The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.Psalm 32:8
The Best Path
What a great promise from the Lord! He will guide us and show us the path for our lives. He will advise us in the way we should go and watch over us. He is such a good caretaker over us. Why would we want to try and do things ourselves? Why would we try and plan out our own lives? Yet, even though we know that God can care for us and knows the best path for our lives, we still try to take things into our own hands.
This Psalm of David is a conversation between David and the Lord. The verse before (in verse 7) says, “For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory.” David hid himself in the Lord and knew that in Him he would find protection and victory. Verse 8 is God’s response to David. When we hide ourselves in Him as David did, we will find protection, guidance, and ultimately victory.
A Prayer to Remember
You are my protection. You are my way of life. In you I find victory. Thank you Lord for always watching over me. Amen.
