Which Way to Go

From Ecclesiastes 10, the lesson for me is to focus on God’s way when facing challenges. To listen, pay attention, stay calm, and be careful; knowing that God’s way is best.

The study of God’s Word inclines our actions to be passionately directed towards His way. Along this way, character is built up and the result is victory. It is a faithful way where respect is given to those in charge, care is taken in what is said, and attention to the small details eventually leads from insignificance into major significance.

Wisdom has a great advantage over foolishness. A fool tries in desperation to get out of circumstances but a wise person falls back on the strengths that allow them to eventually step ahead into circumstances that are favorable.

This day with God will be amazing because His principles never change. A daily devotional time internalizes His guiding principles becoming an instrument which pushes one to focus on Him in every activity throughout the day. In preparation for prayer, spend a few minutes in silence, putting away the cares and concerns and noise of the day, listening to the Holy Spirit for directions on which way to go.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
