The Paths of the Lord - Part 4

The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
I will advise you and watch over you
Psalm 32:8

What an awesome Scripture!! The bottom line in all this talk on pathways is that the Lord as our lives under control. These have been some difficult years, but even so, I am determined to keep my eyes on Him. We are watching Him for this promise to come to pass:

You crown the year with a bountiful harvest;
even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.
Psalm 65:11 (NLT)

A prayer for this year as we serve the Lord in many nations:

For I am about to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness for my people to come home.
I will create rivers for them in the desert!
Isaiah 43:19 (NLT)

Once we have our own lives established on the paths of the Lord; once we are living according to His ways; once our course is established, then we will participate with Him in making pathways for God's people to come into His kingdom. I can't think of the greater privilege - to make pathways in the wilderness and rivers in the desert so that people everywhere can come flooding into God's Kingdom.

I am sure that we need to join our voices with John's:

He is a voice shouting in the wilderness:
'Prepare a pathway for the Lord's coming!
Make a straight road for him!' "
Mark 1:3 (NLT)

I can't think of a better way to prepare the way of the Lord than through worship.
