"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye." - Psalms 32:8 NKJV
What a powerful thought - God said He will instruct and teach me. Many people look to coaches, mentors and trainers for advice. They might compare themselves to others, compare their churches to other churches, or wonder what other people would do in a similar situation.
Whilst none of those things are wrong, they shouldn’t be our first response - Our Father should be. Many years ago the phrase “What Would Jesus Do?” (W.W.J.D.) became really fashionable. It’s worth us considering that phrase again instead of thinking “What would someone else do?”
God has a good plan and purpose for our lives, and if our desire is to fulfil His plan so we can honour Him, then we are best off going to Him each day for His direction. Many people pay top dollar to be trained or mentored by someone, but our Father will do it for free. He lives in you, He won’t leave you and He’s available for you all day, every day. We just need to develop a listening ear to what He is saying.
So, why not make the decision to start fresh today? Increase your time in His Word and in His presence? There is no greater benefit for your life than to be trained by God Himself.
“I declare that my ear is tuned in to what God is saying. I choose to study His Word; I choose to pray; I choose to spend time with Him. As I am growing in Him, He is growing in me…”
