I Will Instruct You


Train signals.

I stood looking up at the colorful array.

They’re very important, aren’t they?

I don’t know anyone who would want to board a train if they knew that there would be no working signals for the conductor along the route.

Without signals, who could know what was up ahead?

There would be no preparation to avoid a possible disaster.

God encourages us with these words from Psalm 32:

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. (verse 8)

We are not without instruction.

God has not positioned us aboard a train that will travel without proper direction and warning.

Through His Holy Spirit working in us and through His Word in the scriptures, we have instruction and direction to guide us as we travel through the journey of time allotted to us.

The question is, will we follow the directions that are given to us?
