Hello! Recently, while speaking with a friend about something that had been troubling me, The Lord gave him a message and it was simply that He would be a lamp before my feet.
I knew the Lord needed me to leave my job so he could guide me to where He wanted me to go next but I felt the need to know ahead of time so I would know EXACTLY where to go & what to look for. Afraid that I somehow would miss His message or something vital within where I would go next, I stayed at that job a little longer than I believe I should have.
My friend goes to explain that back in the day when they used lamps for seeing in the dark, that you could only see literally what was right in front of you. It wasn’t like a flashlight where you could see 20 ft ahead of you. You basically were only able to see where you were about to step.
I knew at this time that the Lord wanted to guide my every footstep. I knew that what it was that I wanted, probably wasn’t what He wanted me and had He told audibly, I wouldn’t have understood because where He ended up taking me was uncharted territories. Once again, I learned that when God wants to guide you, let Him guide you. Submit and fully give the situation over to Him because we know that His ways and His will is ALWAYS better than what we believe is best. It may sound cliche’ but sometimes you are going to have to walk by faith and not by sight.
