Bible Study: Christian Women & Pastors Wives, I am His Sheep, Part 3
We are foolish when we think we can guide ourselves through the mazes of life. Our vision is imperfect, our judgment is immature, we can see such a small part of our surroundings and cannot properly interpret these. Our need is for One whose vision and judgment are perfect, who knows our circumstances and the circumstances of others, that we may
ask Him to guide us.
To frightened passengers on an ocean steamer who feared because they saw only the fog about them, the chief mate said: “You need not be the least uneasy. The fog extends only to a certain height above the water, and the captain is at the masthead, up above the fog, and it is he who is directing the vessel!”
There is no reason to be uneasy when we put ourselves in the hands of Him who sees above and beyond the fogs and clouds of life. He knows the way we take and He will make plain our pathway before us.
God’s guidance is given to those who read His Word, who pray to Him, not merely once a day, but who are always in communion with Him. The way may never seem to be made plain very far ahead, but God makes it plain sufﬁciently far ahead to enable His people to plant their steps ﬁrmly and conﬁdently. When they need it, more light will be given.
Christians often rebel as God shows them the way they are to take. They think their own way would be better, but it is only as they yield their judgment to God’s loving wisdom that their lives become ﬁlled with peace and joy.

Be blessed in The Name above every name, Jesus! I know I am!
