“The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, He who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying. In Damascus the ethnarch under Aretas the king was guarding the city of the Damascenes in order to seize me, and I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and so escaped his hands” (2 Corinthians 11:31-33).
The Lord is God of all and knows all things. He through whom all things have their being has come to lead the way for as many as would follow Him along the narrow way of salvation. We need not focus upon the particulars, but see the simple reality that God calls and there are those who will follow. Come then into the presence of the Lord and walk with Him now and forever.
Lord, I often make more complex the way things are. Help me I pray to see through all of the things that get in the way in order that I may know the simplicity of the Gospel. You have come that as many as trust in You would have everlasting life. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of life and help me not to wander from the path You have set before me. Let me look to You, and not circumstances, to always guide me.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way for each one of us. Help me to take Your hand knowing that all things are now, as they always have been, in Your hands. Grant that I would see through those things that get in the way and follow You no matter what the earthly cost. You have and will provide for every circumstance. Help me to trust You above all things. Amen.
