The Only True Guide
“The Only True Guide” By Zach Wood Psalm 119:105
This past Sunday morning, we used the song “Thy Word” in our
worship time.This song holds a very
special place in my heart and in my life, from childhood to now.This was a song we sang at my church camp for
many years and in various youth groups I have attended.
God’s Word should be, without a doubt, the only guide for us
in our lives.It is easy to say that is
the way it should be.However, many
times, we end up trying to guide ourselves and break away from the path God
wants us on.It is so easy to become
distracted and become lost.Being lost
is no fun at all.When I am lost, it drives
me crazy and I want to find the path I need to be on again.
When we do not allow God’s Word to guide us and we decide to
do our own thing and go our own way, life seems to become derailed.Somehow, things just don’t work out
well.The great news here is that no
matter how far we drift away, God is waiting for us and longing for us to
return to Him while His arms are open wide.He wants us to stay on this true path where He leads.
We need to ask ourselves if His Word is truly a lamp for our
feet and a light for our path?Do we
truly desire to walk with Him?Are we
completely focused each day on staying on the narrow path?Again, it is easy to say we do, but living
that out is a difficult thing to do.
It is my prayer that we strive each day to follow God’s Word
and the path He is leading us on.If we
are not in tune to His way and His Word, then we will go our own way and
drift.Let His Word be our only way of
