Daily Verse: “The light of the righteous rejoices, but the lamp of the wicked will be put out.” Prov. 13:9

God’s flame endures.

When God led the Israelites out of Egypt, He used fire to guide them at night. Shining brightly, the Lord’s light comforted the Israelites in the darkness, assuring them of His presence. During the day, a cloud led the people through the desert; God accompanied His people always.

Following Jesus illuminates our path. The Holy Spirit guides and directs us. As we become more in tune with God, we become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s promptings, showing us the next steps.

God didn’t give the Israelites the entire itinerary for their trip. For forty years, the Lord led them daily to the promised land. In the same way, God only gives us the next step, not the entire journey. Like a flashlight in the dark, God provides us enough light to see where He wants us to go next. Eventually, like the Israelites, we’ll reach the promised land in God’s time and way.

Instead of trying to figure out the whole story, enjoy the current chapter. Trust God to lead you step by step to the promised land. Let His light illuminate your path.

Lord, forgive us for rushing ahead of You.  As we pursue Jesus, help us become sensitive to the Spirit’s prompting, following the path You want us to walk. Let us discover our purpose each day as we pursue You wholeheartedly. IJNIP. Amen
