When you feel that you are walking alone, remember this verse: “In the wilderness where you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place” (Deuteronomy 1:31).
A lady once sang a very meaningful song. It described the Lord taking her along a beach. Turning back, she saw two sets of footprints on the sand – her own and the Lord’s. After sometime, she was taken along a path strewn with stones and thorns. There she could only see one set of footprints. She asked Him “Lord! You came with me while I was walking on the sandy tracks. But, how is it that You have left me alone here amidst the rocks and thorny bushes?” The Lord replied “My dear! This set of footprints, are not yours, but it’s Mine. When you had to walk amidst stones and thorns, I carried you in My arms. That is why your footprints are not there. You see only Mine!”
How loving is our God and How true is the word of God! Yes, He carries you in His arms during hard times. He has also promised: “Fear not. I am with you. (Isaiah 41:10)” There is nothing called ‘walking alone’ in the life of a child of God. He will be always with You to carry You when your feet slips. Even at the very moment you experience hardships, know in your heart that He is still carrying you into your destiny. You will press forward to see the small cloud bringing showers of heavy rain in your life!
A Prayer for Today
Loving Father, You created me. You gave me desires, willpower and goals in my life. Now I am afraid that I may not achieve them for Your glory. I am unable to press forward. There is no one to help me either. Help me to see You and feel Your presence. Give me the assurance that You and Your angels are with me. I believe that You are my Father who will neither leave me nor forsake me. I believe that I am safe in Your arms. Carry me through to my destiny. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
