The road before you may look different than you expected.
You have been detoured and are not sure where the detour will take you.
Don’t worry, God does.
He knows what lies before you and His plan for you will not be destroyed by the detour. It only means that it may take a little longer to get to God’s destination for you, but you will get there.
Through Jesus, this promise is for you:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
Isaiah 43:1-2 NIV
Do not fear.
God is not suggesting it. He is not asking you to consider it, He is not giving it to you as an option… it is a command: Do not fear.
You are a chosen, treasured child of God, redeemed by the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross for you. God has called you out of the place you have been and planted you in a new place.
A new place that has new possibilities, new problems, new opposition to face and new victories to experience. Not one of these things is meant to be handled all by yourself. You are not alone, God is with you.
Rest today in His grace and mercy – He has an endless supply for you to use.
