Pr. 6:22: “When you roam, they will lead you; when you sleep they will keep you; when you awake, they will speak with you.”
This verse is talking about what will happen when you bind the commands of the father and the law of the mother on your heart, and tie them around your neck.
If you can bind the Father’s commands on your heart, and remember the truth you’ve been taught about Him over the years, then you won’t have to search for answers to every question.
Yesterday I watched an interview of someone who was searching for the answer to a question she was asking. She said, “We prayed about it. We weren’t sure if it was right.” I feel certain she knew the answer before she prayed, because the question was about murder.
Having bound God’s commands on my heart, I know the answer from God would be no. I feel certain she did, too; however, she went ahead and decided to do it, saying that they got comfortable with the idea after being around others who knew more about it.
When we need answers to our questions, other people are not the place to find them. The Lord’s Word will lead us, keep us, and speak to us. His Word has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is still as faithful to take care of us as He has ever been.
When we choose to trust Him enough to follow His commands…no matter what anyone else chooses…then we are allowing Him to prove Himself faithful, strong, and true in our lives. He IS our Provider, our Shelter, our Deliverer, and our Savior, and He always will be. He will take care of us.
We must not forget what we’ve learned, and we must keep learning day by day. God is our Guide and our Answer!
