The God Who Will Guide You

Charles Spurgeonby Charles Spurgeon

“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go.”

Here the Lord is the speaker, and gives the psalmist an answer to his prayer. Our Saviour is our instructor. The Lord himself deigns to teach his children to walk in the way of integrity, his holy word and the monitions of the Holy Spirit are the directors of the believer’s daily conversation. We are not pardoned that we may henceforth live after our own lusts, but that we may be educated in holiness and trained for perfection. A heavenly training is one of the covenant blessings which adoption seals to us:

“All thy children shall be taught by the Lord.”

Practical teaching is the very best of instruction, and they are thrice happy who, although they never sat at the feet of Gamaliel, and are ignorant of Aristotle, and the ethics of the schools, have nevertheless learned to follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth.

“I will guide thee with mine eye.”

As servants take their cue from the master’s eye, and a nod or a wink is all that they require, so should we obey the slightest hints of our Master, not needing thunderbolts to startle our incorrigible sluggishness, but being controlled by whispers and love touches. The Lord is the great overseer, whose eye in providence overlooks everything. It is well for us to be the sheep of his pasture, following the guidance of his wisdom.

The Secret Of The Kiddushin

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

There are many different ideas as to what holiness is: not going to the movies, going to church, not dancing, not being part of the world, etc. But the Hebrew word for holy is kadosh. From that same word comes the word kiddushin, the Hebrew betrothal ceremony. The bridegroom and bride share a cup of wine together, sealing their pledge and consecration to each other. Messiah is the Bridegroom of our soul. We’re in the time called the kiddushin, headed to the marriage supper of the Lamb. He pledged Himself to us and He shares the cup of wine as in communion, just like the bride and groom share the cup of pledging. True holiness is kiddushin- to be pledged to Messiah, devoted to Him, doing everything for Him because of what He did for you. Messiah gave you His kiddushin; His devotion and pledge and His all, His everything for you so that you would do the same. It’s a ll about love— the love of the bride for the Bridegroom and the Bridegroom for the bride. That’s kiddushin and that’s what holiness is really all about.

Today’s Mission – Today, seek true holiness. Seek the kiddushin. Receive in your heart the pledge of the Bridegroom and give to the Bridegroom the pledge of your heart.
