Life is a path stepped out with many different possibilities, all with the option of life available to us.
The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. (Psalms 32:8 NLT)
We know when we have made a wrong turn. Our friends can see it, our family can see it, and history will always reveal it. Time is a great revealer.
If we know we can make a wrong turn, there was obviously a right one there to be chosen. Knowing the difference between right and wrong makes all the difference for where we are going and how we get there.
God knows all the infinite possibilities we could take and the nuances of our internal motivations, so predicting our potential pathways is not very difficult. What we are not able to see really does stand out for The Lord. This is why He is our greatest guide and advocate.
The bible says that Jesus wants to guide us along the best pathway for our lives. Of all the options, He knows the best path to take. God is for us and is most qualified to help us because there is nobody that has greater love for us.
There will be times where we think we know better, mostly because we want something quicker, things are taking too long or we simply feel a little restricted by God’s way of doing things. Regardless of how long this journey is taking, we must resist the urge to be independent from God’s direction.
God promises to watch over us and guide us so we must commit to stay the path!
