God’s Path is our Plan

There are times in our lives, when we can see our path clearly and it is well defined. Then there are other times, when we feel like we are in a dense fog, doing good to just take one step at a time. It seems that everything is put on hold and out of wack. This is not a time to panic, but to pray and trust God. We need do our best each day and take it one step at a time. We have a tendency to want to rush on ahead into the dense fog of the unknown, which can be dangerous. We are always in a hurry to “get over it”. We are slow to recognize that God can even use this difficult time in our lives. We can grow stronger because God is with us in the midst of the mess. This can be an opportunity for Him to continue to build and develop our character and faith by “going through it” while trusting in Him. As we go and grow through these tough times, here are encouraging words from some of my all time favorite verses found in the Psalms…

“I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” – Psalm 34:4 (NKJV)

“The Lord hears His people when they call Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.” – Psalm 34: 17 (NLT)

“Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him and He will help you.” – Psalm 37:3 (NLT)

“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 (NLT)

“Put your trust in the Lord. Travel steadily along His path.” – Psalm 34:34 (NLT)

” I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, ways and He turned to me and heard my cry He lifted me up out of the pit of despair.” – Psalm 40: 1-2 (NLT)

Someday down the road, we can look back and say with the Psalmist…“ What if the Lord had not been on our side? Our help is from the Lord, who made Heaven and earth.” ( Psalm 124:4,8)

In the meantime, may you and I look to the Lord for the strength that we need to keep going… one step at a time, because that is God’s path and it is our plan.
