He Directs Our Paths

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Prov 3:5-6)

We are to trust God with all our hearts and not depend on what we know. We may not always know what lies ahead. At all times, we should include God in everything we do. This way, we give Him a chance to keep us on the right track. Nothing is so serious that God can’t solve it, and nothing is too small that God can’t care about it. It is like the relationship between the Lord Jesus Christ and the universe. He is so big that He fills the entire universe, and He is so small that He lives in our hearts. If we have faith in God, our anxiety and unease can be minimized when things are tough.

Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands. (Isa 49:15-16a)

Our parents step into their new role the day we are born, yet their official capacity ends on the day they (or we) pass away. God, on the other hand, was our Father even before the beginning of time, and will continue to be so into eternity in the heavenly kingdom. His loving presence is permanent.

God of the Living

Death cannot praise you…… the living man, he shall praise you, as I do this day; the father shall make known your truth to the children.

Isa 38:18-19

King Hezekiah was no stranger to God’s works. His zeal for God had restored true worship in Judah, and God had delivered him from the king of Assyria with an extraordinary miracle. But when he was sick and near death, he must have felt unprepared and even filled with bitterness. In a little passage in Isaiah 38, he wrote down what was in his heart: “In the prime of my life, I shall go to the gates of Sheol”, he lamented, “I am deprived of the remainder of my years”.
