“I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on paths they have not known. I will turn darkness to light in front of them and rough places into level ground. This is what I will do for them, and I will not abandon them.” (Isaiah 42: 16, Christian Standard Bible)
No matter what seems to concern us as we walk through our lives, we have a trusty guide. God is with us to reveal light along our path as we go forward with Him, one step at a time.
We may feel blind and uncertain. We may wonder if we should stay where we are or move ahead to something unknown. We may feel alone, or that others in our lives add to our burden or just don’t understand us.
But we have this promise from God. We are not abandoned, and our needs are known. God is our companion in the dark, providing ready wisdom along with the comfort that eases us in each new moment. Those rough patches may seem like obstacles, but God’s goodness, kindness, smooths them out.
Our confidence is not in personal knowledge, but in receptivity and trust. We may not know the way. We may not see how things can come together. But God is ahead of us and with us at the same time. He knows the way. He knows His purpose for us which is loving, progressive, right, safe, and good.
