Do you see the Light?

The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.Proverbs 12:15
There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
Proverbs 14:12

God speaks through anything and anyone.

Yesterday as I was going to work a tracker trailer with the word "Shammah" was in front of me. I smiled to myself because I remembered that Jehovah-Shammah means the Lord is there. It was comforting for me.

This morning yet another truck with the words "follow me". There was other language but that's all I read.

Follow me, the Lord is there. Wow!

As my eyes glanced at the toll both lanes, inevitably some are marked with a green light and other clearly have a big red "X".

God speaks through anything or anyone.

As we make decisions, often we battle which way to go; what direction to take; how to decide the matter.

The man who's heart loves the Lord will seek council from God but how often do we still make the wrong decision. Why?

I believe sometimes we are hasty and if we are honest have decided the way to go and somehow justify it saying "this is the way" the Lord wants me to go.

Paul thought he knew the way until the Lord blinded him on the road to Damascus. With blinded eyes a new opportunity was given to him so that he could really see.

Balaam was halted. An angel of the Lord appeared causing his donkey to stop and speak like a man to get Balaam's attention; he had followed the wrong road.

Decisions: a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration. What are we considering? Who's council are we following? Will my way honor God? Are my choices reflective of my worship and pledge to the Lord?

Like a green light at the toll booth, lets be sure we are in the right line because sometimes the light changes quickly and we are forced to switch lanes.

Sometimes waiting is the answer until we are sure.

Wherever the road leads lets make sure we are following God's instruction; we'll find that he is there to meet us! Do you see the Light?

God bless you!~Liz
