THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

by Struthers Cumbernauld


'The Lord your God who went ahead of you on your journey.....to search out places for you to rest and to show you the way you should go'  Deut 1:33

Life is a journey with some easy routes, sharp corners and steep climbs.  Our Lord goes before us to prepare the way.  He knows when life gets too much; when we need a rest or need clear guidance concerning a decision to be made.   

As you journey in the present, remember that He is in control of life.  He has already gone ahead into your tomorrow's.  He knows the walking, running and resting times.  He knows the difficult choices and the easy path's too. He knows it all.

We therefore cannot face any surprises in all our tomorrow's.  Every difficult decision we can leave entirely in His care.  As Samuel Rutherford said 'Your Guide is good company, and knoweth all the miles, and the up's and down's in the way'.
