Get Your Directions First
Have you ever stopped and asked for directions and it didn’t help. You were still lost. When you’re on a long journey, you want to get your directions right from the start. You don’t want to waste any time going the wrong way. You don’t want to make a wrong turn because ultimately you’ll pay for it by losing time and energy. One wrong turn and you’re off track.
So in the Lord, you don’t want to make wrong turns. You don’t want to proceed down a wrong course because you’ll have to pay for that sin, that mistake, that jumping ahead. It will take you off track and away from your destination, and you’ll have to get back on. So save yourself the problem. Wait until you know it’s God’s will. If you’re feeling uneasy, don’t do it. If there’s a question, don’t go there. Stop, get the direction right. Go in righteousness and don’t mess up your journey with sin, because it takes a lot longer to get back on track than to not go off in the first place.
Proverbs 3:6 ... In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Psalm 23:3 ... He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Hebrews 12:13 ... And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. ❤
