Don’t Expect a Straight Path

May 08, 2023

Today's Scripture

Psalm 25:4, TLB 

Show me the path where I should go, O Lord; point out the right road for me to walk.

Today's Word

God doesn’t always take us down a straight path. There will be detours, delays, and curves. There will be times when you feel like you’re going the wrong way. “God, I’m believing for promotion, healing, or freedom, but I’m seeing just the opposite.” Don’t get set on the method. The way you think it’s going to happen may not be the way God’s going to do it. What you can’t see is that on the path that seems to be going the wrong way, there’s a turn that leads to a shortcut that will catapult you ahead. That’s the way our God is. Where He’s leading you is going to be better than you’ve imagined. The reason it’s taking longer is because it’s going to be bigger than you thought, more rewarding, more fulfilling.  


Doors aren’t opening yet? People are against you? You don’t know what God is up to. You can’t see what He’s doing behind the scenes. Don’t be discouraged by what’s not changing. Your time is coming. 

Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You that You are the Most High God and that You have a way of making all the detours and seeming wrong ways in my life to finally work to my advantage. Show me the right path to walk. I believe that where You lead is better than I’ve imagined. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
