A Compass for Life's Journey - Proverbs 3

If you've ever been lost in the woods, you know the concerns, confusion, and panic this situation causes. Now think what a difference it would have made to know that a compass was in your pocket.

Spiritually speaking, we have such a compass-God's Word. But it does no good unless we let it guide us. Yet at times, we may fail to follow its direction because of...

1. Neglect. Sometimes we are so busy walking through life that we forget to look at God's compass to make sure we're headed in the right direction.

2. Pride. Oftentimes we want to determine the destiny ourselves. Relying on our own strength, understanding, and abilities, we plan our own route.

3. Distractions. God's path of obedience isn't always easy. In fact, sometimes it can be extremely challenging. Satan offers other trails that promise pleasure and ease if we will just ignore the compass and follow him. Although these trails seem pleasant at first, they lead to heartbreak and discouragement.

4. Difficulties. Whenever obstacles appear on the trail, our natural tendency is to try and find a way around them. But by ignoring God's compass and stepping off the path, we'll miss the blessings He wants to give us through the rough patches - strong faith and godly character.

Why should we wander when the Lord's compass is available? Let Scripture be your guide on life's journey. God promises to give you productive days and fruitful years if you follow His path. He'll direct each step of your way, and His peace will sustain you, even during the difficult times.
