Let Him Lead

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me . . . (Psalm 23:4)

It doesn’t matter where we are or what’s going on around us, as long as Jesus is leading. Fear can find no place in a heart that is following and abiding in Him. If the Lord has led you into a difficult season, the victory is nigh. Stay close enough to hear His voice and enjoy His peace, even in the midst of the storm. Jesus never leaves those He leads.

Some of us do not go forward, because we fear the consequence of confronting certain people, situations, or realities. However, growth is impossible without obstacles and strain. God uses life's difficulties to train us to look to Him, and we discover the depths of His love in those trying seasons. The work He is accomplishing in you is dependent upon His Grace, and nothing else. If you have been stripped of every other resource, good - - that is exactly where God wants you. So go forward, and He will provide everything you need on the way. Trust Him. He will not leave you.

Let’s Pray – Dear Father, where You lead me, I will follow. Give me an ear to hear and a heart to obey. I want to be found in You — a sheep that knows Your voice and will not follow another. Amen.


  1. Amen Pastor. Such a timely word for me. I pray that in these trying times that I would keep myself close to my Lord. To not allow myself to get distracted by what’s going on around me!

  2. So true...stripped way from anything and everything of me.
    But if I want to be conformed into His image .I must follow His lead and road.
