Day 1

 

Scripture

Since You are my rock and my fortress, You lead me and guide me for Your Name’s sake.” (Psalm 31:4, TLV)

Heart Thoughts

When life throws you a curve ball, it’s easy to feel lost, confused or like everything has come to a grinding halt. You may feel like you no longer have a clear sense of the future.  Maybe you lost a good job and you don’t know what the future holds. Maybe you recently went through a divorce and your whole life direction has changed. Maybe you did not get into the college you planned for or get the job of your dreams.  You may be wondering, “What do I do now?”

You are in the perfect place to run into the mighty fortress who is our God.  He has promised you two great things in His word. He will “lead” you.  That means He will clear the path before you. He will get out in-front and make sure the path is safe and secure for you.  He also promises you that He will “guide” you.  As He is clearing out the road in-front of you, He will help you understand why He is doing what He is doing. He will teach you how to achieve your purpose in life. He will equip you and make sure you are strong and able to handle all that is in-front of you. He will show you how to walk in the path of life and blessing. He does all this for His own Name’s sake.

The key is that you have to trust in His Name and call upon His Name. We can have confidence because in His Name He has already spoken the cosmos into reality, he created a nation out of one man, he gave victory to a shepherd boy against a giant. He even defeated death. His name has already overcome!

You have to know that He will take the lead in your life because He wants His Name to be magnified in and through you.  The trials that come your way are just a stepping stone in the direction of your next victory.  You may experience tragedy or loss in this life, but for the sake of His Name He is going to lead you and guide you out of this place to a place of victory, to a place of blessing.

Don’t let fear of the future paralyze you; instead, trust that for His Name sake He is going to lead you out of this situation. Though the enemy may roar like a lion at you, the One who goes ahead of you has a reputation for slaying enemy lions!

Brachah “Blessing”

May the One whose Name is high and exalted, our God and King, go before you today for His Name’s sake.  May you have full assurance in your heart that Adonai Elohim, Lord-God, cuts the trail ahead of you and will guide you on His path.  May you be blessed today for His Name’s sake.
