“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;
I will counsel you with My eye upon you” (Psalm 32:8 NASB).
Through His Word, God reminds us that He will provide us with instruction–instruction that is sound and rational–to live right and receive all He has for us.
He reminds us that He will teach us the direction we should take–in all areas of our lives at all times. The instruction He provides us will equip us to succeed upon the path He has established.
He watches over us in our journey of life and stands ready to offer us wise counsel when He sees us getting off track. He wants us to succeed. He has established plans for us to succeed because that is His desire. It is up to us to hear Him when we go astray so we can get back on track quickly. How do we hear God speaking to us? When we have a relationship with Him and communicate on a regular basis, we will know when He speaks to our hearts about anything. Once we receive the message He speaks to our hearts, we then–using the mind of Christ, begin to make sense of what we have heard and put it into action. Our hearts must first receive, so our minds will believe all that He says.
When we let God be God, our lives will be so much better. God never changes, man’s instructions, teachings and counsel are often contradictory to God’s Word and change constantly indicating there is no stability in the mind of man who does not trust in the Lord!
