I [the Lord] will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Psalms 32:8 (AMPC)
We all need instructions and guidance to arrive to our desired destination. There are many sources fighting for our attention, claiming to provide the right instructions and guidance that will bring us to where we aspire to be in life.
But only the Lord’s instructions and guidance can get us to our true destination and right destiny.
There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 (AMPC)
There’s a way of thinking, doing things, dealing in the affairs of life that seems right and appears straight but at the end or the end results of it is loss, failure, destruction, regret, waste, disappointment, pain, and death.
Thank God the Lord is a way maker. He has a way for us His children and desires to instruct and teach us in His way. The Lord’s way is the only way we should go because:
It’s the way of life. Acts 2:28 (NLT) You have shown me the way of life, and you will fill me with the joy of your presence.’
It’s upward or above thus keeping us away from suffering and destruction
Proverbs 15:24 (NKJV) The way of life [winds] upward for the wise, That he may turn away from hell below.
The Lord instructs and teaches us through His Word. So in order to walk in this way of life we have to follow His instructions and guidance in His Word.
The Lord has also said He will counsel us with His eye upon us. This He does by His Holy Spirit in our heart or spirit.
The Way Maker directs and guides us in the Way of Life from within our spirit or heart.
Proverbs 20:27 (NKJV) The spirit of a man [is] the lamp of the LORD, Searching all the inner depths of his heart.
Your spirit or heart is the Lord’s lamp or light that He uses to guide you in the way of life He’s cut out specifically for you. This is because the Holy Spirit, the spirit of truth who guides us into all truth dwells in your spirit or heart. The Holy Spirit speaks to your spirit everything from God.
Stay in God’s Word, let the Holy Spirit lead you as you pay attention to what’s in your heart or spirit. That’s how you will accurately follow the Way Maker as He instructs, teaches, and counsels you in the Way of Life, the upward Way.
