Light for the path..

Isaiah 42:16 

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.

I find myself living in fast forward.  Do you?  Always worrying about tomorrow or next week.  I sometimes worry about months down the path.  Recently I was reminded I need to quit trying to do things in my own strength.  I needed to trust Christ and rely on His strength.  I don’t do this deliberately, it’s just habit.  Well, time to make a new habit.  God will light my path.  His word says so.  I get so nervous of not having control that I want a to know what’s going to happen or better yet, I try to control what’s going to happen.  

God tells us he will light the stone that is right in front of us.  Not 20 feet down the path.  We want a floodlight so we can see what’s coming, but think about it.  If we had that than we wouldn’t seek Him.  We could see into the future.  Do you notice that it takes one letter on the word see to change it. 

See

Seek

We need to constantly be seeking Jesus to seeJesus and his ways.  We need to be allowing him to invade our lives, empowering us through his word and equipping us for the journey.  Do we continually project into the future and miss out on the present.  Allow each day to be an adventure with Christ.  It is given freely as a gift.  How are you going to receive it? 

Psalm 119:105 

         Your word is a lamp for my feet,
         a light on my path.
