“I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: “That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures” (Proverbs 8:20-21).
Our only hope to be successful in this life is to follow Christ. The bible promises us that he will guide us through the journey, even when we are surrounded by judgment. It is in his plan to bless us beyond what we could ask or think. It is important that we trust God to direct our steps. I, for one, have a tendency to grow impatient and jump before I know if there is a safety net in place in case I were to slip and fall. The Lord establishes boundaries to keep us safe, and our smartest move is to wait on the Lord to lead us through those times when we can’t see our way clear to the next part of our journey.
There is a road in Pigeon Forge, that makes you feel like you are going to fall off of the cliff. It is at such a steep angle that you can’t see the road ahead of you. It is truly a road that you must travel carefully, because you are not aware of what lies ahead.
Life is like that sometimes. We are faced with situations where we can’t see ahead for the next steps to take, so we must step out in faith. There is no where that you can safely turn around, so the only path is the one that is before you. Have faith in God.
So many times we have no clear path before us. Do we quit? Never. The Lord promises that he will go before us, and he has already made a way. We must learn to trust his leading. People are wandering around in the darkness, but we have the light to help them find their way to the Lord. Is your light shining brightly, so others can see? If not, why not?
Today, is a good day to decide that you want to live for the Lord. In this week’s Lattereign, we learn how to Be a Light in This World
