Today I drove out on the country lanes to get to the school I’ve been working in this week. Every time I get to a particular intersection something unusual happens – the voice of my satnav says, “Take a sharp left” but the map indicates to turn right. It’s very confusing. The first time I followed the voice and got completely lost; the second time I followed the map and reached my destination.
Often in life we hear conflicting messages and we don’t know who to believe. We don’t know where to turn next. The good thing is that God can guide us.
Isaiah 30:21 says, “Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ” This is the way, walk in it, ” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left”
If we ask God, He will guide us always. There may be a clamour of voices, but the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit is all we need to hear.
