Men’s Devotion – Commit thy Way
Psalm 37:4–5 “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”
Before the days of modern navigational aids, a traveler made the Atlantic crossing in a boat equipped with two compasses. One was fixed to the deck where the man at the wheel could see it. The other compass was fastened upon one of the masts, and often a sailor would be seen climbing up to inspect it.
The passenger asked the captain, “Why do you have two compasses?”
“This is an iron vessel,” replied the captain, “and the compass on the deck is often affected by its surroundings. Such is not the case with the compass at the masthead; that one is above the influence. We steer by the compass above.”
With the various advice available to us today it seems that everyone is an “expert”. If you need guidance or advice it is easy to do a quick search on Google, and browse through the search results for the answer you are looking for.
However, there is a higher source of guidance that is available to the Christian. As biblical men, we must faithfully rely upon the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit to guide and direct our lives. Our own understanding is limited, but he knows the end from the beginning.
Proverbs 3:5–6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
