Daily Devotion: God’s Guidance

Bible Reading: Psalm 48 

Key Verse: Verse 14For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.”

Key Words: he will be our guide

Following the guidance of God is a necessity for the believer.

  • Dante said, “In His will is our peace.”

  • George Truett said, “To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge. To do the will of God is the greatest achievement.”

  • A. T. Pierson once said, “To go as I am led, to go when I am led, to go where I am led; this is the prayer of my life.”

One night as the famous Bible teacher F. B. Meyer stood on the deck of a ship approaching land, he wondered how the crew knew when and how to safely steer to the dock. It was a stormy night, and visibility was low. Meyer, standing on the bridge and peering through the window, asked the captain, “How do you know when to turn the ship into the narrow harbor?”

That’s an art,” replied the captain, “Do you see those three red lights on the shore? When they are all in a straight line, we turn into the harbor.”

Later Meyer said, “When we want to be guided by God and know His will, there are three lights that occur: the light of desire will appear, the light of God’s Word, and the light of opportunity will come on.”

In essence Meyer was saying, God will place a desire in your heart; that desire will agree with God’s Word; and God will open a door of opportunity for you to carry out the desire He placed upon your heart.

There is nothing more exciting in the life of the believer than following God’s guidance and doing His will.

What to do:
✞ Do God’s will daily.

✞ Do the little things; they always lead to bigger things.
