There is one truth that every believer can count on…God is ready to guide you! His primary and first priority will be to guide us to a closer relationship with Him. But He also longs for us to come and seek His will for our lives and the decisions that we need to make. The Psalmist knew that his first priority was to ask God to draw him into the Almighty’s presence.

“The story of missions in more modern times tells of missionaries whose plans have been changed by the Holy Spirit. Judson wanted to go to India, but his course was changed and he went to Burma instead. When David Livingstone was twelve years of age, he read an appeal for missionaries to go to China and he decided to go.

His next decision was to be a medical missionary. With this in view, he began to complete his medical studies. About the time he was ready to go, the Opium War broke out and Englishmen could not go to China.

Robert Moffat was in England at that time telling of the South African mission. Livingstone was interested in Moffat’s story and said: “What is the use of waiting for the end of this abominable Opium War? I will go at once to Africa.” Thus the Holy Spirit led Livingstone to Africa and the dreadful slave trade was laid bare to the world.” —Mrs. A. L. Aulick

The Psalmist said: “Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling! Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy, and I will praise you with the lyre, O God, my God.” Psalm 43:3–4 (ESV)

God is ready to guide you to His presence!

God is ready to guide you at His altar!

God longs to speak to us through the avenue of prayer that He has provided for us. This desire to speak into our lives is what gives the Psalmist great joy! In response, praise and worship is a reflection of the grateful heart that recognizes the generosity of God! He has been so good to us by being approachable and responsive! He loves to be with those who love to be with Him!

Earlier in the Psalms, a prayer is written that conveys the true believer’s heart. “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.” Psalm 25:4–5 (ESV)

Our prayer should always be, “God I want to know your more.” To know that heart and mind of God is the most important priority we have in this life. When we position ourselves to hear and know the voice of God, we will be guided by His Spirit. God is ready to guide you…Are you ready to receive it?

Take time to pray, spend time in the Bible, and listen. He will speak to you!
