  Today is a new week. A new challenge is ahead. What will the week bring forth? I don't know about tomorrow. Even more reason to trust in the Lord. He knows all about it!  He is leading the way! When you don't know where you are going, it is always best to get help. He's the best help I have ever found. 

   What is your compass today? Are you relying on the gurus of the world? And they told you what? Are you gonna put your trust in them? To prove my point, I just saw a commercial; a company was wanting to loan you money. The interest rate was only 18-24%. There are many foolish souls that will fall for that ad, dragging themselves even deeper in debt.
   Are you trusting the Philistines? That is the people who were the enemies of David and only wanted to take advantage of people. Yes, they want to exploit you today. To make a buck at your expense. I don't know about you, but that is advice I can do without. When you follow untrustworthy people to guide you, you will end up lost.  Lost and hopeless.
   God offers tried and true direction. Proverbs 3:5-7. Let us think who do we want to follow? Where will it take you? Who is your moral compas? As Joshua said, "...As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD!".
     Keep trusting the King of Kings!
