Scripture: Isaiah 48:17 This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
Devotional: If you’ve ever found yourself wondering which way to go, today’s passage gives encouragement. When you seek God, He will teach you what is best for you and direct you in the way you should go. It’s as simple as that.
Too often, many live life confused and aimless. Friend, this is not God’s plan. He specifically and clearly leads those whose hearts are set on following Him.
That doesn’t mean the going is always easy. We’ve seen in our devotions this week the challenges that many who have gone before us have faced. To go when God calls is certainly an adventure, and sometimes even a hardship. But it is one that is undoubtedly worth every risk, every fear, every apprehension.
Will you go when He calls?
- Take time to pray today and listen for God’s call in your life. Whether it is a physical going, or simply to give yourself more fully to His purpose for you in sharing the Gospel, pray for Him to clearly direct your path and for the courage to follow Him no matter where He leads.
