-OUR GUIDE THROUGH LIFE
Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting. Your are God.
The next time you are near a lake or a seashore, spend some time observing the movements of sailboats on the water. Though some larger sailboats have small motors to use in case of an emergency, for normal use, they are totally dependent on the wind. Their pilots can change the direction of the boat to a degree, but it is the wind that is in charge.
Sailboats existed for thousands of years before the apostle Peter's day; as a fisherman, he know the value and power of the wind. So when he wrote about how God inspired the Old Testament prophets to write their books, he used an image akin to sailing. "men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. Just as the wind carries a sailboat, so the Holy Spirit has the power and source behind the writers of Scripture. But the same image applies to our daily life as Christians. When we are filled with and yielded to the Spirit. He is the power who silently guides us through life. Yet, our hand is on the rudder, but it is the wind of the Spirit that fills our sail.
Trust Him to guide and empower you.
