His Guiding Hand

Isaiah 58:11

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.

As a parent, part of my job is to be a guiding force in my children’s lives. As hard as I try, at times I fail. But in this passage, we know that the Lord never fails. He is always there for us, to guide us at all times.

I need to go to God more often and accept His guiding hand in my life. If I try to do everything on my own, I am setting myself up for failure. I want to be like that watered garden, being saturated with God’s light and love.

I can only deal with the joys and burdens of parenthood if I let my Father take charge of my life. He is the ultimate guide – the One who is always there in good and bad times. He is there for us even when we don’t want to admit that we need His guidance.

Let God guide you and you will never go down the wrong path.
