A Path Before Us

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ ”

– Isaiah 30:21

Today I want you to consider this thought: God has laid a path before us, and we are encouraged to walk that path. You will only feel peace if you are on the right path! If you think something is not quite right, it’s worth asking the Lord, “Am I on the correct path?” It is ok to ask, even if you’ve experienced success and everything is going right. Even if all your friends speak well of you, ask if you’re on the right path. Your spouse or closest friends will tell you the truth!

It’s uncanny how often we don’t know the right path because we tend to think about the journey’s end rather than the beginning. Repeatedly, God will call us on a journey beginning with simple acts of service that might seem small or monotonous. Do you know the movie, “The Karate Kid”? A karate master teaches a teenager karate to help defend himself and compete in a tournament against his bullies. Daniel, the student, was instructed by his mentor to complete many mundane tasks, including washing and waxing cars, painting a fence, and sanding floors. Each small task brought much frustration, but Daniel finally realized his mentor was training him to build the muscles needed to practice karate. We, too, can gain value as we serve with humility. 

Friend, many messages about God’s destiny and calling for you are available. You are on the correct path if you live life at a slow enough pace to recognize when people need help, or when they’re suffering. That’s when you seize the opportunity to help someone. We can follow Jesus by serving people and especially our neighbors.

Prayer


Father, show me the path you have for me. Help me to walk in the fullness of my destiny.

Reflection


Have you recognized mundane tasks that were building spiritual strength in you?
