Story of the day: The Guide
Elisabeth Elliott tells in A Slow and Certain Light:
Two adventurers came stopped by to see me, all loaded with equipment for the rain forest east of the Andes. They sought no advice, just a few phrases to converse with the Indians.
Sometimes we come to God as the two adventurers came to me–confident and, we think, well-informed and well-equipped. But has it occurred to us that with all our accumulation of stuff, something is missing?
Maybe we often ask God for too little. We know what we need–a yes or no answer, please, to a simple question. Or perhaps a road sign. Something quick and easy to point the way.
What we really ought to have is the Guide himself. Maps, road signs, a few useful phrases are good things, but infinitely better is Someone who has been there before and knows the way.
Quote of the day: Huisman
“Like a compass, God always points you in the right direction.”
Bible verse of the day: Genesis 12:1
“The LORD has said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
You are my Ultimate Guide. I put my total trust and faith that You will get me to where You want me to be. Thank You for leading me down this path and for showing me where to go. I thank You for this blessed day.
In Jesus Name I pray,
