“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” –Psalm 32:8
Have you ever felt so lost that you never would find your way? After spending a few hours at Eagle Creek Park one afternoon, my husband Jeff and I could not find our vehicle after searching for about an hour. Upon taking a rest stop, while I was glancing over the park map, Jeff suddenly recognized our surroundings and led the way directly to our van. It wasn’t until we took a break to regain our perspective that we could find it.
In many confusing situations, it only takes a moment of pausing for a person to refocus and then move forward productively through a dilemma. Stop what you’re doing. Breathe. Pray—asking God to “instruct and teach you in the way you should go.” Then, take your next step in the journey, trusting the Lord “will counsel and watch out for you” as He guides you in finding your way.
Lord, give us wisdom when we lack it, give us direction when we are lost, and help us to always find our way with You. In Your name I pray, Amen.
