He receives.” When we go through the path of affliction it is very hard for us. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it (Hebrews 12:11). When we go through trouble it will be painful but this is the way God teaches us His way. He also teaches us through the Word of God. We see in Psalm 94:12, “Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law;” Yes, everyday the Lord teaches us through the Word of God. Not only that He sends His Holy Spirit to live among us and teaches us all things.
What a wonderful God we have! He teaches even the small things to us through the Holy Spirit. He will beautifully lead us and guide us even today. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21). You don’t have to turn to the right or to the left. God’s voice will lead along the straight path to Heaven. The Lord will catch hold of your hand and lead you beautifully. He says, “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” (Isaiah 46:4). Do not be discouraged. The Lord who teaches you is always living in you.
Loving Heavenly Father,
What a wonderful God I have in You Lord. You are my Teacher and my Guide. You are my only hope Master. Even now as I am going through much tribulation, guide me and teach me Your way. Free me from my troubles Lord. Let me have joy instead of sorrow. Let me see a change in my life from today. Lead me have a straight path. Guide me beautifully. Hold on to my hand and lead me.
In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
