May 2, 2016 WHICH PATH TO TAKE
Ever wondered how life may have been different if something would have happened at a different time or we made different choices? Maybe after graduation from high school or accepting a certain job. Or the people we chose to spend the rest of our lives with or certain friends. When we take one path in life, we may never know how it "would have been" if we had made another choice. However, we can know when we take God's path, His timing is perfect. Going the direction God wants us to go can only take us on the right road to where we absolutely belong.
Proverbs 14:2 "Those who follow the right path fear the LORD; those who take the wrong path despise him." (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know we can't go back and change the past. We understand we will never know how our lives would have been if we had made different choices. However, we do know we can make better choices now. We know we can take Your path and not worry about tomorrow. We can know Your timing and Your plans are perfect and we can move forward completely trusting in You. Remind us daily to trust in Your perfect timing. In Jesus' name. Amen.
When we trust in God's perfect timing, we will know what to do and when to do it.
God can show us what to do when we put our faith in Him and trust Him to show us His way.
Those who choose to follow God's path will still have trials but they will have peace in those trials knowing He is with them.
When we trust in God's timing and follow through in obedience to Him, we will not miss out on His blessings.
When we step out in obedience to God, He will lead us on the right path at the right time.
Psalm 5:8 "Lead me in the right path, O LORD, or my enemies will conquer me. Make your way plain for me to follow." (NLT)
Focus: If we aren't sure what to do and when to do it, God can help. His timing is always perfect.
