Friends in Christ Weekly Message
March 4, 2006
God is fair and just;
He corrects the misdirected,
Sends them in the right direction.
He gives the rejects his hand,
And leads them step-by-step.
From now on every road you travel
Will take you to God.
Follow the Covenant signs;
Read the charted directions.
Psalm 25:8-10 (Message*)
God is fair and just, but not so in a way that shuts off those headed the wrong way. Rather, God corrects us and sends us in the right direction. He leads the rejects step-by-step, holding their hands. What a beautiful word picture of how God corrects and leads us like a tender and loving parent!
When we are led by God, our paths take us to God although they may seem strange at times. We just have to follow the signs God gives us, letting Him direct us.
Do you allow God to gently correct you and turn you in the right direction? When God's leadings send you down unfamiliar and strange paths, do you have confidence that it is the right direction?
