To find our way somewhere, we first need to know where we want to go. Any directions we get, otherwise, are pretty much useless.
In these next quiet moments, think first about where you want to go as a believer. The Spirit awaits to take you there.next >
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb.
Psalm 19:7-10next >
I went to the mountains a few weeks ago and thought I knew the way, but then it started to get sketchy. Thank goodness for GPS! Global positioning systems are amazing because not only can they tell you where you are, they can also tell where you are heading. Even in the middle of the night, they can help point you in the right direction.
While that’s great for trips in the car, wouldn’t it be great to have something like that to make sure our lives were always heading in the right direction? Today's psalm says God’s word revives our souls, rejoices our hearts, and enlightens our eyes, helping us to see.
Of course you already know that because you’re here, on your desktop/iPad/smartphone, opening yourself to God’s word — a God Positioning System — that gives us joy and light and direction to follow Jesus.

Lord, what would I give to be able to hear your speak? Cash, checks, coins, and gold. Enlighten my eyes today, and remind me that your Word is to be desired more than anything else. Amen.next >
Go now with great confidence that the Spirit who has led you so far will continue to lead you into your future. Stay alert to any new direction the Spirit might take you, and then go willingly, with delight in new discovery!
