The Path of Life

Life is uncertain, but if we listen to the Lord, He’ll guide us and give us His strength for the road ahead.

Psalm 25:1-22

The future is an untraveled trail with complex twists and turns. Appealing activities can be detours that lead away from the Lord, and engaging philosophies are paths that often end in a mire of muddled thinking. Even the best route isn’t all sun-dappled meadows and quiet riverside lanes. At times we’ll journey over rugged terrain or through dark valleys. The only way to be sure we’re walking on the right path is to follow one who knows the way.

God is your perfect Guide for life, who lovingly and intentionally created you for this time and place. He watches over your steps and teaches you His paths as revealed in His Word. What’s more, He is the Comforter, who promises to walk by your side so you never face life’s challenges alone.

The Lord knows the path before you, and if you’ll humble yourself and reverence Him, He will give instructions about the way you should choose. Because He sees every discouraging obstacle and entrapping temptation, He wants to guard your steps so you won’t stumble off course. Decide to trust Him and pursue His will rather than what might feel good or look right. Then you’ll be on your way to the destination of blessing.
