Routines. Auto-pilot. Distracted living. These words define my days. I have a calendar, not to help me be organized, but so I can remember what I did yesterday, last week, and a month ago. I hit cruise when I wake up, and at the end of the day I wonder how I got there. I want to live intentionally each day, with purpose, for God’s glory, but sleepwalking through life doesn’t help me meet that goal. He guides us incrementally, moment by moment, step by step. If we want to be guided by him, then we learn his voice within the context of a relationship with him, which means we need to be in his Word.

What was penned years ago is wisdom that’s appropriate for our place in time. Let’s visit some verses that will guide us through our day.
