Follow or Be Led

There are passages that I have known for many years, in this case over 40, that I will read, like I did this morning, and the full message finally sinks in.
Follow or Be Led
Look at Psalm 32:8 – 9.  If you are like me and many other believers you have used verse 8 as both as a comfort and a counseling tool.  It is one of those standard verses that everyone memorizes, me included.

The interesting thing is that verse 9 is in contrast to verse 8.  In both verses the Lord is leading, directing us in the way in which we should go.  The difference is in verse 8 we are engaged in listening to Him, learning from Him, asking His counsel.  Those in verse 9 are still being led by the Lord, they are just not involved at all in the process.  It is like He is pulling them along with a bridle, the trappings.

The interesting thing is we are invited to participate so we can follow or be led.
