Even in these days of shaking, God has given His people great promises to ensure their safety and increase their courage. Give close attention to the last phrase of Psalm 18:36: “You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip.” This promise is to those who are walking in God’s light, those who are covered by God’s powerful shield of protection. God promises to give us a firm foundation in shaky times, and He also promises make our feet like those of a mountain deer, able to not only stand on this firm foundation, but scale the highest heights of the Spirit—above the chaos of this world. Christ warns us that if we build our lives on shifting sands, instead of the solid rock of God’s Word, we can expect devastation (see Matt.7:24-29).
The Spirit of God has set before us guidelines for releasing Divine Wisdom to us in order to help us navigate safely during these dark, dangerous days. What is the pathway to true Divine Wisdom? It’s not a process or a pattern or a methodology—but a Person, Christ Jesus (see John 8:12).
The light and wisdom we seek are not to be found in human programs or our own psyche and good intentions, but rather in the person of Christ Jesus. Consider Psalm 36:9: “For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light” (AMP).
Meditate on Psalm 18:28-31:For You cause my lamp to be lighted and to shine; the Lord my God illumines my darkness. For by You I can run through a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect! The word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in Him. For who is God except the Lord? Or who is the Rock save our God (AMP).
The first step out of darkness and despair is simply asking for God’s grace and guidance. Sincerely seek His direction and His will above your own. We must desire to walk in God’s light (see 1 John 1:5).
Asking is key; we have not because we ask not. If we ask, we shall receive. As we seek, we shall find; it is as sure as the sun rising in the morning (see Luke 11:9). God is faithful to His Word. He is generous beyond what anyone can imagine, and our generous, loving, and kindhearted Father longs to release superb wisdom to each of His children.
You are not the exception! Believe what the Scripture says in James 1:5: If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him (AMP).
Walk in God’s light, become a radiant reflection of God’s Glory during these days.
