October 28

Jeremiah 10:17-25; 2 Timothy 4:9-22

Thought from Today's Old Testament Passage:

O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps [Jeremiah 10:23].

No man can walk aright apart from the revelation of God in His Word. The minute a man turns from the Word of God, he is on a detour. That is our natural course. In fact, we begin that way. I used to take my little grandson for a walk around the block when he was learning to walk. He was a wonderful little fellow, but he wore me out because he wanted to walk up the sidewalk of every house we passed; and when we came to a driveway, he would want to run out in the street, and when we would get to a corner he would want to go the wrong way. I have never seen a little fellow who wanted to go in as many wrong ways as he did. One day when we finally got home, I said to him, "Kim, you're just like your grandfather. When he gets away from the Word of God, he always goes down a detour." My friend, "it is not in man… to direct his steps." We are dependent upon the omniscient God for direction in every area of our lives.
