“I am the Lord your God, who directs you in the way you should go.” (Isaiah 48:17)
Lord Jesus Christ when He lived on this planet earth, He surrendered Himself totally to the Father’s will. Even at the end of His ministry, we read in the Scriptures, the amount of pain He underwent on the way to Calvary carrying the cross and the sufferings on the cross. Yes, all through His life He obeyed the voice of the Father and completed His ministry fulfilling it. We read in the Scripture saying, “Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work” (John 14:10). He walked along the path shown by the Father. In the same way, we should surrender ourselves completely into His hands to fulfil His will.
God will give you words of wisdom to bring peace to all. He has promised you, “I am the Lord your God, who guides you in the way you should walk” (Isaiah 48:17). He will give you words of wisdom to speak healing to people. Yes, He will show you the path you should walk. Receive his blessing, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you” (Psalm 32:8). He will go before you and make the crooked places straight (Isaiah 45: 2).
A Prayer for Today
Dear Father in Heaven, thank You for reconciling me with You through Jesus Christ. Thank You for the love and forgiveness You have showed me. Help me to show the same love and forgiveness to others also. Lead me through this life in Your righteous path so that I would enjoy victory from You. Teach me Thy ways O lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
