The crossroads and intersections of life, pepper the course you take. Without His guiding light, your steps will falter – your way will become a labyrinth. But with the saints of old, we call to the Lord our God and He hears our cry. With the men of faith, we hold fast to His promises and trust in His love. With prophets, priests, and kings – we stand still and see the salvation of the LORD.
For without His help we could not face unafraid, the stony path before us. We would balk at the mountainous terrain to the left hand and to the right hand. We would fear.. as the pounding sea stays our forward stride. We would faint.. as the enemy behind relentlessly pursues our path. But hearken to the voice of the prophet, Moses: Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will show to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more, forever. Ex.24:13.
Past pains can erect future barriers that entomb hearts and wreck relationships. Future fears and mental imaginings can melt the stoutest of hearts into defeat. Bury all thoughts of unkindness and bitterness, in His sea of forgetful forgiveness and lay to rest each sadness and each bitter memory – all dislikes and painful resentments. Put away all sense of fault, failures, and your own shame and disappointments.. failures and disappoints of others as well and you own. Leave them together with your gloom and despondency – buried in that sea.. and go forward into newness of life.. a life in Him Who is all in all.
Remember – you must not see as the world sees. He holds your future in His hand.. in trust – for you. He will lead you and guide you one step at a time, little by little by little; day by day by day by day. Leave the rest with Him as you keep your eyes firmly gazing upon Him. He has plans for your life that beggar the imagination. The gift He has for you must not be viewed through the lens of today’s troubles. His rewards cannot be identified by the outer package of this day's problems. I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster –to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 So remember... ONE day at a time
