We are focused on taking just one step towards our dream for these 40 Days to Prepare for God’s Plans. Sometimes, that next step is so difficult to see. Or, there are so many steps, going in different directions, that we don’t know which step to take.
I know exactly how that feels. I am often unsure of that next step, or overwhelmed by the many possible steps. But, there is one step I know will always lead my way:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” ~ Psalm 119:105
Sitting in a quiet space, opening my Bible and reading God’s Word is always a worthwhile next step. In fact, it should be our first step because He promises to guide our way. If we spend time seeking God’s direction through the Bible, we will experience something miraculous:
“Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law.” ~ Psalm 119:18
The Creator of the universe will show us something. If we only sit still and read for a bit, seeking Him with all our heart, He will reveal something of Himself to us.
When we get tired or lose hope in our dreams, when we think nothing we are doing seems to be making any difference, we can turn to our Bibles:
“Remember your word to Your servant, in which You have made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your word has revived me.” ~ Psalm 119:49-50
We can be encouraged, refreshed. Our hope can be restored by reading God’s Word.
Our Bible is the best place to start when we are trying to figure out what the next step should be in pursuit of our dream. During these 40 days of preparation, spending time dwelling in Holy Scripture should be first on the list each day.
I love this song, Word of God Speak, to remind me of the power of the Bible in my life. Enjoy!
