The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me], I shall not want.
— Psalm 23:1 (AMP)
If we want to reach our goals or find success in life, it is essential that we follow God’s lead.
There will always be people who offer us advice. Some of it may be good, but much of it may not. Or it may be good advice but simply at the wrong time, or it may be advice that will not work for us. It’s important that we always look to God first and listen for His guidance and instruction.
God has created us as unique individuals, and He does not lead all of us in the same way. God has a different, unique, individual plan for each of us. So, if you want to win your race, you will need to find your own running style.
Of course, we can learn from other people, but we dare not try to copy them at the cost of losing our own individuality. Appreciate the advice and example of others, but in your quiet time with God, ask Him for His guidance and follow the promptings He gives you.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, today I ask that You help me follow your lead. Help me find the best path for me while keeping my eyes steadfastly on You, amen.
