God Will Light Your Path

Do you need to make an important decision? Have you asked God to guide you? God says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go.” (Psalm 32:8).

When you’re driving at night you won’t see the entire highway lit up all at once. You can only see how far your car’s headlights shine down the road. But as your car moves forward, the light keeps moving ahead of you to light your path. You’ll eventually reach your destination by following the light.

When God led Israel through the wilderness, “The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go” (Nehemiah 9:19). Although God doesn’t lead us exactly like that today, He still guides us by illuminating our paths.

When you seek the Lord to guide you He will shine light on the right path. It might only be enough light to take one step. But when you take that step, He’ll give light for another step. He reveals His will to you a little bit at a time—like a scroll being unrolled. 
God lights the path through…

1. God’s Word. “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Ps. 119:105). God will never lead us in a path that contradicts the Scriptures.
2. Desires in your heart. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” (Ps. 37:4). When you seek God to make the right decision, He will put the desires in your heart to want what He wants.
3. Open and closed doors. He will open the right door or may close a wrong door. See Revelation 3:7-8.
