“I know, O Lord, that a man’s way is not in himself, Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.” Jeremiah 10:23 (NASB)
We often look at the words written by the prophets which God used to bring messages and guide His people. Today we look again as words given to us through Jeremiah who lived with the people who were left in Jerusalem after most were taken captive to Babylon. The prophet lived in close touch with God and he had come to know that God was involved in the events of his life. He knew that allowing God to guide him every day was the best way to live. This is true for us today. The lesson is to be applied to each of us for that is God's desire in our lives. Our Lord wants us to recognize that He is in control of the universe and in control of the events in our lives. He wants us to trust Him each day and allow Him to direct our steps as we walk.
