The scripture for today, October 23 (10/23) is Jeremiah 10:23 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.”
Just how are we supposed to know what steps God has directed us to take? Do we have to guess, rely on a feeling, depend on the movement of our heart, a vision? Actually, we have a guide, a roadmap.
Jesus said in John 14:16-17 that after he left, the Father would send another Counselor ~ the Spirit of Truth. In John 16:13 Jesus said The Spirit of Truth will guide us into all truth.” In John 17:17, Jesus said, “Your Word is truth.”
Yes, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, guides us through the Word of God, the Bible.
We don’t have to guess! We don’t have to wonder! We don’t have to get discouraged! God has given us his Word to direct our steps. All we have to do is open his Word and read the map.
