Signposts, Life-maps and directions - Lent 19

Everyday we move past various signs and signposts. Perhaps they tell us street names or what our maximum speed should be or perhaps they even advertise some random product. 

David argues that God also has many signposts for us to take notice of. They show us the right road to travel or which directions to take. They point us in the godly direction, amidst a world of other enticing choices. These "directions" of God are perfect and they pull our lives together. 

"The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road. The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy. The directions of God are plain and easy on the eyes. God 's reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee. The decisions of God are accurate down to the nth degree." -  (Psalm 19:7-9 MSG)

God's signposts can be trusted because his reputation is flawless. We know that he won't lead us astray with his directions.

Look for God's signposts in the Bible and then follow them.

Living in grace
