“1 Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.2 How long, O men, will you turn my glory into shame ? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods ? “Selah” 3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him. 4 In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. “Selah” 5 Offer right sacrifices and trust in the LORD.6 Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD. 7 You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound. 8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”
He is leading me. He is leading me in ways I don’t understand, in ways I don’t feel His immediate comfort and in ways I feel His breath ever near. He is leading me in ways I am excited to experience and in ways I don’t like very much, in ways I feel assured and in ways I don’t feel equipped to go…. So, I still myself in His presence and I choose to trust and rest with all of my heart in all of the ways my Savior and my Lord leads me….
And I ponder for a moment, if He saved me from the middle of my sin and the pit that I had worked myself into, I can feel comfort in knowing that He can lead me through any wilderness this earth has to present. He is my leader. He is my lover. He is my groom. He is my Father and He is my Sovereign God.
I can trust in His mercy. I can trust in His goodness. I can trust Him with today and with always….He leads me all the way to Himself each and every time….
