March 18 – Psalms 32:8

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.”

Psalm 32:8

Imagine the apostles as they watched Jesus ascend up into Heaven. They were probably scared out of their minds, hopeless, anxious, wondering what their future would hold. They weren’t exactly sure what to do, so they prayed, and prayed, and prayed some more. Then God sent His spirit to them to comfort them and lead them. From then on, we see the Holy Spirit leading the Apostles and giving them the strength and confidence to start the early church. In John 16, before Jesus goes to the cross, He told His disciples that He was sending His spirit to guide us into all truth. This is the promise in Psalm 32:8. God will not only be with us, but He will instruct us and teach us in the way we should go. We don’t have to fear our future. When we are open to being lead, God will lead us through His spirit.
