Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.
It used to be when you were lost that you stopped at a gas station and asked for directions. Hopefully the person who directed you knew what he was talking about. Technology, however, is changing all that.
Rockwell International has produced the PathMaster system, which uses a satellite not only to beam route instructions to specially equipped automobiles but also allows the user to call up reviews of nearby restaurants and hotels.
Etak Incorporated is offering a similar program, but in addition to travel directions it also keeps the driver up-to-date via satellite on possible traffic tie-ups and provides alternate routing instructions if necessary. The cost of these systems? Around $3,000.
Isaiah tells us, however, that there is a guidance system that takes no extra equipment or cash. All it takes is a heart sensitive to the still, small voice of God.
God has always been concerned with the direction in which mankind is headed. When He inquired of Adam in the Garden of Eden, “Where are you?” it was because He knew that Adam had veered off course. When the Israelites left the land of Egypt, He gave them a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night so that they would not lose their way.
Isaiah confessed that the people of his day were “like sheep [that] have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way” (Isa. 53:6). But God did not give up on them. Instead He offered to restore them and give them the guidance they needed.
If you need God’s guidance today, make sure your heart is right with Him. Then claim His promise. If you will listen to the voice of His Spirit, He will guide you through every twist and turn of your life’s journey. He will tell you the way. Will you walk in it?
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW GOD’S WAY, YOU HAVE TO LISTEN FOR HIS VOICE.
