GUIDANCE FOR THE GOOD
TEXT: PSALM 37:23-30
MEMORY VERSE: “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way” (PSALM 37:23).
Have you ever used a GPS device to navigate your way? It’s a marvel of technology. The navigator takes you through the twists and turns of the road network and lands you squarely at your desired destination. Although the GPS is much improved now, it has not always been error-proof.
In August 2009, a young mother and her six-year-old son became stranded in Death Valley, California. She had followed GPS directions which led her up an unpaved dead-end road. When they were found five days later, her son had died from the effects of heat and dehydration. But our God has a pin-point accurate navigation system for His trusting children.
Decision-making is a regular fact of life. At that juncture, many young people trust their future to mere chance or “luck”. They are torn between friends’ recommendations on social media, the wish of parents and the bandwagon effect in school or society..Only a precious few ever consider seeking God in prayer for divine guidance. Many end up with shameful scars instead of being shining stars. Decision is destiny, put yours in God’s hands.
QUOTE: God has a pin-point accurate navigation system.
CHALLENGE: Entrust your future into God’s hands.
PRAYER: Guide me, O thou great Jehovah, Amen.
