You reveal the path of life to me; in your presence is abundant joy; at your right hand are eternal pleasures.
- Psalms 16:11
The Lord is the One who reveals your life path to you.
He is your guide. He is the One in control!
Many of us strive to control our lives believing it will bring us a sense of security. In reality, we aren’t meant to carry the burdens of life on our own.
We were created to walk through life hand in hand with God.
He is the one who steers our lives, not us. At the end of the day, our lives are not our own.
By yielding to His control and His leading, we are able to flow more naturally in the present in His presence. And in His presence is abundant joy!
You can go through your schedule every day knowing that you are loved by the King of the universe, and He knows what is best. So even when things don’t follow the plan you made in your head, you can still have peace of mind knowing the Lord is in control.
Also remember: God is powerful, generous, loving, gracious, and on your side.
Today and every day, let the Lord reveal your path of life to you and He will fill you with His abundant joy!
“Lord, thank you for revealing your path of life to me. Help me to yield to your guidance today and every day. I only want what you want for me, because you know what’s best.”
