“And the Lord shall guide thee continually.” – Isaiah 58:11

The Lord shall guide thee. Not an angel, but Jehovah himself shall guide you. Dear Christian, God has not left you in your earthly pilgrimage to an angel’s guidance. He Himself lead the way. Jehovah will never forsake you. Notice the word “shall”–The Lord shall guide you.” How certain this makes it. How sure it is that God will not forsake us! His precious “shalls” and “wills” are better than men’s oaths.

Then observe the adverb “continually”–We are not merely to be guided sometimes, but we are to have a perpetual monitor, not occasionally to be left to our own understanding, so as to wander, but we are continually to hear the guiding voice of the great Shepherd, and if we follow close to His heels, we shall not err, but shall be led by the right way to a city to dwell in. If you have to change your position in life, if you have to emigrate to a distant shore, if it should happen that you are cast into poverty or are lifted up into a more responsible position than the one you now occupy, if you are thrown among strangers or among foes, yet do not fear, for the Lord shall guide you continually.

There are no dilemmas out of which you shall not be delivered if you live near to God and your heart is kept warm with holy love. He goes not amiss who goes in the company of God, and who, like Enoch, walks with God. You have infallible wisdom to direct you, immutable love to comfort you, and eternal powers to defend you. Jehovah–mark the word–Jehovah shall guide thee continually.

C. H. Spurgeon
