Bits and Pieces: Instruction

"Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose," (Psalm 25:12).

* To fear the LORD is to reverence Him, keenly aware of His holy presence at all times. Implied in such an attitude is the continual desire to obey His every prompting. To such a sensitive heart as this, the LORD will unfailingly communicate His counsel.

* It is not everyone who is privy to the counsel of the most high God. Still, though no one deserves such privilege, He has chosen to reveal His heart to His children. To the one who reverences His Name, who seeks His face, who yearns to obey, to this one He has promised instruction and guidance.

* Though many voices offer counsel relating to daily decisions, and particularly major ones, the believer's prime Source for guidance is the Lord, through prayer and His Word. And, as we reverence Him through daily sensitivity to His Spirit, He has promised instruction and guidance. Oh, that our every choice would be made in the fear of the LORD!
