WHERE AM I GOING?
A well-respected theologian was leaving London for a lecture series in another city. As he sat looking out the window, the conductor asked for his ticket.
Searching frantically through his pockets, he discovered that he had lost it.
Wanting to be helpful, the conductor said, “It’s alright. Don’t worry.”
“No, it’s not alright,” said the theologian. “I don’t know where I’m going.”
Many have the same problem. They start on life’s journey not knowing where they are going or where or when it will end. In fact, a dear friend once said to me, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” He realized I was without a plan.
Not David. He knew where to find directions. In Psalm 25 he said, “Show me the path I should walk, O Lord, point out the right road for me to follow.”
With all of his knowledge and wisdom, success and power, David still waited on the Lord for direction. He constantly looked to God for guidance no matter where he was or what he was doing. How wise!
If it was important for David to do this, how much more so for us. When he realized that he needed God’s guidance, he would discovered it by meditating on His Word, going to Him in prayer and listening for His voice. Instead of demanding answers, he waited for His directions.
Prayer: We pray, Father, that we will patiently look to You to lead us, guide us, and guard us in paths of righteousness for Your sake and our success! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
