You Can Believe It

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:1-2

A man who lived in northern Michigan went for a walk in a densely forested area. When darkness began to settle in, he decided it was time to head for home. He was familiar with hiking in the woods and felt he had a keen sense of direction, so he didn’t bother to look at his compass.

However, after walking for a long time, he decided he’d better check it. He was surprised to see that the compass indicated he was going west – not east as he had thought. He was so sure of his own sense of direction that he concluded there must be something wrong with the compass.

He was about to throw the compass away in disgust when this thought came to him: My compass has never lied to me yet – maybe I should believe it.

He chose to follow its direction and soon found his way out of the woods and back home.

Friend, God’s Word will never lie to you. You can believe it. Follow its direction, and you will always wind up where you need to be.

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
