"Thou wilt show me the path of life: in the presence is the fullness of joy: and at the right hand there are pleasures forevermore."
God will show us the path of life...if we are seeking it. He promises to lead us but it's a promise fulfilled only ~ as we are seeking.
The Great Divorce is one of my all time favorite classics from C.S. Lewis. I try and read it at least once or twice a year. I have learned from the principles that Mr. Lewis wove into the story. This quote comes from the introduction and ties closely with my thoughts on Psalm 16:11...
"We are not living in a world where all roads are radii of a circle and where all, if followed long enough, will therefore draw gradually nearer and finally meet at the centre: rather in a world where every road, after a few miles, forks into two, and each of those into two again, and at each fork you must make a decision."
I can say with Mr. Lewis ~ "My thoughts, exactly."
The path of life, that leads to God, is about our daily choices and leading from the Lord. He promises to lead, guide, and protect ~ as we are seeking to follow Him, but He does promise.
This path is not the favored of choice, nor has it been in any given time period, but it does lead to life. This path leads to life, fullness of joy, and pleasures forevermore...eternal treasure found only in Him and in His guidance, as we surrender to follow His leading.
Lovely thoughts this morning from Psalm 16:11 and so worth my four o'clock morning.
