The Road Ahead

Walking through life is not always a smooth road.  There will be stones in the path to cause you to stumble, bridges washed out causing us to change direction, strong winds to blow us off the path and of course there are those dreaded deep pits that seem to trap you and keep you from traveling forward.
We may lose our way for a time but we can trust God to guide us in the right direction. We are assured that God is faithful to guide and protect us regardless of where we are on the journey no matter how far away from Him we are.  Remembering that we are the ones who moved and it is comforting to know that He has always been there waiting for us to notice.When we became a Christian, He did not promise the road would be smooth without pits or stumbling stones.  He did not promise there would be no hurts, no trials, no torrential rains to wash away our life’s plans.  He did promise He would be there to hold us up and give us strength. He promised in Roman 8:28
“we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

Oswald Chambers in My Utmost for His Highest stated “God’s training is for now, not presently.  His purpose is for this minute, not something in the future…It is the process, not the end, which is glorifying to God…God’s end is to enable me to see that He can walk on the chaos of my life just now”

We live moment by moment. Trust Him now and each moment.  It’s the process of trusting that will take us closer to a maturing faith in Christ Jesus. Give Him the opportunity to walk on the chaos of your life this minute.
