Finding Direction

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight [direct your path]."1

A NASA official involved in space exploration was talking to a reporter about humans landing on Mars. The reporter was concerned about how they would be able to return to earth.

"That involves a highly complex plan," the space official said. "It begins with the words, 'Our Father who art in Heaven.'"

Jokes aside, the reality is that most people pray at some time or another. Even those who rarely pray often do when they are in trouble. How much wiser it is to daily commit, surrender, and trust our life to God and seek His guidance in all that we are and do—at all times.

Sometimes it's hard to see how God is directing or making our path straight—especially when we're going through a series of rough times. In time, however, when we have daily committed, surrendered, and trusted our life to God and look back, we can see how God has led us all the way. It is true, all things do work together for good to those who love God2—even if it is eventually!

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank You that when I commit and trust my life and way to You, depend on You for wisdom and guidance, and acknowledge You in every area of my life, You have promised to direct my path and make my way straight. For this I am truly thankful. Gratefully in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV).
2. See Romans 8:28.
