“Many are the plans of your heart, but because you trust me, I will lead you in the direction you need to go. I will not abandon you. I will provide for you in all situations throughout your life.
I am your Father and my love for you is all encompassing. It surrounds you each day and it is the force that sustains your life. Because you trust me, I will never let you down or disappoint you. Growth takes time, so abide in me and remain patient through your circumstances even when the process seems slow. By keeping your eyes fixed upon me, you will see my hand of blessing as it moves upon you.
When you come to a crossroads, that place where you’re not sure where to go or what to do, I will help you. I will show you the way. It may not happen instantaneously, but you may trust that I will lead you to truth and make the path forward clear.
Seek me in my word; seek counsel from others whose experiences may help you. And, when you find yourself in a place of peace, you will know what to do. Above all, do not worry, or fret, or fear because I am with you. Your path is secure so that you won’t stumble. Your life is in my hands and nothing will happen that is so overwhelming we can’t get through it together.
Open your heart to receive what I want to give you and allow my will to be accomplished in your life, so you will receive all the blessings I have saved for you. As you allow me to work in and through your circumstances, your faithful eyes will be rewarded so you can see clearly which way to go each time you come upon a crossroads.“
- I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. Proverbs 4: 11-13
- This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jeremiah 6:16
- For I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. Philippians 1:19
- I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3: 16-19
