The right paths
Psalm 23:3 – He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.
Have you ever wondered if you made the right decision? If you picked the right university? If you chose the right career path? If the location you’re living in is the right one for you?
Maybe you’ve had moments when you really doubted whether you even checked with God to see if what you’re doing is the right thing?
I do, all the time! I wonder if God actually had some whole other plan for me in mind but I’ve just somehow failed to hear what He’s been trying to say.
This verse can put all of our minds at peace. God is a powerful God. He knows what decisions we’re making, even before we think them up!
I believe that God so graciously guides us along the right paths for our lives. It’s impossible to wander down a path where He won’t also be. Even if you do head somewhere that isn’t the best for you (and you’ll know it if you’re in that situation), He’s still there! One of Jesus’ nicknames is Immanuel, which means God with us. Be rest assured that wherever you are and whatever you’re doing that God is with you.
Be prayerful about every aspect of your life – asking Him for guidance and peace in the areas that you’re unsure of. And then thank Him for being your faithful guide – leading you to all the right places all for His name’s sake…
