A Guide All the Way

A Guide All the Way
"He will be my guide even unto death."
(Psalm 48:14)

We need a guide.
 Sometimes we would give all that we have to be told exactly what to do and where to turn. 
We are willing to do right, but we do not know which one of two roads we are to follow. 
Oh, for a guide!

The Lord our God condescends to serve us as guide. 
He knows the way and will pilot us along it till we reach our journey's end in peace. 
Surely we do not desire more infallible direction. 
Let us place ourselves absolutely under His guidance, and we shall never miss our way. Let us make Him our God, and we shall find Him our guide. If we follow His law we shall not miss the right road of life, provided we first learn to lean upon Him in every step that we take.

Our comfort is that as He is our God forever and ever, He will never cease to be with us as our guide.
 "Even unto death" will He lead us, and then we shall dwell with Him eternally and go no more out forever. 
This promise of divine guidance involves lifelong security: salvation at once, guidance unto our last hour, and then endless blessedness.
 Should not each one seek this in youth, rejoice in it in middle life, and repose in it in old age? This day let us look up for guidance before we trust ourselves out-of-doors.

I’m ready to meet those who love me.

Proverbs 8:20-36 
The Voice (VOICE)

    I follow the way of right living.
        Follow me along the path to find justice;
    I’m ready to meet those who love me, bestow true riches upon them,
        and fill up their lives until their treasuries overflow.
    The Eternal created me; it happened when His work was beginning,
        one of His first acts long ago.
    Before time He established me,
        before the earth saw its first sunrise.
    I was born before the deep existed,
        before any springs poured out their water,
    Before the mountains were placed on their foundations,
        before the hills rolled across the land—
        yes, before all this, I was brought forth.
    When the earth was yet unformed and the fields were not yet nestled beneath the wind—
        even before the first dust of the earth—
    When He created the heavens, I was there.
        When He drew a circle in the deep, dividing the oceans and the sky, I was there.
    I was there when He established the sky.
        I was there when the springs in the deep were fortified;
    I witnessed Him lay down the shore as a boundary
        and put limits on the water
    And determine the foundations of the earth.
    All this time I was close beside Him, a master craftsman.
        Every day I was His delightful companion,
        celebrating every minute in His presence,
    Elated by the world He was making and all its fine creatures;
    I was especially pleased with humanity.

    So now listen to me, my children:
        those who live by my ways will find true happiness.
    Pay attention to my guidance, dare to be wise,
        and don’t disregard my teachings.
    The one who listens to me,
        who carefully seeks me in everyday things
        and delays action until my way is apparent, that one will find true happiness.
    For when he recognizes and follows me, he finds a peaceful and satisfying life
        and receives favor from the Eternal.
    But heed my warning: the one who goes against me will only hurt himself,
        for all who despise me are playing with fire and courting death.

Now that we are set right with God !

Now that we are set right with God by means of this sacrificial death, the consummate blood sacrifice, 
there is no longer a question of being at odds with God in any way.
 If, when we were at our worst, we were put on friendly terms with God by the sacrificial death of his Son,
 now that we’re at our best, just think of how our lives will expand and deepen by means of his resurrection life!
 Now that we have actually received this amazing friendship with God,
 we are no longer content to simply say it in plodding prose.
 We sing and shout our praises to God through Jesus, the Messiah!
Romans 5:10 MSG

God Himself Shall Work

God Himself Shall Work
"Now will I rise, saith the Lord; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself."
 (Isaiah 33:10)

When the spoilers had made the land as waste as if devoured by locusts, 
and the warriors who had defended the country sat down and wept like women, 
then the Lord came to the rescue.
 When travelers ceased from the roads to Zion,
 and Bashan and Carmel were as vineyards from which the fruit has failed, then the Lord arose.
 God is exalted in the midst of an afflicted people, for they seek His face and trust Him. 
He is still more exalted when in answer to their cries He lifts up Himself to deliver them and overthrow their enemies.

Is it a day of sorrow with us?
 Let us expect to see the Lord glorified in our deliverance. 
Are we drawn out in fervent prayer? 
Do we cry day and night unto Him? 
Then the set time for His grace is near. 
God will lift up Himself at the right season.
 He will arise when it will be most for the display of His glory. 
We wish for His glory more than we long for our own deliverance. 
Let the Lord be exalted, and our chief desire is obtained.

Lord, help us in such a way that we may see that Thou Thyself art working. 
May we magnify Thee in our inmost souls. 
Make all around us to see how good and great a God Thou art.
