“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16
I read this scripture yesterday. I re-read it. I read it again. And again. Just to make sure I believed it.
I really have no reason to not believe that God makes the rough places smooth. That He never leaves us or forsakes us. I’ve never experienced His abandonment in all my thirty-four years.
Still, I go through times where I have to say, “Lord, help me with my unbelief.”
I stand. I wait. I trust. Then, He takes too long.
But, His timing is perfect. And, in the meantime, when it seems the things around you are slowly crumbling, know that He holds all things together.
So, when in doubt, read His word. Re-read it. Read it again. And again.
He makes good on His promises. And, He will never leave us. As a matter of fact, He will never give up on us either. I must wear Him out.
Except, He probably doesn’t get tired. That IS scripture. Right, Dad?
