There are many points in our lives when we’ve made our plans and we’re following along the path we had laid out for ourselves in order to reach a goal we’ve set out for...along the way we’ll find speed bumps, road blocks and forks in the road...and in most of the time we’ll find ourselves along a very different path than the one we originally set out for. Our Heavenly Father understands our hearts.
God will often motivate us toward a certain goal in order to lead us along the path He has paved for us. We can spend our whole lives mapping out our route but God’s route is better than you knew existed. If only you knew the path He has for you, we’d never try to create our own.
Once we begin to take the step, God brushes off the step and shows us our footing. Take the step, He’ll give you a firm footing.
You may think you’re running after one dream when really He is motivating you toward one dream just to lead you along what He really has for you. Even when we think the grass is green where we’re at...the grass is greener, the water is fresher, where He is leading us.
“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
“But now let me show you a way of life that is best of all."
1 Corinthians 12:31
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters,17. he refreshes my soul.18. He guides me along the right paths for His Name’s sake.”
