What path will I take?
There are so many choices…..or do I have a choice at all?
When I think about trying to do right, trying to find God’s will for my life, or trying to chose the path of my life, it’s sometimes overwhelming.
It can feel I have no choice, or that the options are too many and lead to confusion and lack of peace.
Will I hear God’s voice? Will I discern his direction? Will I really make something of my life?
Although we could debate on whether or not there is just one right path for our life, or whether we have many choices, I think that some things are clear.
If we have chosen to follow Jesus; if we’ve given our lives to God; if we are full of doubts and are just asking him for help…..he will not fail us.
God promises to direct our path.
He said that he would be with us.
God’s Word lets me know that he will show me the right way to go.
I just need to trust him and follow the path.
Let the words of the Psalms give you peace and courage today:
“Put your hope in the Lord.
Travel steadily along his path.”
“Lead me in the right path, O Lord,
or my enemies will conquer me.
Make your way plain for me to follow.”
“You have made a wide path for my feet
to keep them from slipping.”
“He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.”
“Show me the right path, O Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.”
“The Lord is good and does what is right;
he shows the proper path to those who go astray.”
“Who are those who fear the Lord?
He will show them the path they should choose.”
“Teach me how to live, O Lord.
Lead me along the right path“
He has a purpose for my life.
My life does have meaning.
It doesn’t have to be so complicated.
As long as I’m following him, God will show me the meaningful and fulfilling path that he laid out for me before I was even born.
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.”
Lord, help me to live with intention and follow your path.
