I AM Kept

on November 21, 2012

You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God.
   You’re blessed when you follow his directions,
      doing your best to find him.
   That’s right—you don’t go off on your own;
      you walk straight along the road he set.
   You, God, prescribed the right way to live;
      now you expect us to live it.
   Oh, that my steps might be steady,
      keeping to the course you set;
   Then I’d never have any regrets
      in comparing my life with your counsel.
   I thank you for speaking straight from your heart;
      I learn the pattern of your righteous ways.
   I’m going to do what you tell me to do;
      don’t ever walk off and leave me.  (Psalm 119: 1-15 Message Version)

 

A few days ago while driving I noticed a tag that read, IAMKEPT.  In the same day at a stop light, I noticed a bumper sticker that read, “I’m driving, but not sure where I’m going.”

 Have you ever felt you’re going through the motions of life (driving) without direction?  Do you know that you’re kept?  Often times we live life confused like the bumper sticker.  They both (tag and sticker) were seen for a reason, it blessed me, because it caused me to think, “What if I wasn’t kept and was lost, oppose to being kept and lost?”  Do you realize when you’re kept; despite your sense of direction…God can give you a revelation to keep you even when you’re uncertain of your destination.  Being kept causes you to trust in God even when you’re not able to trace him!  You do not necessarily have to know everything, but that’s when you trust God and believe in Him, not what’s present.  The speed bumps you thought were rough will cause you to yield to your heavenly Father and His will can protect you, by going through a few detours.  His will isn’t to slow you down, but to keep you safe from all hurt, harm and danger.  That’s why I liked the bumper sticker, to me it says, “God, I’m trying (driving), I’m not sure what you’re doing, but I’ll go wherever you lead me.”  If He puts you to the test, He can certainly do the rest!  Throughout the day, you should take the time to thank Him for keeping you, especially when you consider the negative things throughout the world, oppose to where you could be—you’re kept!  Stay positive!!!!!

 Are you driving, but not sure where you’re going?  When in doubt, just acknowledge His presence and He’ll direct, while keeping you.  (In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.—Proverbs 3:6)

 Remember…. “The Will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you!”  In other words God will not steer you in the wrong direction, wherever he leads, he’ll guide and protect.  Trust and Believe, He’s a man of His word; He’s depending on you to read it!

Wishing you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Remember, in all things….give THANKS…always!!
