God as Your Companion
It is a part of life that the people and the environment change around you. The older you get the more you experience this to be true. However, you have one sure companion. “For the mountains shall depart, And the hills be removed; But my kindness shall not depart from thee, Neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, Saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee” (Isaiah 54:10).
Imagine that your life is a road that is winding along the way. The Word of God, wise counselors, prayer, and the Holy Spirit give you enough light to see a little way in front of you, but you don’t see the entire journey. As you are navigating through life there are signs that give you information about detours, sharp turns, destinations, harsh conditions, etc. The signs just help you prepare for whatever may happen in God’s direction for your life. If you heed the signs, your journey to the destiny God has for you will be smooth. And that’s the ultimate goal: Achieve God’s destiny for your life. Decide today to stay on God’s road. God’s road is the direction He has planned for your life. You won’t always understand the turns and detours, but stay on the road. If you stay on the road, then he shall never depart from you. Always know that God’s direction for your life is never wrong and He always has your best interest in mind.
The shuttles of His purpose move
To carry out His own design;
Seek not too soon to disapprove
His work, nor yet assign
Dark motives, when, with silent tread,
You view some sombre fold;
For lo, within each darker thread
There twines a thread of gold.
He knows the way you plod;
But leave the thread with God.
