The Key to Avoiding Spiritual Blindness

All Scripture is God-breathedand is useful for teaching,rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,so that the servant of Godmay be thoroughly equipped for every good work. - 2 Timothy 3:16-17

In November of 1991, a freak dust storm caused a massive pileup along Interstate 5 near Coalinga, California. Over a dozen people were killed, and many more were injured as the massive cloud reduced visibility to zero.

By the end of the storm, a three-mile trail of twisted, burning vehicles lay in its wake. It was then that what happened began to make sense. It wasn’t just one collision. Rather, over the course of the storm, motorists continued to drive blindly ahead into the disaster.

How many people, like those motorists, drive blindly ahead into spiritual disaster? They go about their days and weeks making decisions like normal, but failing to realize that the road they’ve put themselves on will ultimately lead them into harm.

So how do we steer clear of being spiritually blindsided? We stop trusting in ourselves and let God’s Word lead us. We don’t do what “feels right,” but what we know is right because we’ve searched the Scriptures. Because when the things of the world keep us from seeing clearly, you can trust God’s Word to bring clarity and conviction!

Prayer Challenge:

Ask God to use His Word to guide the path of your life and bring clarity and conviction where you need it.

Questions for Thought:

Think of a time when you did what you thought was right, but it led you down the wrong path.

 

What can you do to make sure God’s Word is constantly guiding your path?
