The real key to safety and success is following the leadership of the Holy Spirit of God. This provides us with the ultimate of security.
The author of the following is unknown to me but the article does provide us with a great truth in regard to safety.
“When I was in the Marine Corps our ship one time was at the northeastern corner of Formosa (now called Taiwan) near Taipei. We stopped there at the mouth of the harbor and awaited the arrival of the harbor pilot, who came out and took the wheel of the ship and began to weave us through the pathless waters that led to the dock itself. At first glance that seemed like an unnecessary thing to do. We could see the dock less than a mile ahead. But the closer we looked and the longer we looked over the side of the ship into the crystal clear waters, we could tell why. There were mines located randomly beneath the surface of the water. If the hull of our ship had nudged a mine just enough, disaster would have occurred. But the pilot of the harbor knew where every mine was located.”
So it is with the Holy Spirit. He knows every danger we face and how to avoid the wiles of the devil. If I could give you any advice, it would be to humble yourself and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God.
What to do:
✞ Follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit, and you’ll never make a wrong turn.
