Have you ever stood deep in the middle of the forest? So deep you really don’t know the difference between north and south? Although the pine needles may smell great, and the silence can be a sweet substitute for the usual noise in our lives, eventually you have to find your way out. Yet everything looks the same. Worse yet is that there is no discernible path in or out. You’re not lost; you just don’t know where you are or how to get out. Some would say that you are stuck.
We all need a path to follow. A well worn and time tested route that allows us to get to where we need to be. Without a path, our efforts are usually in vain. Try as we might, we only make things worse. We wander even deeper into the woods. If we only could know where to begin…
Spiritual growth can accelerate when we are on the right path. The Lord tells us that His word “… is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105). He promises us that He will give us direction for living. Don’t know which way to turn? Search His word. Feeling stuck behind walls of guilt and shame? God promises us, in His scriptures, forgiveness.
The path to a spiritual breakthrough is not found in a straight line or a formula. Yet there is a process tested and found helpful: faith breakthroughs.
You don’t have to be stuck. Nor do you have to wonder where to begin your journey to the life God wants for you!
