Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye on you.
Need direction in life? Not sure of the way of Salvation? God is willing to teach, instruct and guide you.
The promise in this text is God's provision for those who are willing to receive Him by faith and follow His leading.
Let's listen to what God says He will do if we are willing to be taught by Him and follow Him. (1) I will instruct you, (2) I will teach you in the way you should go, (3) I will counsel you with my eyes on you.
It is the Lord's desire to teach His children in the way in which He would have them to go. His way of submission and obedience to His Word and His authority.
As a believer, we MUST seek and obey with humility, live in holiness, daily walk in integrity, be honest in our dealings with one another and faithful to God and the task that He has assigned to our hands, just to name a few.
No, God did not saved us to live life as we please. There is a standardof living for the Christian in which God has established for us to live by in His Word.
Direction is important for without it we get lost. Many are lost today because they refuse to be taught by God, but instead by self, they refuse to go the way in which God has already mapped out for us in His Word and they refuse to be counsel by God and be guided by God's eyes, but instead, they chose to be instructed and guided by what their eyes sees in the world and follow after that counsel.
Man can instruct, but it is only God through His Holy Spirit who can make us understand truth for God says "I will make thee understand that which shall be done by me."
As God continues to teach and instruct us in the way of salvation, He promises to keep a watchful eye on us. He will not leave us to ourselves for He knows without His direction and His watchful eyes upon us, like sheep, we will stray away from the path of righteousness.
Looking for direction in life? Not sure about how to travel down the road of Salvation once you have accepted Christ? Get in the Word of God, pray and seek the Lord's face for He promises to teach, instruct and keep a watchful eye over you.
