Fog settles in and tries to disorient you. All you can see is a square foot in any direction. So you keep moving forward. One foot in front of the other.
The path in front of you is dark, so you hold your light steady, just enough light to see the next step. And then you take that step, and you can see the next one, and if you keep going, before you know it, you’ll be through the dark path and the light of day starts to dawn, and the world gets a little brighter.
It’s easy to say that, if you’re standing in the light, filled with the day surrounding you. But when the darkness settles in, sometimes it’s easy to forget. That’s why you must press forward. You must trust.
A youth pastor once said “Remember in the dark, what God told you in the Light.”
Trust is filled with obedience, they go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other, they make each other honest.
“I’m trying to trust you Lord.” “I know you’re in this but today’s going to be hard” “I want to trust you but I don’t want to go through this.” So many of those phrases are piercing our hearts. But each ask of obedience is an opportunity to trust.
The harder the ask, the more we get to trust Him. The harder the obedience the more the blessing.
“Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.” Psalm 128:1
