We all just need, and want, a leader.
Thankfully, for those of us who have trusted in the Lord Jesus, we have the most perfect of leaders. We have a leader who is not only completely capable of leading but abundantly desirous of leading as well. He knows the way because He has been there before. He created the land upon which the roads rest. He made the sun which illuminates the way. It is His creation, and He promises to lead and guide us through it. But He will not force us. We must desire His leading, much like our little dog Ellie desires us to lead her. Our heart’s prayer must be that of the psalmist…
“Lead me, O Lord, in Thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
make Thy way straight before my face,” (Psalm 5:8.)
“...for Thou, Lord, only makest me to dwell in safety,” (Psalm 4:8.)
When we turn our hearts to Him as our guide, He will perfectly fulfill His role.
There is no other who can do so.
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
