The focus is on God showing himself in everyday moments. Each week I'll add a new devotional which connects God's word to everyday life. I encourage you to write your thoughts as well so we can dialogue as a community.

Have You Ever Heard of the Street Called 'Straight'?

you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you,
saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it’. Isaiah 30:21 (NIV)
I have a new friend.She always has a smiley face. She causes me to sing… “I can go anywhere . . . .”Her name is Waze. Maybe you’ve met?She’s thenavigation system on my iPhone. (And I never yell at her the way my
friend Janie yells at hers.)
I just want to say. . . I have so much more confidence now
when I travel unknown routes.I don’t
even mind traveling alone because Waze promises I’m “never alone on the road
anymore”. Waze gives me confidence
because I trust her guidance. We're so blessed with these savvy gadgets.
God has always been into “guidance”. And He
never leaves His children alone. It's good to remind ourselves of this. God is a marvelous God!
Abraham and Moses were guided by God to new lands; Jesus was
led by the Spirit into the wilderness; Ananias was directed to go into Damascus
to the very street called “Straight” to find Saul.(I just love that story.)
Lord said, "Go over to Straight Street, to the house of Judas. When you get there, ask for a man from Tarsus
named Saul. He is praying to me right
now. Acts 9:11 (N LT)
Awesome. And He even knew that Saul was praying!
If we seek Him, God will guide us too.We can have faith that He knows the way that we should take, and He
wants to lead us.
told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the
Father except through me.John 14:6 (NLT)
Yes, Satan will try to get us lost on some side
streets.And sometimes something flashy
(worldly) will catch our eye and cause us to change course.It’s often necessary to turn around and get
back on the right path.
If we’ll listen to the still small voice of conscience,
the Holy Spirit within, or the faithful guidance of Christian friends, and
follow God’s Holy Word, we can stay on the right way.
If we’d let God have control, we’ll arrive safely at our
destinations time and time again.
There’s no need to worry.God knows the beginning to the end.He knows the way.
Thank you all for visiting Write Moments with God, and thank you for bearing with
my little tongue in cheek.We have a marvelous God—He thought of
everything we’d ever need ages ago.I
pray you’ll allow Him to direct your steps today.
