Daily D – Psalm 48:14
Psalm 48:14 “This God, our God forever and ever—he will always lead us.” (CSB)
Always and forever—how many songs through the years have used this declaration regarding the love of a man and a woman? How many singers who sang such words also sang breakup songs?
When God sings to those he loves, it is always and forever with an Always and Forever love. Any breakups are the responsibility of the man or woman who walks away from him.
God’s commitment to us has been demonstrated throughout history. So too has been human inability to live completely faithful lives.
Our Father in heaven will lead us forever and ever. He will always lead us. The only question is whether we will follow. This is a good question for a Monday. It is a good question every day.
Here in front of me, just below my computer screen, is an annual calendar. Each date that has passed so far this year has a circle around it or an X through it. The X indicates that I followed well that day. The circle indicates a day when I took a detour. Thankfully, there are many more dates with an X than otherwise.
Is today a circle or an X day? A big part of the outcome is determined by what we decide right now. Our Father in heaven is ready to lead the way. Are you ready to follow?
I will follow our Father in heaven wherever he leads me today.
Our Father, show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Amen.

Jeremiah 35:12-14 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the Lord. ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me.”
Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.
Jeremiah 23:20-22 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
