A word for us, today…

If only life was a straight road with no bends, or hills, how easy life will then be. There be no concerns at what may lie ahead in the distance, all would be reasonable, enabling you and I to make immediate correction. Then to what gain will that be? However, life is no straight road, just narrow. Could it be that these intended bends and hills have hidden realities? Could it be that God’s intention is that through these bends and hills, we would learn to rely on Him more than on ourselves? That we would learn to accept that in life God should always be the One in whom we lean on? Why? Well here is something I have learned over time. It is not how many bends or hills that matters, it is that you remain on the narrow road. As we are on His road, then no obstacles, obstruction, bends or hills should be of great concern. He is well aware of them, and if we encounter them, then they can only be for your advantages, not disadvantages. God is in the building of life, character, gifts, etc…He has made us for His glory; He leads us in triumphant victory even if everything around us seems otherwise. Keep reminding yourself that God is ALWAYS for me and not AGAINST me.
