The Right Direction

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

Daniel Boone was known for his many adventures in the Cumberland Mountains, especially helping people find their way through the Cumberland Gap [a low point in the Cumberland Mountains near where the states of Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia all meet]. Someone once asked him if he had ever be lost. He answered, “No, I’ve never been lost, but I was confused once for about three days!” 

It’s too bad he didn’t have a compass, it certainly would have helped. We humans need a compass too. Christ followers have found it in the Bible. It asserts that man is LOST and needs to find his way back to God. In its pages you’ll find the proclamation of God’s plan to seek out and save  His children. 

Sure, the Bible was written over a period of sixteen centuries by at least forty authors - beginning with Moses in the Sinai Desert and ending with John on Patmos, an island off the coast of present-day Turkey - but it has a central cord that holds it together: God’s passion and plan to save His children. 

What a great truth! To understand the purposes of God as written in Scripture, is to set your compass in the right direction. Calibrated correctly, your journey will be safe. Follow an uncalibrated compass and who knows where your journey will end!

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. Proverbs 14:12
