God has promised that He will instruct and teach in the way we should go, that He will counsel and watch over us. (Psalm 32:8)
I have this promise framed in my living room. Nina in the circle of friends made it for me, and I treasure it.
It is a wonderful promise, which I have found it to be true. It does happen, and its great, getting counsel and guidance from the Lord. The trouble is, the Lord doesn’t seem to care about comfort zones, and it can be quite difficult explaining things to people outside the Kingdom.
Have you ever had a situation where God has given instructions or counsel about the way in which you should go, but you can’t explain your choice of action to the outside world? Chapter 42 Canberra tells the story.
