He only gives us enough light for the next step. Life with God is made up of next steps. No crystal ball that shows us the picture of where we are going. We are following His lead. Doing the next thing that He gives us to do. Lately life has been wild and confusing. It looks like I am going in one direction and suddenly I am moving in the opposite direction. Is God crazy? Am I crazy?
No life with God is unpredictable..risky..always new..not in the box. Our God has a plan and He will do everything He can to help us stay on track..even if it means turning us around and taking us down a road we missed. He sets the course and then asks us to follow after Him when nothing makes sense..when everything seems out of control..when we can’t see more than a tiny glimpse of light. He promises to take care of us as we do this..to be right beside us..to catch us when we fall..to protect us..to comfort us..to encourage us.
His plans are ” good and not for evil.” He delights in us and He wants to give us every good gift that He has for us. I don’t know about you but sometimes I grow weary of all the twists and turns on this road..just longing to reach some destination where I can rest and relax. There will be a time for that..meanwhile I want to keep my eyes on Him and continue to stay close so I don’t miss the next turn. He is leading..we are following. Step by step.
” Trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not depend upon your own understanding. Seek His will in all that you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
