‘Give your burdens to the LORD, and He will take care of you.’

When we follow God, it leads to life and to the level path He has prepared for us. But when we follow our own ideas, our own choices, to the exclusion of the Lord in our lives, the path can become a struggle. We can make mistakes or rely on our own wills and opinions. We can depend on ourselves, when we should be depending on Him, and this leads to unexpected consequences and a path that is choked with problems and issues. But when we follow Him, it opens the way for us to discover the pathway that leads to life.

Proverbs 12:28 ‘Living right is a pathway that leads to life and away from death.’ (Contemporary English Version)

Sometimes we simply don’t know which way to go, and even there the Lord is waiting to take us by the hand and turn things around. He may not take us down the road we were expecting, but He will take us to the place that He wants us to be.

Isaiah 42:16 ‘I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on unfamiliar paths. I will turn darkness into light before them and rough places into level ground. These things I will do for them, and I will not forsake them.’

He will lead you and He will never leave you nor forsake you.

No two individuals travel the exact same path through life. Every person has his or her own path to find and to walk. When we look at others, we may think that their path is much easier or better than ours, but that is not the case. Each person has their own issues, challenges, and struggles, but the Lord wants to lead each one of us along the best particular pathway for us as individuals.

Hebrews 12:1 ‘…let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us.’

Each one of us has a different race to run and a different path to follow, but we have the same Lord Who will bring us all through it all.

Enroute, He will remove mountains and fill valleys and bring us out victorious.

Acts 2:28 ‘You have made known to me the paths of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence.’

Isaiah 26:7 ‘The path of the righteous is level; You clear a straight path for the righteous.’ (Christian Standard Bible)

Psalm 23:3 ‘He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honour to His Name.

Your ‘mountain moving God’ is with you all the way!
