A person’s path in life will be shaped by the trails he walks and the trials he endures. I’ve walked many trails that have been scenic adventures, and I’ve encountered several trials that were dismal and disappointing.
There will be times in life when nothing makes sense. The trail will seem too steep to climb and too long to endure. When David experienced a situation like this, he realized that God had already walked where he had never gone and could see what was beyond his vision.
David said: When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knew my path (Psalm 142:3).
The next time you have a tussle with a trial, remember that:
- God never leads His children down the wrong path
- You may not know where the path will lead you, but God does.
- Just because you’re confused, God isn’t confounded.
- God is present, and He will not abandon you.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world (John 16:33).
