“Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.”
It’s true that sometimes the way before us appears to be blocked…but that because in those times we’re focused on the obstacle or so busy searching for a way around it that we go off course.
What we should do is focus on Him; the Shepherd who is leading us along our life-journey; and before we know it, the “obstacle” will be behind us and we will hardly know how we got past it.
That is the secret of success in His kingdom…remaining aware of the visible world around us…but keeping our primary focus on Christ.
It is my prayer today that when the road before us gets rocky, we can trust Christ to get us through that rough patch. May His presence enable us to face this weekend with confidence knowing that no matter what we face…He will make our way smooth…amen!
