You young'uns might have never seen one.
We don’t see weather vanes much anymore.
I sure could use one of these on my car. It has one of those new-fangled GPS things but I haven’t figured it out.
I have zero sense of direction. No, really, I mean it! North, south, east, west – forget it. I can get lost before I drive out of my driveway.
So I guess you could say I’m directionless.
As I watched this arrow turn with the wind, I realized that sometimes I’m lost in my life.
- I face a hard decision and I don’t know which way to go.
- Situations challenge my beliefs and I waver in the wind.
- I’m tripped up by temptations because I’m not watching where I’m going.
There is a remedy – a Person – to point me in the right direction.
The Lord is a whisper away.
How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Isaiah 30:19b
The Lord is here we need to make a decision.
This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. Isaiah 48:17
The Lord is here to lean on when we need to stand strong.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. John 16:13a
The Lord protects us when a temptation looms before us.
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
This is the kind of guidance we all need!
Recently, I have needed God's guidance to make difficult decisions.
What help do you need from Him right now?
