God has a plan and His plans always have the best possible outcome for us if we’d only learn to keep in step with Him. He promises in His Word to direct us in our journey and to guide us away from pitfalls and mistakes. When we miss it He is faithful to pick us back up again, but He loves us so much that He really doesn’t want us to have to go through anything needlessly.
When we have a decision to make or we’re unsure of what to do, God really wants us to seek Him for the answers. He says that when we do that He will answer us and instruct us in the way to go.
One key is not to rush things. My mum has a saying that there must be demons out there called, “Hurry, Scurry and Flurry”, and they love to put us under pressure, make us feel harassed and push us to make decisions on the run. So instead of falling for these tactics we can breath, be still and trust that if God says He will guide us in the way to go, then He will.
Today take some time, (don’t rush it) and seek God – you can trust in His promises that He will lead you in exactly the right way to go as you do.
“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.” (Isaiah 48:17 NLT)
“Guide me into the paths that please you, for I take delight in all that you say.
Cause my heart to bow before your words of wisdom and not to the wealth of this world.
Help me turn my eyes away from illusions so that I pursue only that which is true; drench my soul with life as I walk in your paths.” (Psalm 119:35-37 TPT)
Prayer: Lord thankyou that you promise that you will direct my steps and that you have the perfect plan for my life. Help me to deal with any past fears, to find the root of any confusion, and that I would hear clearly from you as I seek your Word and presence today. In Jesus name Amen.
