Your Direction in Life

What is your direction in life? If you don't know, you may simply be going in circles. There may not be a sense of direction to your life. Unfortunately, life can become confusing without clear direction on the way. Life is meant to be a journey, on the way to your God given destiny.

You may think, I don't know what to do nor which way to go. None of us do without a guide. You need a guide in your life, someone who knows the way and will lead you in the right path. Allow me to recommend the best guide. It's God himself who will lead you like a shepherd leading his sheep. Understand, sheep left to themselves have no sense of direction. They must have a shepherd to lead them in the right direction.

When the LORD is your Shepherd, life is a journey on the right path, leading you to the right places at the right time. God knows your needs. He leads you in a timely fashion. You need not worry about the right way. He is the way. He is with you always. He provides for your needs. The LORD is my shepherd; I have everything I need (Psalm 23:1, NLT).

When God is your Shepherd, you can trust him to lead you day by day. All you have to do is follow. Sheep are led by the shepherd's voice. They know his voice and follow him. He leads them with peace. So the LORD will lead you with his peace. Let his peace in your heart be the sure guide all along the way. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams (Psalm 23:2, NLT).
