“He plucked me out of a pit of confusion, even out of the quicksand; he placed my feet on a rock and established my steps.” (Psalms 40: 2, International Standard Version)
Confusion is not a natural state. We don’t need to feel as if our thoughts are in a muddle or if as if decisions and right footsteps are elusive or unclear. We have a rescue from this belief chaos and lack of clarity and that feeling of overwhelm that often comes with this confusion.
We have God’s loving Christ to reach out to us, right where we are, and pull us out and up above the fray to a clear line of vision, where all things settle and make sense. This inspired Comforter is always at the ready to show us that we are not alone, but, rather, at one with God, established on a rock that is never unsteady and always under our feet.
When we feel confused and afraid, we can turn away from the human senses and opinion, its pros and cons and ups and downs, and instead turn to God, to Love. The Christ is with us and at the ready. There is always a clear answer. There is always a loving presence. There is always harmony where the discord seems to be—a ready and established concord to feel and know.
Your steps are established. God’s purpose for you is at hand and His clear voice of wisdom is ready to lead the way home to peace.
