Pro 20:24 (ESV)
“A man’s steps are from the LORD; how then can man understand his way?”
“It is the Lord who directs your life, for each step you take is ordained by God to bring you closer to your destiny. So much of your life, then, remains a mystery!”Pro 20:24 (TPT)
There in beauty and adventure in the long journey. Oftentimes God takes us on the long route rather than the short one. He has very good reasons for doing this and His timing is perfect. When on a long journey however, we can at times feel tired, weary, disorientated, frustrated and wonder like little children -are we nearly there yet? If we persevere on the long journey, there is incredible beauty, wonder and glory to be experienced and we are changed in the process.
So much of our lives remain a mystery and we fail to understand why the journey is so difficult and long. However, once we understand that it is the Lord that directs our lives and chooses the steps we take to get there then we can arrive at the place of contentment, peace and hope for the future.
Understanding how God guides us and works in our life is essential to joy, peace and happiness. In this message I will unpack the beauty and adventure of the long journey and how God works in our lives to lead us into an abundant life.
