Psalms 32:8 NLT The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.

God promises us guidance along the best pathway for our lives. He didn’t promise guidance along a pathway, but THE BEST pathway. So, any pathway we think of ourselves may be okay, but it’s not the best.

This promise doesn’t work unless we trust our Guide. If we think He’s intentionally leading us down a pathway that’s problematic, a pathway where there’s no joy, or a pathway where we must participate in strange rituals to be considered holy, we won’t trust Him. However, if we believe He’s our Creator Who knows what’s best for us and He’s taking us down a pathway that leads to the best results, we’ll benefit from His guidance.

God’s guidance is only for the believer through His Spirit (John 16:13). Everything He tells us is for our best interests. So, the next time He tells you to leave when the party is just getting started, only eat one slice of pie, or go to bed, don’t argue with Him. Follow His guidance because it’s leading us down the best pathway.
