Do you ever feel like you’re going in circles and not making any progress? At least not the kind of progress you were expecting.
Are the constant demands of our world pulling you in a million different ways, causing you to question if you’re headed in the right direction?
If you’re like me, you have plans and dreams you want to fulfill. But life is confusing at times. And most days it seems like you’re just surviving instead of living out those dreams or accomplishing your goals.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to wake up every morning and be assured you’re on the right path towards your goals? To know with certainty that you’re headed in the right direction? To feel confident with each step, without constantly questioning yourself?
Too many times I’ve second-guessed a decision or wrestled with what to do.
I used to try figuring things out on my own, but that would only lead to frustration, worry and unwanted stress.
Over time I learned a much better approach. Instead of trying to figure things out on my own, I would go to God first in prayer and ask Him for help.
“Show me the right path, Oh LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you” (Psalm 25:4-5).
As I spend time praying, reading my Bible and waiting on direction from God, I become less stressed and more peaceful.
My circumstances don’t always change right away, but my heart and attitude does. I find myself worrying less and worshipping God more for His goodness and grace.
God’s Truth always has an answer to our uncertainty when it comes to heading in the right direction.
“The LORD is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way. The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness to all who keep His covenant and obey his demands” (Psalms 25:8-10).
If you’re unsure about some things in your life, don’t wait another day to figure it out on your own. Make sure your heart is in the right place, and then ask God to help you. Once you’ve asked, trust that God is directing you.
If you know you’ve gotten on the wrong path, seek God for direction instead of looking to the world for answers. As you take steps to follow and obey God’s voice, He will lovingly show you the way.
Dear Lord, Help my sweet friend come to You when she’s in need of direction. Remind her that the world can’t offer what she deeply longs for and doesn’t hold her future, but You certainly do. Thank you for guiding her today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Psalm 32:8, “The LORD says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.’” (NLT)
