This morning I was reading Isaiah 30:21, “Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.” There have been many times when I did not know what to do, but when I arrived at the right place (spiritually, physically, emotionally), I either HEARD the words, “This is it!” or I said out loud, “This is it!”
I compare this to someone who is searching to buy a new home. Time and time again, I have seen people walk into house after house: “I like this room. I like the yard. Ok, let’s look some more.” They look at 15-20 houses or more and suddenly they walk into ONE and say, “THIS IS IT!”
We talk about being led by the Spirit of God, which indicates He is in front or inside, but He is also behind us. He is above us, beneath us, encircling and encompassing us. To find “your way” requires you to actively search, look, and listen to that word of witness no matter where it comes from.
