Everyone loves the 23rd psalm. So much so that we can easily skim over it without letting it sink into our hearts. Several days ago, something stood out to me.
He leads me beside still waters.
He leads me in paths of righteousness.
I couldn’t help but think of times when the water around me was anything but still and the path I was tempted to choose certainly didn’t lead to righteousness.
Then, I read this verse in Elisabeth Elliot’s book on suffering. “The Lamb will lead them to living fountains of water.” Jesus is always leading us to life. To peace. To righteousness. He never hands us a compass and wishes us luck. He will lead us.
Which made me think, if he’s doing the leading, I must do the following. And I thought of (what I consider to be) a gem of a verse hidden in 2 Chronicles 20:12.
When faced with a situation that felt scary and out of their control, the people cried, “We are powerless. We don’t know what to do.” Can anyone relate? 🙋♀️”But,” they continue, “our eyes are on you.”
👉Prayer: I feel powerless, Lord. I don’t know what to do. But, my eyes are on you and I’m following where you’re going because I know you will lead me to peace, righteousness, and life.
