“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14

A friend and I recently attended a very, very large gathering. Tens of thousands of women gathered to worship God and draw closer to Him. At times the venue would go almost completely dark, except for one thing:the shirts worn by the ushers. Someone had the brilliant idea to have their shirts made of a material that would glow brightly with just a small amount of light. What’s more, they were distributed around the arena – the ushers weren’t clustered in one spot, but scattered throughout so as to never be far from someone in need.

If only God’s guidance was so easily spotted in the chaos in our lives.

But guide us He does. Sometimes we don’t recognize His signposts at pivotal points in our journey until we have already passed by them, but still He provides. We just have to keep our eyes open.

Seek Him. Seek His guidance, and the people He will place in your path to assist you in following Him. They may not be wearing a shirt that glows,  but the Holy Spirit can help you see – and follow – all the same.
