“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).
Do you ever feel apprehensive to allow God to guide your footsteps? I most definitely have. One reason is because God doesn’t reveal all the details of His plan and that is intimidating. I like details, you know what I mean?
When we arrive at a place where God is not trustworthy with directing our footsteps, providing financially for us, leading us out of an unhealthy relationship – it is a place where we have placed confidence in ourselves or confidence in someone other than God.
Everyone Lives This Story
Can I trust my destiny to God?
Will God provide for me?
Can I trust God when I don’t understand?
When our journey takes us through curves in the path we weren’t prepared for – such as disapproval, criticism, unfair decisions, health problems or relationship woes – our walk with God may be challenged and our calling may be questioned.
Do not give up when life isn’t turning out how you expected it. Trust in God.
God’s plan is revealed by a lighted path, but oftentimes we will not know the destination. It’s a step-by-step and a walk-by-faith journey.
Sometimes the path He has us walk will bend and wind through the boundaries of our comfort zones, but that is because God wants us to grow and He also wants us to know that His ways are greater than our ways.
Proverbs 3:5-6 states, “Trust in the LORD withal thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Prayer: Lord, I pray Your word will lead me to Your perfect will. Direct my path today and help me to trust You with all of my heart and lean on Your understanding. I acknowledge Your sovereignty and Your power. Be a light to my path today. In Jesus Name.
