17 This is what the Lord says—
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go. Isaiah 48:17
The Lord knows what is best for us. Each and every day He desires to lead and guide us one step at a time. Where we often make a mistake is we try to navigate this life in our own strength and wisdom.
Our strength is limited and always falls short. Our wisdom is short sighted and cannot see beyond today. When we navigate life according to God’s strength and His wisdom we will overcome all things.
We must remember that the Lord is God and we are not. When we make the decision to make Jesus Lord and Savior, He becomes Lord of our lives. That means that He is Lord of every decision. It means that the dreams we have for our future are laid before His throne and the purpose of our lives simply becomes His will.
To Lord tells us not to rely on our own understanding. Life is simply a series of decisions that take place on a daily basis. When those decisions are made according to the leading of the Lord His will naturally is accomplished in our lives.
