If? Which way? Where to now?

Isaiah 30 - 33

GPS, compasses, phones, maps, ...hard to get lost in today's world?  Not really.  

What about when the computers go down and it seems we don't know how to do anything anymore!  Not just directions, but everything else!

How did we get by without them?

Easy.  It's all in what we get use to.  Don't get me wrong I like my computer to check out what's going on in the world as much as the next person, but we can survive without might be difficult, but we could make it!

I am reminded here in Colorado how important directions are and how quickly one might get lost without them and need saving.  Don't we all need saving?

When I got to Isaiah 30:21, I was reminded just how we all need God's help!
Your own ears will hear him.
Right behind you a voice will say, 
"This is the way you should go,"
whether to the right or to the left.

God directs our paths, IF we listen.  Did you catch the emphasis on IF?  I mean seriously how often do we tune out the Holy Spirit?  Think about it and be honest with doesn't fit the calendar right now.  It's not exactly what I want to do today LORD.  I can't possibly right now.  Do any of these sound a little familiar?  What if God told us that when we need His direction so badly to choose the right path?  Sorry I'm busy right now!  I can't possibly right now!  Sounds awful, if we think God might say that to us.

Another, verse that grasp me was the chapter in verse 18 ~
So the LORD must wait for you to come to him so 
he can show you his love and compassion.
For the LORD is a faithful God.
Blessed are those who wait for his help.

Again, how often do we not ask for God's help or direction in our life?  WE must ask Him, so that He will guide our footsteps.  He will, but He desires our need for Him to be acknowledged, so that He will fill our deep holes in our souls with all of Him!

Ask today for God's help.  Asking for help isn't a bad thing ~ it shows we know who really knows all the answers!  In case your wondering it's not any of us!  Only God!

Sweet blessings,
