So he will do to me whatever he has planned. He controls my destiny. (Job 23:14)
Job shared these words during his season of intense trial. They reveal God’s resoluteness to lead and accomplish his purposes in Job’s life. God was working to help him fulfill his highest call and purpose, to glorify God! This was Job’s story, and this is our story as well.
The Holy Spirit leads God’s children on a predetermined path. This path is created by God, marked by God, and protected by God. We walk upon the path under his leadership. We are created by God for his purposes, we are marked by God, and we are protected by God. We are wonderfully made for a plan of his making. Glorifying him is our highest honor and purpose, a plan and destiny he controls.
Father you lead me on a path of your choosing. One designed by you, for the purpose of glorifying you and your kingdom. Thank you for leading and controlling my destiny. Amen.
“And don’t let us yield to temptation”
