When God Sends You a Warning Sign – Beloved Women – March 13, 2020
READ: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path..” (Psalm 119:105 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Sometimes I walk into a building where there are caution signs that read, “WET FLOOR”. I’ve become so accustomed to seeing the signs on the floor and not slipping that I now doubt whether the floor is actually wet. “Surely, it’s dry by now”, is what I tell myself. The sign is there alerting us of what happened before we walked into the building, someone mopped and therefore it is slippery.
God’s Word is the lamp unto our feet and light unto our path (Psalm 119:105); His word alerts us of what’s coming. He lets us know when we are going down a slippery slope or when we are about to fall due to temptation. He guides us when we are too busy with life, or too busy on our phones that we don’t see what’s ahead. God sends us the warning signs but we trivialize them; we convince ourselves that we can handle whatever is coming, that if we survived the last time, we can do it again. Through His Word, God reminds us to take caution and be alert. How gracious is He to speak to us through His Word.
PRAY: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your continual guidance. I ask that You would increase my discernment so that I can heed Your warnings. I pray that You’d remind me of Your Word that lights my path and cautions me of what’s to come. Father, I pray for a spirit of humility and not one of pride and I thank You for being my protector and my covering when I’ve made poor choices. I pray that grace would abound as I serve You and continue to learn of You. In Jesus name, Amen.
REFLECT: Is God sending you a warning about a certain situation in your life? Maybe something happened at work? Or perhaps it’s related to a friend? Are you listening to Him or following your own wisdom?
SHARE: Through His Word, God reminds us to take caution and be alert.
