God leads us in the right path

[God] leads me on the right path because that’s who He is. Psalm 23:3 The Easy Bible

Let’s review what this verse DOESN’T say. He doesn’t guide me because I’m a really nice guy. He doesn’t lead me because I’m a real man. He doesn’t teach me because I think I’m spiritual, or because my second grade teacher put stars on my papers.

God guides me for a reason bigger than me, a reason outside of me, a reason that doesn’t depend on me.

I don’t know about you, but I need verses like this one, and also Psalm 25:8 (God instructs sinners in His ways—it’s easy to qualify for that one!), Philippians 1:6 & 2:13 (God is at work in me). I need these verses because apart from God I’m not such a good guy, I need a God who is going to work with me even so.

If, like me, you don’t trust your own spirituality, your own commitment to Christ, rejoice that you can count on God’s commitment to you.

Remember, you are designed to make a difference!

  1. Absolutely true. The only hope for me is to cling to Jesus. I look back and remember who I was. I don’t want to go back there. I am still far from perfect, but I am amazed at how God has been able to change my thinking and my actions. I realize that it is not me who has changed. God is changing me, and if I don’t cling to Him, I will slip back into the person that I used to be.

    • Thanks, Tom!
