“If this is to be a Happy New Year, a year of usefulness, a year in which we shall live to make this earth better, it is because God will direct our pathway. How important then, to feel our dependence upon Him!”
– Matthew Simpson –
“I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.” Proverbs 4:11-12;18
God Directs From the Dark
Sometimes God brings a change or a challenge to shake us loose from our independence and turn us back to dependence on him. We are closest to finding his will, our happiness, and our usefulness, when we are completely in the dark waiting for that first gleam of dawn, depending entirely on him to cause the sun to rise.
