He’ll Show You The Way

Psalm 34:17 (NIV), “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.”

A couple of days ago I was speaking to a friend of mine whom I had not spoken to in quite awhile. She shared with me some of the trials that she was in the midst of. She was pressing her way through many spiritual, emotional, financial, relationship, and even mental battles. She said the enemy was attacking her from many different directions. But as she spoke she never stop professing her faith and trust in God. She said she knew that in Him she would be victorious and that she would not accept any of the negative reports that the enemy was trying to throw her way. I was inspired by her strength and through her testimony I was reminded that regardless of what we maybe facing we can still make a firm decision to believe in the faithfulness of God. We can settle any doubt in our minds by meditating on the truth of His Word and we can encourage ourselves by proclaiming what it says. We can’t rush God or His plans but we can call out to him any time of day or night and He promises to hear our cries for help and give us exactly what we need in that moment. That’s one of the many things I love about the character of God, He always knows exactly what we need and when we need it. His ways are perfect and the decisions He makes for our lives are flawless.

Before the convenient GPS days, did you ever end up driving through a neighborhood looking for a particular place and end up a little turned around or maybe even completely lost? Then you turn down a particular street hopeful that you will be able to finally find your way out of the maze only to discover the street you turned down leads to a dead end. This can be frustrating to say the least. Because now, not only do you have to turn around but you also have to start over and search for another way out. It’s the same way with life, we may at times find ourselves searching for a way out of a difficult maze that has come our way. The “maze” maybe, health problems, relationship problems, emotional problems, financial problems, the list can go on, but just remember that Christ is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). In Him we are equipped with all we need and He has promised to direct our paths if we trust in Him (Proverbs 3:5-6). Even when we feel we have come to a “dead end”, we can rest assured that Christ knows the way out and He will guide us safely to our destination. His love is always present with us wherever we go.

Father,

Thank you for leading us everyday. You Word says you guard the course of the just and protect the way of your faithful ones (Proverbs 2:8). When we find ourselves at a “dead end”, help us to recognize it as another opportunity to trust You more while being confident that you will never leave us and that you will open the right doors for us at the right time.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
