He leads me beside quiet waters… Psalm 23:2
What shepherd loves His sheep like Jesus loves His bride? When those storms are blowing down from the hills, the Good Shepherd will be there to lead us to the quiet waters. God desires to lead us in every area of our lives.
There are times when we are walking in unknown territory where it looks like the next step cannot be seen. But Jesus tells us:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him; And He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
He always knows where He is leading us; whether it is up mountainous terrain, through deep, stormy, waters or grueling dry, arid deserts. He will lead us to the desired destination. He does not want us to try and understand His leadings but to just trust him that He will reveal the course He has set before us by faith.
The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way. Psalm 37:23
God takes great delight when we let Him establish our steps and we walk in total dependence and trust in Him. The Word of God clearly teaches that the counsel of God will stand from generation to generation and will stand the test of time. God, Who fearfully and wonderfully made each one of us; knows us intimately in every detail of our lives, He will lead us in the best paths to bring us into the fullness of Christ. He will lead us into his chosen destiny for our lives. Lord Jesus, lead us by your love and we will follow you forever.
Amen. Lead me Lord, I will follow.
