Who sets the boundaries of your steps?

Along the path of life there are many speaking their own version of truth, and the world’s intellectual leaders offer savory concessions to “taste-test” as you pass by. One of the common calls from the shadows is the phrase, “Follow your heart.” On the surface, the words may sound right, but for a follower of Christ, the qualifying question should be, “Does it match the desires of God’s heart?” Consider the counsel of a wise and experienced man:

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints.” – Proverbs 2:6-8 NKJV

Today there could be an opportunity to speak a word of instruction; may the counsel come from His knowledge. An opportunity to share an opinion could present itself; may it be rooted in His wisdom. New invitations could appear around the corner; may His Word be the standard for comparing the options. And sometimes, those conversations happen only within our own mind, as we try to decide a next step. Who will set the boundaries of your path today?
