It can be frustrating not knowing where your life is going. At times it feels like you going around in circles
and at times it can feel like you are wandering about aimlessly. Then there are days when it seems like
nothing is happening. But I want to tell you that in the midst of all those things, God is directing your
life. Even when you can’t make sense of the things happening in your life God is in total control.
There is nothing to be worried about. You don’t have to lose sleep wondering what next.
The Lord cares about every detail of your life. Everything about you and your life matters to Him.
Look at how God led Peter. The way God leads us is so amazing!
In Acts 9:32 we are introduced to a man names Aeneas who lived in Lydda. Aeneas was paralyzed
and had been bed ridden for eight years. Peter goes on to heal him and the whole town of Lydda
and Sharon turn to the Lord! (Acts 9:35)
That was really amazing but the Lord was not done directing Peter. In a nearby town called Joppa a woman
named Tabitha fell sick and died. The disciples heard Peter was in Lydda so they called for him.
When Peter arrived in Joppa he raised Tabitha from the dead which brought more people to the
Lord. (Acts 10:5). But the Lord was not finished with Peter. In a town called Caesarea there was a man
named Cornelius. He was a Gentile and until then the good news was only been proclaimed to the Jews.
Salvation was closed to the Gentiles until then. One day an angel of the Lord appeared to him and told
him to go to Joppa to call Peter.
“And now send men to Joppa and have them call for and invite here a certain Simon whose surname is
Peter; He is lodging with Simon a tanner, whose house is by the seaside.”
Acts 10:5, 6
The Lord knew exactly where Peter was. He knew his address. He knew who he was staying with.
Off course He knew, the Lord led him there!!
Because Peter was in the right place at the right time he was instrumental in the Gospel being preached
to the Gentile’s.
Because the Lord directed Peter’s steps he was able to be at the right place at the right time. On his
own Peter would never have been able to pull that off.
The Lord is directing our every step friends. Even if it doesn’t seem like it, He is.
It may feel scary but the way He leads us is amazing! Be expectant. Bring your frustrations to Him.
He really does have amazing things in store for you. It may seem like you are in the middle of nowhere
but the Lord is taking you somewhere. His hand is on you and He is directing your every step.
The way He leads us is so amazing!
Bless you friends!
Thank you for this message of encouragement that He is directing even when I can’t make sense of what is currently happening in my life!
You welcome Lynn. His directing may not make sense at times but He has our good in mind.
May you see more and more blessings, the freedom and the peace that come with His leading.
