The path the Lord puts you on is a perfect path!
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” ~ Isaiah 30:21
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” ~ Psalm 16:11
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” ~ Proverbs 3:6
“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” ~ Jeremiah 6:16
The path the Lord puts you on is a perfect path. It is perfect even though I surely don’t always remember that and some days I have to remind myself over and over. It is perfect though the scenery and experiences aren’t at all like I had once envisioned in my carnal mind. It is perfect though sometimes it feels like I am walking the path backwards instead of moving forward. And I wonder were these backward steps necessary because I got off His path somewhere or I did something wrong…or is this backward motion God’s forward after all?
I have asked for the “old paths, where is the good way” so I ask the Lord today to empower me that I would “walk therein” for “His Name’s sake!” Amen!
“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” ~ Psalm 23:3
