‘You will show me the path of life. In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forever more.’ Psalm 16:11 NKJ
Sometimes the path before us appears to be overgrown causing our way to become obscured and unclear. We stumble around in the scrub trying to clear away a direction of our own, wasting time only to find ourselves hopelessly lost.
God promises that He will direct us upon the path of life. We simply need to be still long enough, practice patience and lean into His presence in order to discern His voice.
As our eyes and ears are opened, our hearts quickening to His Spirit, emerging through the obstacles of life, His way becomes evident. It is in the contentment of resting securely in Him that His voice becomes most audible.
‘ That is God’s call to us- simply to be people who are content to live close to Him and to renew the kind of life in which the closeness is felt and experienced.-Thomas Merton.
Take some time out today, step out of the scrub, into the clearing and rest in Him.
