“He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my stay.” (Psalm 18:17-18)
No matter what happens in life, the Lord is there to guide you along the way. Things in life will happen, as they did to Jesus, but it does not mean the Lord is not with you. In fact, when all is stripped away, it is the Lord in front of Whom you will stand. Trust in the Lord above all things and know He will guide you through all things. He who gave life sustains it through all trials and travails.
Lord, help me to see in you the way of life and that throughout this life You lead and guide me to the place You have always intended. Through what I call the twists and turns of life, You are leading ever forward to the place where You have always known I would be. Help me live the drama of this life knowing You are always by my side, accomplishing all that You have purposed.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for demonstrating in the body that this life is not something that is coasted through, but lived in good times and bad. Lead me to know that in You is all hope; and Your grace sustains me through every valley and over every mountain that shall be in my path. In You I see that all things shall work together for good. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You would have me go. Amen.
