This world can be a confusing place sometimes and everywhere you turn, someone is trying to get your attention. It is comforting to know that the Lord has already laid out a path for us to follow. The bible says in Psalms 119:105, ” Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” If you get confused about decisions that you must make in your life, then it is time to go to the word and find out what the Lord has to say about the steps you must take.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand” (Psalm 37:23-24).
Never have I been left empty while serving the Lord. My life is filled with joy that others may not understand. Circumstances come into our lives, at times, that baffle others when they realize that you are still worshiping the Lord. He gives us strength and the courage to keep moving forward in his will. It takes someone willing to trust him, no matter how terrible life may seem.
I challenge you today to keep following the path. Don’t look to the left or the right, just keep following God’s plan for your life even when it seems that you don’t have a clue where the next step you take on your journey may lead you. When you are surrounded by the fog of the unknown, remember that, even then, you only need to take a step and your path way will become clearer. For every step you take, you are closer to the light of God’s promise.
It is true that at times I have allowed the fear of the unknown to paralyze me to the point that I hesitate taking the next necessary step. I know that there are angels that are leading me through the situations I am called to face. I also know that trusting the Lord and leaning not to my own understanding has helped me to take many steps that I never realized that I would be able to take in faith.
I have nothing to lose and everything to gain when I allow the Lord to direct my steps. He has already made the way, and he knows the traps that satan tries to set that would throw us off track. He has already conquered the enemy of our soul, so why should I be concerned about it?
I choose to trust in him above all else. In this week’s, Lattereign, we learn that we can look to the Lord at all times. I will lift up mine eyes
