Have you ever been lost while on vacation? During the summer, many of us hit the road. It is always nice to get away and explore a new location. But whenever you go somewhere new, you do run the risk of getting lost. In what my kids call the “old days,” we would unfold a large paper map to find our way. Today, we enjoy the technology of our GPS, which gives us verbal, turn- by-turn instructions on how to get to our destination.
How thankful I am that in life we don’t have to guess where to go and what to do. Some people seek life advice in unusual and often unreliable places, but God’s Word is our perfect map, guiding us safely to our heavenly destination. As believers, we can know without any doubt that God is directing our path. The psalmist writes, “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life” (Ps. 143:8). Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” No matter how confusing life may get, no matter how far we may wander, God provides clear directions for us through the pages of His Word. Like headlights on our car, He enables us to see the road, mile after mile, guiding us safely home.
So, no matter where you go this summer, spend time in God’s Word. Tuck your copy of Today in the Word into your suitcase and enjoy meditating on His truth. If you happen to forget your copy of Today in the Word, remember that it is always available to you online at todayintheword.com. We would also be happy to send it to you every day in your inbox as an email.
