Our Guide Unto Death

"For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death" (Psalm 48:14).

No true believer has been left alone to wander aimlessly through his Christian life without guidance. We have a Guide and we have a map. The Guide is the Holy Spirit and the map is the Word of God. "Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth. . . . for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you" (John 16:13-14).

This assures us of being led in the right path. "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye" (Psalm 32:8). God's eyes are far better to depend on than our own eyes. Our Lord even warned us about avoiding those whom He called, "blind guides" (Matthew 23:16), "And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" (Matthew 15:14).

God's guidance can also be depended upon when facing extreme difficulty and hardships. "And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought . . . thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water" (Isaiah 58:11). "Thus the Lord saved Hezekiah . . . from the hand of Sennacherib . . . and from the hand of all other, and guided them on every side" (II Chronicles 32:22).

David, the sweet psalmist of Israel, pleaded with God on many an occasion for guidance, but with a great desire that his requests would come from pure motives and not selfish desires. "For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me" (Psalm 31:3). He wanted God to be glorified when the deliverance came.

Since God is for ever and ever, we can be assured of His guidance, not only throughout life, unto death, but on into eternity, and forevermore! NPS
