"He will teach the ways that are right and best to those who humbly turn to Him" (Psalm 25:9).
A guide, taking some tourists through Mammoth Cave, reached a place called "The Cathedral."
Mounting a rock called "The Pulpit," he said he wanted to preach a sermon, and it would be short.
"Keep close to your guide," he said.
The tourists soon found it was a good sermon. If they did not keep close to the guide, they would be lost in the midst of pits, precipices and caverns.
It is hard to find one's way through Mammoth Cave without a guide. It is harder to find one's way through the world without the lamp of God's Word.
"Keep your eye on the Light of the World (Jesus) and use the Lamp of God's Word" is a good motto for the Christian to follow.
Humbly turning to God is one of the most meaningful exercises a person can take. We come in touch with divine sovereignty, and we become instant candidates to discern God's will for our lives.
Humbling ourselves is clearly in line with God's formula for revival:
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14, KJV).
Today's Action Point
With the enabling of the Holy Spirit, I will fix my heart and mind on Jesus first and others second, which is true humility.
