God Will Direct Your Path

 Lean Not Own Unders Pr 3_5

Some time in your life, God will direct you into unknown territory. He will most likely ask you to walk away from the comfort of routine and the known.  A door will open and you will hear God’s loving voice asking you to trust Him with your future. Stepping out in a new direction, on a different path, to a new destination will take all the faith you have, but Proverbs 3:5-6 assures you that He will direct your path.  He will be your guide. You may not see very far ahead of you, but you will know where to place your feet so that you don’t stumble and fall.

 Do not lean on your own understanding when He asks you to walk down a new path.  His ways and thoughts are so much higher than your own.  Think about Joshua and the instructions God gave him regarding the walls of Jericho.  March around one time for 6 days and on the 7th day march around the city seven times and then give a big shout.  Boy, this took faith!  What seemed like nonsense to Joshua was really a test of faith. 

 Joshua’s obedience to God’s instructions paid off.  The walls fell down and the people of God were able to enter the city.  Victory was theirs, thanks to their reliance in God and a willingness to follow seemingly senseless directions.  Faith will carry you far into unknown territories.

If the Father has opened a new door for you to pass through, acknowledge Him and trust that He has prepared you for what lies ahead.  You are already well equipped to meet anything set before you. Although you may not understand why you must move forward and leave behind what is comfortable, have confidence that God has plans to prosper you.  He prunes His vines so that they bear more fruit.  Your new future will provide opportunities for you to add to the glory of His kingdom.

“For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has become His counselor??   Romans 11:34 (NKJV)

“On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, ‘Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!’”   Joshua 6:15-16 (NKJV)
