SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
– Psalm 37:5-6 (NIV)
God has a path for your life but it’s up to you to make the choice to follow it. He has a plan and there is a purpose for everything He sets in place.
And sometimes, it’s easier said than done. Right now, you might be looking down at the path and there may seem to be some missing bricks. Maybe you’re wondering why the path is winding or narrow at some points.
If that’s you, be encouraged that where God has you right now is not a punishment. The way He is setting things up for you on this path is by no mistake. As God reminded his children in Jeremiah 29:11, He is not out to harm us. So understand that you don’t have to walk around wondering what’s ahead when you know that whatever God has up ahead is far better than anything you could ever imagine
Where God has you today is not a mistake or punishment. Take a moment to thank God for this very day He has given you, asking Him to give you the joy to embrace whatever He is doing on this path!
