Daily Reading: Genesis 20:1-22:24, Matthew 7:15-29, Psalm 9:1-12, Proverbs 2:16-22

Daily Verse: “So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous.” Proverbs 2:20

Following Jesus helps keep your paths straight. Nudges from the Holy Spirit help redirect us when we need a course change.

While golfing, playing the first person closest to the hole gets the point, I felt a nudge. Losing at the time, when Ron’s ball landed an inch closer than mine, I had the opportunity to cheat. But the nudge from within made me say, “You’re closer,” giving Ron the point.

Staying in tune with God means acknowledging the nudges we feel. Often, we want to ignore the Spirit’s guidance, but we don’t grow until we learn the lesson. The sooner we submit to Jesus, the straighter our paths will become. But ignoring God will lead us on crooked paths.

Taking the right path will require more effort, but you won’t regret the work. A pure heart and clear conscience lead to a good night’s sleep after walking the path of righteousness.

Listen to the Spirit’s promptings, and let God keep you on the right path.

Lord, forgive us for ignoring Your promptings. Please help us stay on the right path today. Guide and directs us where You want us to go. Let us honor and serve You well today. IJNIP. Amen
