Show Me

I remember learning the story behind the “show me state” of Missouri. The story made me smile. I am a bit like that when I don’t fully understand a concept or an explanation – just show me.  There are times when I need the Lord to show me the way to go.  According to Isaiah, this happened to the Egyptians as well. Check this out…

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
20 This will be a sign and a witness to the Lord All-Powerful in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to the Lord for help, he will send someone to save and defend them. He will rescue them from those who hurt them.
21 So the Lord will show himself to the Egyptians, and then they will know he is the Lord. They will worship God and offer many sacrifices. They will make promises to the Lord and will keep them.22 The Lord will punish the Egyptians, but then he will heal them. They will come back to the Lord, and he will listen to their prayers and heal them. (Isaiah 19:20-22 NCV)

There are times that I just need the Lord to show Himself to me. I’ve seen Him Show up and Show off in certain situations. I’ve felt His presence next to me in difficult circumstances. I believe that He is able to show me the way to go no matter where I find myself.  I guess I’m saying I can’t do this on my own. I need Him to guide me. I need Him to protect me every step of this journey.

Pressing On!
