Facing the Wrong Direction?

“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.” Psalm 105:1

“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.” James 3:17

“My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;…” Proverbs 2:1-7

Needing answers? Trying to make a decision? Having trouble figuring out what to do? Feeling confused? Wondering if you’re headed in the wrong direction? Or the right direction? Or not headed in any direction at all? Stuck? Unclear? Wondering which way to turn? Is it possible you’re facing the wrong direction?

When we’re at a crossroads, and we sense it’s time to move forward, but we can’t figure out the next step, we can find ourselves turning toward the world. Or turning toward the Lord. We can face the wrong direction. Or we can face the right direction. We can go to the well of the world in search of answers. Or we can go to the well of the Lord. We can seek the world’s wisdom. Or we can search for the Lord’s wisdom. The world offers endless counsel, endless possibilities, endless advice, endless wisdom. Worldly wisdom. But there is only one full-proof, absolutely right way to go. The way of the Lord. In pursuit of the Lord Jesus Christ. In pursuit of God’s will. In pursuit of God’s ways. In pursuit of His Word. In pursuit of loving and obeying and serving and worshiping Christ.

If you’re facing the world, friend, you’re facing the wrong direction. Turn around and face the Lord. Cry out to Him. Seek Him for His direction. Seek Him for His wisdom. Seek Him for His love, mercy, grace, hope, joy, and strength. Dig deep into His Word. Ask Him if you’re His follower to fill you with His Spirit. Again and again. To be filled continually with His Spirit. Trust Him to speak to your heart.

And follow Him faithfully. Don’t follow the world and its wisdom. Follow Jesus and His. Live for Him. He will direct your steps. Now and forever. Let Him direct your path!

If you’re not Christ’s follower, turn from your sins, believe Jesus is the Son of God and is Lord, that He died on the cross to pay your sin punishment and was raised from the dead, and turn your life now and forever over to God and His ways. Ask Him to give you the gift of His Holy Spirit. Commit your life utterly to Him!
