“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 43:16,18-19

TODAY’S WORD…

.

I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters,
making a dry path through the sea.

.

But forget all that –
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

.

– Isaiah 43:16,18-19 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

Today, let’s thank the Lord our God, for helping us get through this last year;

for being there with us through thick and thin;

for filling us with hope

and for encouraging us to keep our eyes on Him…and move on.

.

Today is also a new day…just like every other…

with the Lord insisting with us not to look back.

Jesus said:

“Anyone who starts to plough and then keeps looking back

is of no use for the Kingdom of God.” (Lk 9:62)

He therefore instructs us to only look ahead,

and we should do as He says, because He knows what is good for us.

.

We are called ‘Christians’ because we are ‘followers of Christ”,

so let’s live up to our name and keep our focus on Him;

listen to Him;

place our full trust in Him;

and follow Him,

as we gladly allow Him to shepherd us through life.

.

For us, He will make a pathway through the wilderness,

He will create rivers in the dry wasteland!

.

The Lord, fills us with hope!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Lord, my God, thank You.

Thank You for always being here with me.

Lead me on, Lord. I trust in You!
