Isaiah 45:2 NASB, “I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.”
Thank you big brother Matt at Jesusluvsall for the birthday post on yesterday, and thank you to everyone for the birthday blessings and prayers. It was an enjoyable day, and all of your kind words made my day even better. I’m very thankful to celebrate another year of life!
While I was at lunch yesterday, I was reflecting on the Lord’s goodness. It’s amazing how He takes such good care of His children. I thought about how life can bring so many changes, some may be pleasant but some may not be. However we never have to be afraid, because through every change, He is with us.
God has a way of always working things out. As I was reflecting on His provision over the years, and even now, He spoke to my heart and said, “I prepare a place for you.” No matter what we go through, when we are being faithful to the Lord, and following the path He has laid out before us, He will “prepare a place for us”. All we have to do is choose to obediently follow Him. Even if it seems inconvenient at the time, trust God and know that His plans for you are perfect. The details of life that may seem imperfect to us, are no surprise to the Father, and are perfectly crafted into His will for our lives.
As Isaiah 45:2 says, “He makes the rough places smooth.” Knowing that we serve a God who will provide what we need to walk in His will is a true comfort. I heard Dr. Charles Stanley say, “If necessary, God will move heaven and earth to show us His will.” Whatever leap of faith God is calling you to take, remember He has prepared a place for you, and boldly go forth knowing that He will never leave you alone. He will provide all you need. I pray you feel the love of the Father as you go through your day.
