TRUE NORTH

TRUE NORTH
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 Compass – A device for determining direction by means of a magnetic needle or group of needles turning freely on a pivot and pointing to the magnetic north.
-------
The word of God is a compass pointing us true North to Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit is the needle on the compass,
the rudder on the ship,
and the wind behind the sail.
He grants discernment to a seeking heart,
wisdom to the wondering,
and grace to the hurting.
He comforts, corrects, and He never neglects,
the child of God.
-------
He’s the great Discerner,
the true needle residing within you,
abiding in you,
directing you to heaven’s doorway.
-------
He appropriates the word within you;
steadies you on the course marked out for you.
He seals,
solidifies,
sets-apart and sanctifies,
the child of God.
He’s the needle on the compass that leads you home.
He’ll be with you …
and you’ll never walk alone.
True North.

“O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps."
Jeremiah 10:23
