Read Isaiah 28:1 through 30:33
Before the advent of global positioning system navigational help, drivers relied on maps and road signs to get somewhere unfamiliar.
Many times, a motorist will write down the verbal directions someone gives him, and off he goes. A little farther down the road, he may start to question whether or not he heard correctly or if he made a wrong turn somewhere. As he desperately looks for an indication that he’s going in the right direction, he might see a sign that assures him he’s on the correct road—the red barn where he’s been told to turn left or a sign that tells him his destination is just two miles down the road.
God and His Word give us signs that we’re on the right road to pleasing Him.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21).
Although we probably won’t hear an audible voice, we can safely base our lives on God’s Word.
Challenge for Today: God’s Word—don’t leave home without it.
Quicklook: Isaiah 30:19–26

God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
