The promise of God's guidance and counsel
"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
These words from Psalm 32:8 remind us that God is always with us, watching over us and leading us in the way we should go, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you".
What does it mean for God to instruct and teach us in the way we should go? It means that he is with us every step of the way, providing us with the wisdom and guidance we need to navigate the challenges and opportunities of life. It means that he is patient and loving as he leads us, always seeking our good and his glory.
But these words also remind us that God's guidance and counsel are rooted in his love for us. He is not a distant or disinterested observer, but rather he is deeply invested in our lives. His guidance is not based on his own needs or agendas, but rather it is based on his perfect knowledge of us and his plans for our lives.
Pray with us
Let us seek God's guidance and counsel as we navigate the challenges and opportunities of daily life. May we trust in his wisdom and love, and may we give thanks for his faithfulness and guidance. Amen.
