The Maze of Life versus the Path of God

The Maze of Life versus the Path of God

I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life; I will advise you and watch your progress. Psalm 32:8, LB Sometimes life can feel like we’re walking around in a maze. We feel we’re wandering around aimlessly, hoping we’ll find the exit around the next corner - only to find another detour.

We sometimes feel the situation we’re in is never going to end. We’ve done everything we know to do and it just hasn’t helped. We’re overcome. We feel overwhelmed. The breakthroughs that we’re waiting for are just not happening.

It’s encouraging to know that the Lord can see our lives from a very different perspective. He can see the way out of the situation, although we can’t. Is this is an attack from the enemy? Will we be refined? Will this help us to grow in our walk with the Lord?

But the Lord is saying He’ll tell us what to do. As we start handing over the situation to Him we’ll start to understand His heart and we’ll get direction in the situation. It’s wonderful to know He’s watching our progress. The word ‘progress’ means moving forward. So even though the breakthrough may not come at the exact time we would like it to, according to this verse, there will be progress. It’s wonderful to know the Lord has the power to fulfill every promise in His Word.

Prayer:Lord, please teach me to wait for the breakthroughs that You intend for my life. Help me not to become despondent but to hand every situation over to You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
