Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. Psalm 139.10
One of the many exciting aspects of walking with Christ is that we don’t know what’s going to happen next. At times we may be uncomfortable with the twists and turns, but God reserves the right to lead us wherever He wants. Paul and his missionary companions were making their way through Asia Minor when God changed their plans (Acts 16:6-7). Instead of going to Bithynia, they went to Troas. That night Paul saw a vision of a man pleading, “Come over to Macedonia and help us” (v.9). Paul’s plans were changed when God revealed His. As we prayerfully consider what God wants us to do, we can be confident that He will lead us day by day through His Word and by His Spirit within us (Psalm 139:10). Because He is good (25:8), we can trust Him with our lives in this great adventure called the Christian life.
