We all need a guiding light. A star of guidance to lead us in our lives. By keeping God as our guiding star we will know how to put one foot in front of the other on our daily path. To walk in the way of peace we must follow Him wholeheartedly, like the “Wise Men” did 2000 years ago.
If we drift slightly from following His lead, we’re on a slippery slope for disaster. We will still be able to see Him, just a bit, for a while…but as we drift, eventually we lose sight of Him altogether, and once again be lost in the darkness. We all have lived in darkness and know how that feels. Veering even a few degrees of course takes us far from Him. The most important thing at that point is to realize and accept that we have lost our way. If we are humble enough, we can call out to Him for help. He will hear our cry and come to our rescue…leading us back on the path of Peace to develop the Mind of Christ.
Today, like the Wise Men did on the eve of Christ’s birth, look for that star of guidance in your life provided by our true and living God…and be willing to following wherever He may lead you. He is the light from on high…the ultimate Lighthouse that illuminates your way. But also identify a false light, something in your life that is leading you astray. Commit to turning from it and let the true light led you. WITHIN REACH helps you identify and turn from those false stars we all get tricked by.

Dear Father, I long to follow my guiding star, which is You, my God and Lord. I believe that You are the way…the only way. I need the light of Your presence; for as You know my Lord, I live in a cold, dark world. Please lead me on Your path of Peace. I pray in the name of Your greatest gift, Jesus Christ; and all God’s children said – AMEN!
Through the tender mercy of our God, With which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace.”
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
