“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand” – Psalm 37:23-24

As a follower of Jesus Christ you are no longer wondering around aimlessly in the dark; you now have the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords illuminating your path.

God is not only watching over your steps brothers and sisters, He is also the One helping you make great decisions!

Your life is precious to God and He delights in every single detail of it!

He truly does know what’s best for you, and does have a plan and purpose for creating you!

God did not call you out of this world by name to simply leave you all alone to figure it out for yourself.

He has filled you with His Holy Spirit, set your feet upon the Rock, and has given you the Bible as a blueprint for your life.

As Christians, we are to use these resources by walking in obedience to His word, trusting in Him with all our hearts, and leaning solely on His divine wisdom and understanding, not our own.

A Fork in the Road

There may be times in your life when you will reach a fork in the road.

The path you’re on could go either way and you may feel stuck or confused about which way God wants you to go.

We need to remember, that confusion is not of the Lord, so we are to stand still and seek God’s perfect will through prayer, meditation and devotion.

Then we need to wait patiently for Him to tell us when and where He wants us to move which is probably the hardest thing to do.

We need to remember that the Spirit is willing, but our flesh is weak.

We may allow those voices in our head to rage in battle, unsure of which voice belongs to whom.

But rest assured, as a child of the Most High God, you will recognize your Shepherd’s voice :-).

God will reveal His perfect will to you in His perfect timing by taking you by the hand and confirming which way He wants you to go.  

Key Takeaway

Follow your Leader wholeheartedly, brothers and sisters, by staying on the narrow path He lays out before you.

Trust in your Good Shepherd completely by laying all your cares, concerns, decisions, and heart’s desires at the foot of His cross.

Know that wherever you go, if you are there with the Lord your God, it truly is the best possible place you could be.  

No matter what lies before you, know that God is already there.

He will meet you exactly where you’re at and will make all your crooked paths straight.

So let go of this world, reach out your hands, and hold on tightly to His.

Your heavenly Father is sheltering you under the shadow of His wings, and is holding you safely and securely in the almighty palms of His hands.
