You’ve felt a stir within you and you know God is getting ready to make a move in your life; you just don’t know when and where. Then it happens! You see a path in front of you with a fork in the road. You can go left or right; both paths are uncertain. Which do you choose?
I’ve come across several people lately who are facing this scenario. It’s a tough one. Sometimes God lays the path right in front of you and you just have to keep stepping, but sometimes there’s a fork and you have to make a decision one way or the other. As I so often say, if you are submitted to and trusting God, you can be assured that you are right where you need to be at any given moment. You just have to be willing to take any step He leads you to take.
When there’s two promising but uncertain paths presented before you, the best response you can take is to pray, pray, pray. As you pray it is going to settle on your heart which path you are to take. Whichever path you choose will be the right one. His Word is true; He’s directing your path so you have nothing to fear in making the decision. Take the step you feel most led to take and you can have peace as you trust that God is truly directing your path and since He is you know that He will present a closed door if you’re starting to take a wrong step.
So, prayerfully make the decision and don’t be afraid to take the step! As you are trusting Him and submitting to Him, you can be assured He will not let you go any way that is outside of His will for you.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” (Proverbs 16:3)
