Finding God's direction

August 18, 2011

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Psalm 32:8

As children of God, you and I need to be so sensitive to the eyes of God. Do you know what that means? Well, let me share a little perspective with you.  

When Deb and I first got married, forty years ago, I told her, "Get ready because we're going to spend the rest of our lives in church." And sure enough, we have. All three of our children grew up in the church. 

As I preached, I would keep my eye on the kids during the service to see if they were behaving. If you have children, you know what I mean. If they became disruptive, they would get what they affectionately refer to today as "the look." If you're a parent or grandparent, you know what I mean! Sometimes a glance got things back in order. But if it didn't, they got a longer look, and then a stare, and maybe even a frown.

You see, because they knew me and I knew them, I could guide them with my eyes. Well our relationship with God is similar. We need to learn to look to God's eyes for his direction and guidance.

Look for God's eyes and stay fixed upon him. And as you look to him, he will direct your steps.

WE NEED TO LEARN TO LOOK TO GOD'S EYEs FOR HIS DIRECTION.

Tap into your only true source of power!

Dear Friend,

When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!

That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.

Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!

Both of these resources are my gifts to bless you when you give an online donation today. So thank you for giving to help PowerPoint reach people with the Good News of Jesus ’til the whole world hears.

Jack Graham
