When You Do Not Yet See the Way

IMG_2703

Andrew Murray wrote a book titled Abiding in Christ, originally published in 1895 but still relevant today. The following posts in this series are a combination of his thoughts and mine.

Cultivate the habit of rejoicing in the assurance that the God of divine wisdom is guiding you, even where you do not yet see the way.

This really hits home, because right now I do not see the way at all. My heart knows God is guiding my steps but so often my head can’t get wrapped around it. In times like these, the best advice is to pray and read the Word.

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;  and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:4-7

I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, for You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities, – Psalm 31:7
