“Open my eyes to see wonderful things in your Word. I am but a pilgrim here on earth: how I need a map—and your commands are my chart and guide. I long for your instructions more than I can tell.” (Psalms 119: 18-20, the Living Bible)
We are pilgrims. We are journeying on earth, seeking a holy place, and covering new territory every day. We may have a resolve to get where we are going, to understand more, to feel a true sense of being settled, home. But we also need a map. We need a guide.
God is at hand and He is leading us in each moment. His Word—that holy goodness, that truth of our lives, the reality of His presence—is our instruction and our protection. As we look to that divine compass, we find our true north, the direction that we need to go, and with it the energy and desire to walk forward.
Let’s allow God to open our eyes to our true path to peace. Let’s not get caught up in listening to what the ego and the world’s opinions tell us is the way to heaven on earth and beyond. God is heaven. He is here. God hasn’t left us in a foreign land to fend for ourselves. He has put us here to show forth His own glory, to spread the word of Life and Love, and to feel the sense of belonging that comes from oneness with God, discovering new vistas with each step we take along the way.
