It takes courage to follow God where we sense Him leading. Sometimes the path is clearly obvious – a well-worn trail blazed by the Saints that have gone before us. However, there are other times that we sense Him leading in a new direction, on a new path. In some ways, it’s not even a path; it’s an uncharted trail that has yet to be traversed.
Courage isn’t something that comes naturally to most.
But I will sing of thy might; I will sing aloud of thy steadfast love in the morning. For thou hast been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.
There are stories woven throughout Scripture of God’s great love for his people. We see him parting seas, crushing boulders, and quietening storms. He feeds the hungry and heals the sick. He cries with those who mourn, comforts the lonely, and stands with the forgotten. His character is consistent of a loving and faithful God who meets his people in their time of need.
Why then, do we so easily forget that the God we serve is the same Godthat has always been?
