You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Often at the beginning of a new year, you’re faced with lots of decisions. Whether it’s scheduling meetings, trips, and events, or choosing how you’ll spend your time and money, you cast a vision for how you’d like the next twelve months to go. You can plan all you want, but if the Lord isn’t the compass at the heart of your choices, you’re bound to get lost.
When we turn to God and ask for his guidance, he delights in leading us to fulfill our purpose. We may still face obstacles and challenges, but we can persevere knowing that he is leading the way before us. Even when suffering painful circumstances, we can experience joy, because we know that God is with us, directing our paths and protecting our heart.
You can grow closer to God with my full Jesus Daily® Devotional Book at fine bookstores everywhere.
Pray: “Father, reveal the path of life you have for me. Allow me to spend more time with you and listen to your Sprit. Guide me into becoming the person you want me to be.”
