"And how blessed all those in whom You live,
whose lives become roads You travel;
They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks,
discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain!
God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and
at the last turn—Zion! God in full view!" (84:5-7)
I love "whose lives become roads You travel".
Knowing because of our choice to walk with our ABBA, no longer do we walk alone. Not that we ever did, it is just now we recognize Him.
I hate surprises. The suspense of not knowing. When I go to a movie, I like to know the ending beforehand. Otherwise, the suspense ruins it for me.
How He has taken that from us who are His......becoming our security, our leader, our road map. No longer are we wandering down the road of life - lost. Exposed to the elements, the dangers - hidden and seen. He is our protector. Our shield.
He has told us the "ending" of our journey - it is with Him - eternally. No longer do we wander, we can walk with "Godfidence". Knowing each step we take is a step taken with and "In" Him. Even when we take a wrong turn, because we have let go of His Hand, taking our focus off of Him and decided to take our own lead, He is still there. Sometimes gently, sometimes with a push or pull, setting us back on the right path.
He has taken the suspense of "not knowing" from our journey. No longer should the "surprises" which pop up, frighten us or cause doubt. Much of the time, they need to delight us, because we are focusing on Him, no longer on the fear of the unknown. We need to be seeing our journey through His eyes and celebrating life "In" Him. Trusting and resting "In" Him.
Knowing - all things are for His glory - sharing "our journey" with Him.
