The 3-fold promise of God.
Walking through uncertainty is a part of life. We can try to avoid it, but eventually we will have no choice. We will have to walk through uncertain territory.
The uncertainty we experience may be caused by events outside our control or decisions we have made. Either way, the Lord will stick with us.
Psalm 32:8 states, “The Lord says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” Here we find a 3-fold promise from the Lord.
Instruct his children.
The Lord promises to guide us on the best pathway for our lives. This means…
- God will direct us in the way we should go.
- He is willing to help us stay on the straight path that leads to fellowship with him.
- Through his word, God gives us accurate counsel.
- He leads us with gentleness and trustworthiness. This makes us feel safe.
Give us wisdom.
Through his word, the Lord will guide us. He will help us make the best possible decision. James encourages us to request wisdom and says the Lord will generously give wisdom to us.
Watch over us.
The Bible says the Lord will watch over our coming and going, both now and forever more. Psalm 121 says the Lord will not allow our foot to slip. He will watch over us as we take life’s journey.
Life is filled with uncertainty. Recent days have magnified this truth; however, the Lord’s promise is still the same. He guides us, though it may not always make sense.
Life may not always make sense, but we can rest assured God knows the plan. Psalm 32 goes on to say unfailing love surrounds those who trust the Lord.
