Isaiah 53:6 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. (NIV)

Frank Sinatra sang a song, “I’ll do it my way.”  Lots of us, when we get a new electronic, are very eager to use it we don’t take time to look at the instructions.  We can do it our way.  So often our way fails.  We like to determine for ourselves the way we will live.  We like to make our own decisions.  We often get into problems living that way.  There is only one way to live a full, abundant life.  That way is God’s way.  The only way we know God’s way is through the Holy Bible instructions.  The only way we can understand those instructions is through the interpretation of the Holy Spirit.  The only way we can have the Holy Spirit within us is by receiving God’s Word, Jesus, His only Son, into our hearts, minds and lives.  Frank’s music is pretty but very misleading.  Let’s learn to do it God’s way from the start.  His instructions cover every possibility in our lives and never fail.  The reason we are like sheep is because sheep are very dependent on the shepherd.  Jesus is the Shepherd and will guard and care for us, His sheep, through all circumstances of life.  Oh that we would stop doing things our own way and allow the Shepherd to lead us His way.
