A couple of days ago on my walk, I was coming up to an open field. I noticed that the grass and weeds had been burned. Just the previous day, I had passed the same spot and marveled at the lushes green sprouting up everywhere.
When I looked closer, I noticed the path that was leading through the field had been untouched by the fire. I was pondering on God’s beautiful provisions for us. He leads us safely on our paths, though everything around us seems to go up in flames. God promises to be with us through these fiery trials.
When I will pass through fiery days –
No soul found by my side –
Protect my path, secure my ways
Help me in You to hide.
Keep my feet from walking off
The path You have for me.
With You the ground is safe and soft.
Here’s where I need to be.
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid or terrified because of them,
for the LORD your God goes with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
