A Word from a brother who has been set free!
The following was a word of encouragement that I received from a brother in Christ who is in prison, yet who is more free than many in the world today.
Sometimes the path of life seems impossible, steep and lengthy. I have no strength and no will for the journey.
Then I remember God knew this path, long before I was called to walk it. He has always known the difficulties I would experience, the pain that I could never explain to another. He knows and offers His presence.
Perhaps you're overwhelmed with sadness today. It may be the weight of a difficult ministry; the worry of a hard marriage; the sorrow of a struggling child; the care of an aging parent; other troubles that come with life.
“ SURELY” you say, “God would not have me walk this way. There must be another, easier path for me to travel.”
But are any of us wise enough to know that "some other way" would make us into better and wiser children?
NO, our father in heaven knows the best path, out of all possible paths, to bring us to completion (PSALM 142:3).
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
His ways are higher than ours; His thoughts than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:9).
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
We can humbly take the path He has marked out for us today, and do so in absolute trust in His infinite wisdom and love. He is wiser and more loving than we can ever know. He who sees, has foreseen, and will not lead us astray. Be still and know that He is God. For pathways are sometimes steep and rough. Are they not what He brings?
But what He is, will always be enough to see us through. God will never lead you down a wrong path. AMEN ......End quote.... Please keep this precious brother in your prayers saints. If you wish to view more blogs from this brother click on the red label below that reads: Behind Bars But Free
