How are you feeling during this global pandemic? Do you feel you’re a victim of circumstances? We certainly did not choose to walk this path. But if we look closely, there is another path that runs parallel to our present path. It is called the path of life. Let me explain.
Trains run on two tracks, not one. There is always a second track running parallel to the first. In the same way, every path in life we walk on has a parallel path. King David said, “You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence…” (Psalm 16:11). When we find ourselves on a difficult path, we must focus on the parallel path right alongside us. It is called the path of life. This path is filled with the joy of His presence. We experience this parallel path as we meet alone with God each day and practice His presence.
Let’s not waste this season. Let’s focus on the path of life. This path has a name. His name is Jesus. This is our season to draw close to Him and receive assurance and revelation for our future. Many years down the road when we look back on this season, we will be so glad we chose to focus on Jesus; the path of life.
