We’re receiving guidance from many different entities right now…from the CDC, the Federal Government, and the State Government…not to mention all the local Health Departments. And all these parties involved are attempting to manage and direct us during this pandemic to the best of their ability. But as Believers, we need to also look to Godly guidance. God’s direction through His Word can not only guide us, but watch over us, and speak to us. (Proverbs 6:22) His Word leads and directs our course as we listen and obey…for it tell us in Isaiah 58:11, “The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden , like a spring whose waters never fail.”
God wants only the very best for us…the most excellent, most productive life we can live…filled with the greatest satisfaction we can ever experience. Just like the old TV show, “Father Knows Best”, our Heavenly Father really does know what’s best for us. And we will discover it also as we allow God to teach, lead, and guide us.
Elsewhere, Isaiah talks about God making the rough ground level, (Isaiah 40:4) and safely leading the Believer along unfamiliar paths, (Isaiah 42:16). If we allow Him, the Lord will make the crooked, straight…the rough, smooth…and the misunderstood, grasped. Our way in this life is a constant journey on a little understood, bumpy path…where we are required to make decisions that can affect our life forever. But when we allow the Lord to guide us…He will show us the most excellent way to go.
