Psalms 32:8 – “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” (NASB)
I can still hear it every time I put a bolt in or take a nut off. “Righty- tighty, Lefty losey.” Growing up as a young boy who loved to take things apart and put things back together, my dad would stand over my shoulder and repeat "righty tighty, lefty losey." Today, I find myself repeating those same words to my daughters when they are helping me with a project. Today's scripture states that God will instruct us and teach us in the way that we should go. He will counsel us with His eye upon us. What a wonderful thought! No matter what kind of parents we had or what kind of father we are, we can rest in the knowledge that our Heavenly Father is watching us and instructing us in the way we should go. Oh you may ask how is He instructing and leading us … by His Word. The Bible is a living breathing word from our Heavenly Father, and it might just do us some good to open it up and see where He leads.
