The Lord Shall Guide Thee Continually

Every Sunday, join me here as I leave the words to those who have come before me – inspired writers from the Bible as well as others who followed in their footsteps. I pray the portions of Scripture, commentaries, and songs you find here will bless you as they have me.

Isaiah 58:11

“The Lord shall guide thee.’ Not an angel, but Jehovah shall guide thee. Observe the adverb continually. We are not merely to be guided sometimes, but we are to have a perpetual monitor; not occasionally to be left to our own understanding, and so to wander, but we are continually to hear the guiding voice of the Great Shepherd; and if we follow close at His heels, we shall not err, but be led by a right way to a city to dwell in.

If you have to change your position in life; if you have to emigrate to distant shores; if it should happen that you are cast into poverty, or uplifted suddenly into a more responsible position than the one you now occupy; if you are thrown among strangers, or cast among foes, yet tremble not, for ‘the Lord shall guide thee continually.’

There are no dilemmas out of which you shall not be delivered if you live near to God, and your heart be kept warm with holy love. He goes not amiss who goes in the company of God. Like Enoch, walk with God, and you cannot mistake your road. You have infallible wisdom to direct you, immutable love to comfort you, and eternal power to defend you. ‘Jehovah’ – mark the word – ‘Jehovah shall guide thee continually.'”

( from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening )
