The Upper Room Daily Devotional For Today 8 July 2022Finding Direction By Arlene Timber-Henry (St. Maarten)

TOPIC: Finding Direction

TODAY’S READING

Psalm 25:4-11

KEY VERSE: Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. – Psalm 119:105 (NRSV)

MESSAGE

When I began using a smart-watch fitness tracker I’d received from a friend, I faced two obstacles: figuring out how to charge it and synchronizing the watch with my smart phone so they could share data. Because my friend had misplaced both the original packaging and the instruction manual, I went online hoping to find the answers I needed.

To my dismay, nothing on the watch indicated what brand or model it was. It wasn’t until the original owner sent a product description that I realized it was a completely different brand than I had thought. However, once I entered the correct information, the synchronization process was easy.

How often we try to figure things out ourselves, without seeking God’s direction! Somehow we end up going in a roundabout way, much like the Israelites did in the book of Exodus when they left Egypt. Just as God provided the navigational tools they needed — a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night — God wants to direct the steps of our lives.

As we pray, read the Bible, and yield to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, God will help us find our way out of the mistakes of our past and enable us to look toward the future with confidence and hope.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

I can stay on course when I keep in step with God.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Dear God, thank you for guiding us on this journey called life, and for the assurance that you will never lead us in the wrong direction. Amen.
