God required them to go to Egypt, a foreign land full of idols, where they would be safe—kept alive.
What do you want me to do Lord? Show me your will.
I may do things not knowing really why, and having doubts, but the Lord will guide me.
I may move in a direction, which I believe is God’s will, but not know what I’m doing or where I’m going; but the Lord knows and He directs my steps; His plan is set and He will determine the outcome.
“We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall” (Prov. 16:33).
I followed wise advice though I had other plans; and things seemed to work out to do it.
I am moving in that direction, though I encounter problems along the way and I fear more failure; but I move ahead—blindly.
I determine to push forward.
I look for an open door, a ray of light, a whisper saying “come this way.”
I plod ahead slowly, though at times gasping for air.
Little by little I am making progress, knowing that God leads me.
I have a promise and He has set my course. I know in my heart if I trust Him and hang on to the hope He gives me that I will complete the work that he has put in me to do—though most of the time I’m not sure exactly how to do it.
Show me what to do, Lord.
