Level Ground

winter clear roadTeach me to do your will,

for you are my God;

may your good Spirit

lead me on level ground.

Psalm 143:10

One description of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.  I guess many of us have done things that are “insane” based on that premise.  For instance, I know that being undisciplined about exercise and good food choices will not lead to reaching a healthy weight but yet I get on the scale every day in hopes that the way I ate yesterday will have no effect on the reading on the scale.  That is just one example of many, where my actions don’t line up with my goals.  So again, I have some work to do.

Many of us try to lead our lives without God.  We seek to fill the hole in our hearts and minds through a myriad of things that never completes our lives.   We seek a place on level ground where we can experience fulfilling peace and joy.  It is a God-size hole that can be only be filled by Him.  He brings about deliverance, peace and healing through a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our attempts to live without Him don’t get us where we need to be, yet we try it over and over expecting a different result each time.

Trying something new requires courage and faith.  Stepping toward the Father and committing your journey forward in Him and through Him requires boldness and strength.  But wherever you are in your faith journey, today is a good day to come closer.  It is a good day to try living with the Lord.  He is the way to fill the void that you have been missing.  He is the way to reach level ground.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11
