Don't Get Lost


Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105

Every year so many people get lost in the wilderness while camping.  They either don't have a map and compass, or they don't know how to use those tools.  Many people are the same way when it comes to navigating life.  God gave us the Bible to show the way, but too often people either don't own one or they don't even open it to find out what it says.  Every situation that could possibly come up has been covered.  Don't be too proud or too busy to ask God for directions.  All paths do NOT lead to God--at least not the one, true God.

Blessed is the one
who trusts in the Lord,
who does not look to the proud,
to those who turn aside to false gods.
Psalm 40:4

Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. And now we believe and know that you are the Holy One who has come from God.”  John 6:68-69

Whatever is, has already been, and whatever will be, already is. God repeats what has passed.  Ecclesiastes 3:15

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.  Proverbs 16:18

Thus says the LORD: “Stand in the ways and see,
And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,
And walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’" Jeremiah 6:16

Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:26-27

Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.  Matthew 7:13

But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. For you happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.  2 Corinthians 11:3-4
