Follow the Crumbs

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” – Psalm 37:23 (NLT)

Are there times in your life when you feel lost? Every now and again we all wonder what we should do or where we should go next. The good news is that God knows everything and He takes pleasure in ordering the details of our lives. So how do we tap into His wisdom and direction?

We follow the crumbs.

God has been gracious enough to leave us crumbs. When we need direction to see our path clearly, we simply need to follow them. We do this by first looking to His Word, His revelation to us all. Then we listen by paying attention to the gifts, abilities, interests and nature that He has uniquely placed in us individually. Lastly, we keep our spiritual eyes open to the opportunities that He brings or the experiences that He has allowed us to have.

These crumbs are signs of His guidance. God enjoys seeing us live fruitful lives and He helps us along the way by leaving a trail of crumbs, right in plain sight, for us to follow.

Make the time to Look and to Listen. God is good. He is always loving and leading you. Follow the crumbs. You don’t have to know it all to move forward. Just know that God will never leave you without a next step.
