Daily Devotional February 7 - God leads the way

"Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go."  Isaiah 48:17

Don't get confused by those who have not found their way, trying to lead the way. God leads and God teaches as we permit. In this verse God says "by the way thou shouldest go" inferring that you can certainly go another way. It's not difficult at all to go another way; just don't be who God says you are and don't do things God's way. It's also not difficult to go the God way either; just be who God says you are and follow the leading of the Spirit of God.

Have you been taught to profit? Is God mistaken? Sometimes the truth of a matter is so simple we complicate right past it.
God gives us a simple straight path and we look for a labyrinth.
God gives us simple instruction and we call out for a king.
God leads the way by a small still voice and we listen for a loud clanking sound.
God provides for us all that we need and we search in vain through multiple credit cards and purchase what is not ours.
God gives us proof of Him and we look to the din of others to fill our minds with the science of doubt.
Be receptive to the teaching of God and see His mighty hand working out in three weeks what you have been striving at for years.
