Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye.”
I travel every now and then to a place I’ve never been. Thankfully, my “electronic navigational tool” helps me get to where I need to go. I punch in the address and up pops a map. It even has a pleasant voice to tell me when I need to turn in time for me to get in the right lane (not that I don’t argue with her sometimes). As thankful as I am for this automated help, I know that sometimes these systems can send you in a bad direction especially if they haven’t been updated.
This is never true of the Lord. He will always guide you in the right direction. I can be negotiating unfamiliar territory in my life, and yet, I can be confident that God is watching me and guiding me. I can rest assured that nothing on my journey will be left to chance. When He says He will guide me with His eye, I know He will keep that promise.
Life in these last days is requiring believers to chart a course with uncertain conditions up ahead. Trust God to guide you. But guidance by His eye isn’t automatic. It is a result of intimate, day by day, face to face communion with Him, gazing at the all-knowing, all seeing God though His Word and prayer.
This is His desire for your life.
