That’s a sign that always creates some immediate stress for me. I am on my way, know where I’m going, and then all of a sudden – Road Closed! Detour Ahead.
God has a plan, a path for your development and long-term safety. When we are veering off track, He puts up roadblocks to steer us back to the right path. Look back at your track record of designing your path…your road to “success”. My track record was filled with either wrong destinations(what I thought success meant), wrong roads to the correct destinations, and often times both wrong roads to the wrong destinations. Believe me, 2 wrongs do NOT equal a right. My life really started to change when I started to accept God’s “detours” from my agenda and trust He does His job better than I do His job. The uneasiness when we hit God’s detour, that is the crucial moment. Satan is ready to pounce, God is calling us with open arms. Who will you trust to be your loving guide and companion on your journey.
Be confident that when the time is right (His time), the road before you will suddenly clear…through no effort of your own. What you have longed for and worked for will be presented to you by your Lord freely as you seek His guidance.
Today, be ready for the “Road Closings” in your agenda and seek His detour to develop the mind of Christ to navigate your path more gloriously and efficiently.
Dear God my Father,
Today I persevere along the path that You have prepared for me, depending on Your strength to sustain me for I am too weak to proceed on my own. The storms in my life are making me weak. I am learning to not fear my weakness, for I am beginning to understand that my weakness is the stage on which Your Power and Glory perform most brilliantly.
As I walk this path I wait with anticipation and faith for Your miracles to unfold before me. I know that all miracles cannot be seen by the eye, but for those who live by faith can see them clearly. Help me Lord live by faith and not by sight, help me to see You in all Your Glory. In Christ’s revealing name, AMEN
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
We live by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7
But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
