THE GUIDE

GOD'S GUIDANCE.


"The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make;
for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful."
-Colossians 3:15 (GNB)

When will I ever learn?

Many are the times that I wanted and needed God to guide me.
And many are the times when I have started in a direction that seemed correct and felt compelled to take.  Even after prayer.

And many are the times that I have wasted; time, money and energy as a result.  Because I have not waited for the peace of God to guide me about the matter.

God is the source of peace.
See Romans 15:33 and 16:20 as an example.

Jesus gives us peace by being united with him.
See John 16:33.
Perhaps that is the problem.  I have been too much on my own.

"And God's peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus."
-Philippians 4:7 (GNB)

I heard someone once say somthing like this: "The best I have to give to myself, pales in comparison to even the least God gives to me." I am always much better offer taking His hand than laying out my own course.

Can we ever be reminded enough of this valuable wisdom?

Thanks for the dose of wisdom!
