“He who has mercy on them will lead them … I will make each of My mountains a road, and My highways shall be elevated”
Isaiah 49:10-11

The problems of life we are facing in these days of Lockdown can seem so hurtful to so many especially those who have lost loved ones and close friends. We can feel so alone and powerless as we grapple with the decisions we need to make in these difficult days, To guard ourselves and families from this Pandemic is a daily task and it will not end soon from what we have been advised.

How can we know God’s will in these situations?

How can we make the right decisions and avoid mistakes?

When faced with such crossroads, how do we know which path to take?

As we face these choices, the Bible assures us that God wants us to Seek Him and Turn to Him for the guidance we need and then we do all need to trust Him to GUIDE us on this difficult journey.

God promised Isaiah that He would guide His people “even by the springs of water” v. 10. They might have seen nothing but obstacles and mountains that seem impassable, but God promised to “make each of My mountains a road.” What a mighty God!

His Word also tells us that He promises to GUIDE us by His Holy Spirit (read John 14:26). He will guide us through His peace (Please Read Philippians 4:7-9).

As we seek Him and fill our hearts and minds with His Word, He will give us wisdom and understanding. As He promised David, He will “instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; with my eye on you, I will give counsel” Psalm 32:8

Lets all of us make a commitment to pray about every situation that we are all facing in these days and be guided by God’s Word and His Holy Spirit and TRUST the Lord to see us through for which we are to give Him all the Glory.

Its time to sing that great Hymn of the Faith with me:
Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but Thou art mighty,
Hold me with Thy powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,
Feed me now and evermore;
Feed me now and evermore.
Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliv’rer, strong Deliv’rer,
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield;
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.
When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death and hell’s Destruction,
Land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to Thee;
I will ever give to Thee.
In the Love of the Lord Jesus,
John and Barbara
