Today’s Scripture: My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways. Proverbs 23:26 ESV
God’s ways are the ways to lasting delight. Proverbs 23 shares many of the dead end ways the world directs us. If we give our hearts and eyes to the ways of the world, we find temporary pleasures that rob us of lasting joy.
I have followed almost all of the wrong paths we are warned about; selfish ambition, envy, desire for wealth, drunkenness and gluttony, and sexual impurity. Where do those ways end up? Well, you know don’t you?
When our eyes and hearts are looking to God we find lasting joy instead of fleeting pleasures. God still directs us each day if we look to Him. The Israelites looked to the cloud by day and the fire by night. Are we looking for His signs as we step forward?
Are we turning our hearts and eyes to Him right now to follow His ways? It is there we find delight and eternal joy.
Today’s Prayer: Father God thank You for Your ways. My eyes and my heart are looking to You for direction. I know true joy and delight that lasts is found in You. Thank You for carrying me this far and for showing Your ways that give joys the world can not. I am looking to You LORD, show me Your ways. Amen
