The Way Of Life

The last two posts were quite lengthy. So how about we take it easy today.

Iโ€™ll lead with a verse that makes a strong case for being rooted in Christโ€” ๐˜ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ง๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ซ๐˜ฐ๐˜บ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ (Acts 2:28, NLT).

January for most is a month of planning. We set goals with good intentions but as we know, life happens. At the moment, I am staring out the window at a heap of snow that’s growing by the minute. I am not a winter bird, so I am less than pleased. However, I am better off than the cars with blinking hazard lights stuck in mounds of snow. The weather network reported it, so the snow is not a surprise. I am certain care was taken by the drivers i.e., winter tires, a full tank of gas et al., to prepare. Yet here they are, stuck.

Life gets that way, more times that we care for. But praise God that in His presence we can rejoice, even when stuck. We can rejoice in the fact that the God who parted the red sea in days past is the same God today. We can rejoice in knowing that our stateโ€” being stuck, is not a kryptonite for God. We know full well that wisdom and knowledge come from Him. He revealed mysteries to Daniel, and He will do the same for us. He blessed Solomon with wisdom, and He will do the same for us. It is good to plan. By all means please do. Write them down and make them plain. Set them before you and automate the reminders. But make room for Jesus. In fact, I would recommend giving Him the room i.e., your plans. After all, He is the Way. He directs the steps of the godly, and delights in every detail of our lives (Psalm 37:23), He sets our feet upon a rock and gives us a firm place to stand (Psalm 40:2), He leads us by still waters (Psalm 23:2) and works all things together for our good (Romans 8:28) when we delight in Him also.

โ€œYou have shown meโ€ connotes control. He is ahead, guiding. (You) Submit. He is also behind, guarding. (You) Rest. Our plans are good, but His are better.
