Your steps are directed by Me, even though your journey often feels haphazard. The path that lies before you now is veiled in uncertainty: You have choices to make but too little information to see the way you should go. Taking the next step feels risky—like leaping into the unknown. The best thing you can do at such times is cling to Me. Imagine a young girl walking along busy city streets with a trustworthy adult. She may feel overwhelmed by all the sensory stimulation, all the possible ways to get lost. However, if she keeps holding on to the adult’s hand, she will get safely to her destination. Similarly, as you cling to My hand for help and guidance, you are ultimately safe.
Though you may not know the way you should go, you do know the One who is the Way. Stay near Me, and you will not go astray. Because I am sovereign over your life, I actually direct your steps and make them sure even when they feel random to you. Talk with Me about your uncertainty, your fear of making wrong choices. Remember that the most important choice you make moment by moment is to stay in communication with Me. This is how you cling to My hand. This is how you trust My guiding Presence as you go—step by step—along the path you cannot see.
A man’s steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand his own way?
~ Proverbs 20:24
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
~ John 14:6 [NKJV]
A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.
~ Proverbs 16:9 [AMP]
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 [NKJV]
