Life Map

Jul 13, 2022

Have you ever wished you had a personal life map that you could unfold to show you exactly where God wanted you to go and what He wanted you to do? X marks the spot. . . you are here! Knowing we are on the right path and that Holy Spirit is with us is so important over the course of our life journey that God DID give us a personal life map with His Word. We just need to dig into it, really into it, and see what He says.

He even goes before us and prepares the path before we ever get there:

• See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. - Exodus 23:20 (NIV)

• For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. - Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

That means we can also follow securely in His footsteps so we know we are on the right path!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. -

• And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. - Matthew 28:20b (NIV)

• We who dwell in the shelter of the Most High rest in the shadow of the Almighty. We say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely He saves us from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He covers us with His feathers, and under His wings we find refuge; His faithfulness is our shield and rampart. We do not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at our side, ten thousand at our right hand, but it will not come near us. We make the Most High our dwelling – even the Lord, who is our refuge – so no harm befalls us, no disaster comes near our home. For He commands his angels concerning us to guard us in all our ways; they lift us up in their hands, so that we do not strike our foot against a stone. We tread upon the lion and the cobra; we trample the great lion and the serpent. The Lord says He rescues us and protects us for we acknowledge His name. We call on Him and He answers; He is with us in trouble and delivers us and honors us. With long life He satisfies us and He shows us His salvation because we love Him. - Psalms 91
