“The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn” — David Russel, Scottish classical Guitarist-

Decision to make?

The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make; for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful. – Colossians 3:15 (Good News Translation)

God is the only one who knows the future, ask him to give peace for the right choice (and/or discomfort for the wrong).

“I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go” – Isaiah 6:8-9a

Seeing a need and volunteering is every bit a valid anointing and call from God.

It gives him pleasure when we respond without waiting to be told — being “guided by his eye”1 — responding from a willing heart without need for command.

Don’t we desire the same from others?  My sweet wife seldom asks and would never tell me to get her more cola but sometimes she will say, to no one in particular, “Oh! My glass is empty!” When I or one of the children say, “I’ll get you some!” she feels loved.

Prayer:Father, help me to be so in love with you that I can see what is dear to your heart and volunteer to help. Amen!
Sound Bite: God’s call is valid whether you were “sent” or just “went”!

Better Guidance

I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, … whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle” – Psalm 32:8b-9a,c

Sorry, but this verse reminds me of a scene from the movie “Men In Black” — let me tell you how.

An alien was hiding under a table in the morgue while an unsuspecting Mr. Smith, a Special Agent, interviews the doctor.   Trying to warn the agent without getting herself killed, Dr. Weaver kept looking in the alien’s direction — the doctor was trying to guide agent Smith with her eyes but he wasn’t alert enough to get it.

In our passage God is saying his guidance is with his eyes, so it requires a certain alertness on our part.   Instead of having to be jerked around like a horse or mule God wants us to be sensitive to his subtle painless guidance.

Sound Bite:Don’t be like a mule, let God guide you with his eyes – it’s less painful.

Prayer:Father, help me to be so close to you that I can be guided by your eye. Amen
