Because He is our Guide

Ps. 48:14 (KJV) For this God is our God forever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Once we chose our Creator as our stronghold, our Lord and surrender our everything to him, it becomes his business to protect and guide us. We become his close interest and he takes pleasure to do for us the planning and leading of our lives henceforth. Most of the times we struggle because we do not trust Him with our lives we want to struggle stirring our own lives yet claim to have surrendered all. I like the Hymn:

       “Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, Pilgrim through this barren land;
        I am weak, but Thou art mighty; Hold me with Thy powerful hand;
        Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more,
        Feed me till I want no more
By giving ourselves to God we are acknowledging we are not able to save ourselves we cannot control our lives, were not in control, we do not know what He want of us in life; so we give him charge over our affairs.  “. .Holy Spirit was given to abide with us forever, to be our leader and our guide. He aks us to trust Him, and commit ourselves into His keeping. The Holy Spirit is constantly at work, teaching, reminding, testifying, coming to the soul as a divine comforter, convincing of sin as an appointed judge and guide.”  E.G. White {SW, October 25, 1898} Before Jesus left he assured his disciples that he will not leave them as orphans, he will give them a helper a guide a comforter –the Holy Spirit. We are always reminded a right choice by this spirit , we are warned of dangers by the same spirit, we are given power to testify and perform our mission by the same spirit. He is our constant companion.  A long as we do not abandon the spirit we will be guided and thus do God’s will. Denying the spirit an opportunity to perform its duty we remain vulnerable to the guidance of the evil agents, and cannot prevail against such on our own.

“And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.  And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places:  thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:11, 12 (KJV)

This guidance promised us is like a gift to us for choosing Him. We only need confidence in his leading and allow God to be in control of our lives then we shall have nothing to fear and will have no failures.  Success is a guaranteed in Jesus Christ.

  1. It looks like tow Biblical figures are mixed up here. You start telling that Jehovah God is our Guide and suddenly you end up by saying success is guaranteed in Jesus Christ without mentioning that this son of God gave his life for all sinners.
