Many times in life we can get lost and off track. We can start off so well, knowing where we are going, and what direction to take. We have direction and purpose and know in our hearts that God is with us. But then life happens, and we can lose our way. We get blind sided, distracted or lead astray by our own desires, or the influences of others who aren’t on the same path as we are. If we are not careful we can find ourselves completely off track, and trying to find our way back to where we are meant to be. For some that is only for a short time, and for others it can sadly ends up being years before they find their way back to where God wanted them to be in the first place.
Today, if you feel like you have lost your way or you don’t know which direction to go next, I want to encourage you. Jesus is calling and He knows the way. He always helps us find our way back to Him, (or to Him in the first place.) It’s so easy to get distracted, or lead up the wrong path, but no matter where or what you have been doing, or where you have missed an opportunity to follow Him, Jesus has the way back. If you listen, you will hear Him calling, and all you have to do is be brave enough to follow. I’ve discovered if you look for those who know Jesus already it makes the right path easier to find, plus you can ask them to help and pray for you.
Don’t waste another day being lost, or knowing that you have taken a wrong turn somewhere. Turn, and look to Jesus and He will show you the way home.
“Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 29:12-13)
“Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls, says the Lord”. (Jeremiah 6:16)
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you”. (Psalm 32:8)
Prayer: Jesus thank you that I can never get so lost that you can’t find me. Help me to be brave enough to admit that I lost my way, or taken a wrong turn and to stop and get the right directions. Please lead and guide me so that I can find my way back to you. In Jesus Name Amen.
