Good Morning Everyone, thank you for joining me (Dee’s Thoughts) today and I love your comments. Please keep them coming. I don’t know if you have felt this way before, but I would guess you have, I know I have. You start on a path that seems clear at the time with purpose and vision then as time passes the path appears to get narrow and vision and purpose weakens. When this happens, does that mean we are on the wrong path? Not necessarily!
There is much in the Word of God that refers to paths such as; Proverbs 15:19: The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway. Also in Isaiah 26:7: The path of the righteous is level; O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth. Also, Proverbs 3:5-6 says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
All of us have seen and/or driven in fog at some time or another and it is not very pleasant is it? When we are in the thick of it our ability to see clearly is obscured, we fall into a state of mental confusion where everything seems blurred.
When it comes it seems to come out of nowhere with no warning! Seems like one minute we can see clearly and the next we can’t see anything. Fog usually sets in gradually and drifts in a little at a time until we can’t see anything at all in front of us.
Fog parallel’s our lives spiritually as well in many other ways. One minute everything seems so clear to us, the path we are on and where it is taking us seems very clear. We are hopeful and excited for what the future holds. Then, fog set’s in and we find ourselves in a crisis state feeling fatigued and anxious. Our once positive path is now beginning to fade right before our eyes. . Now, all of a sudden that path is questionable and is not as clear to us as it once was. What we once believed and embraced has become a path of doubt and we are losing our way.
Sometimes God will use the events of our lives (even fog) to guide us and shift us to get our attention. Our security is in God and He wants us to trust in Him, not in our own strength to get where we are going. It is in those times of anxiety, worry and doubt that He is the closest. We cannot always fix those things that go wrong in our lives even though we try hard to and think we can. Our way and efforts may work for a time but it is in those times when we don’t know what to do or when we feel the most helpless that the Lord is the closest.
Jesus promised to give us peace John 14:27, so if your path has become cloudy put your trust in Him, He will keep you on the right path.
