There was road construction this summer on my path to work. It is a two lane state road. They were repaving the road. They would close down one side of the road and use the other side for traffic in both directions. A worker was stationed at both ends of the construction area to direct traffic. A pilot car was used to guide traffic. Warning signs where placed along the road instructing drivers to wait for the pilot cars. While waiting for the pilot car I discovered the following:
God has provided a guide for me. God’s word is available to guide my path. I just have to be willing and open to leading. It doesn’t matter how many Bibles I have around the house unless I make time to dig into the word.
Read the signs. It is up to me to read the instructions for life and chose to follow them. Unfortunately, my brain doesn’t have a USB slot to insert a jump drive loaded with the Word. I have to choose to take time to open God’s Word and study it. It is easy to get caught up in life and not take time to read the “signs”.
105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. (Psalm 119:105, New International Version)
