Guidance

My husband and I are in a time of our lives where we need guidance. Not just any guidance, but specific, concrete, beyond-a-shadow-of-a-doubt guidance.
A few years ago, I was in a similar position and God gave me a verse to ease my mind. As usual, I had written that verse on a notecard and had it taped various places in my house. While cleaning out boxes this past week, I came across that same notecard.
God provided a verse for me again, just as He always does when I ask.

Look at the beauty of that verse:
“Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory” – Ps 73:24

Does the psalmist (inspired by God) tell when God’s counsel will begin? No. Does he say when it will end? Yes, when we are in Heaven. One of the amazing things about a relationship with God is that He will always provide guidance (counsel) for us. He always has and always will – when He stops providing counsel, we’ll be in His presence.

God is El Roi, the God who sees us. He knows where we are, what we need, and where we are going.

God is Gelah Raz, the Revealer of mysteries. He knows what’s ahead and will reveal His will to us in His own time with His understanding.

God is Jehovah Jirah, our Provider. No matter where we are, He knows what we need and will provide for us when we need it most.

God is Jehovah Ori, our Light. He will guide us with his presence and his wisdom. We only have to seek Him to find Him.

“Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory” – Ps 73:24

God will always guide us – we only have to seek His counsel – it’s always there for His children. The only time we won’t have His guidance/counsel is when we’ll be with Him for eternity!

What a relief! 🙂
