Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory.
Psalm 73:23-24 (ESV)
Who is your guide through life? Is God the one that holds your hand and guides you, or is it someone or something else. The psalmist speaks of a very intimate relationship with God in these verses. A father and child relationship. Together continuously, holding hands and being guided. All this with the hope of living in glory with the father.
Seeking others as our source, and guide to what is best in this life takes us away from the relationship that provides all that is necessary for our existence here. God has always wanted to be our all in all, and has done everything to make that possible for us. But, it is we that do not spend the time needed to have that relationship.
When we turn to Him for all the answers we will be far better off than if we were continue to go it on our own. If our goal is to be with God where He is, we need to have Him here with us where we are now. We need His guidance and His counsel for a good life.
Today, can you confidently state what the Psalmist did? If not, begin to trust in Him as your guide and counsel. Look forward to the day when He will receive you into glory, because you walked with Him here.
