Today Reminder – 28 January 2014 (Day 20 – A New Horizon)

A reminder for today
The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honour to his name. (Psalm 23:1-3)

The new horizon that lies ahead of us is filled with many paths. Each one of these paths leads us to a new destination and a new challenge. Sometimes we choose the path and sometimes we stumble upon it and sometimes we are taken to this path by God. 

Some paths are nice and easy to walk and some of them are rugged and difficult and sometimes they lead through a windy and rainy mountain pass. For some paths we are prepared and we know what to expect, but on other we are completely unprepared and we have no idea what to expect.

Sometimes we slip and fall and we injure ourselves and sometimes we get stuck on a path and we seem to travel in circles. Sometimes we use a GPS and sometimes we get lost and sometimes we need to stop and ask for directions. For some paths we have the correct shoes and for other we don’t even have shoes. Sometimes we need to cross a bridge and sometimes there is no bridge at all and we need to cross the river with faith.

No matter what your path looks like that you find yourself on, God will guide you bringing honour to His name. He will give you rest when the road is hard and He will renew your strength when you are tired. God will always make sure that you have all you need when you journey on your path. You will always have the correct directions and the correct shoes to walk on your path. There are many different paths in our lives, but each one of them has a special purpose. Do not let rough and difficult terrains make you stumble and give up before you reach the end, because in each end lies a great victory.

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever. (Verse 6)

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
