“Then I called on the name of Yahweh: “Yahweh, save me! ” The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is compassionate. The Lord guards the inexperienced; I was helpless, and He saved me. Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. For You, Lord, rescued me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.”
Psalms 116:4-8 HCSB
Bridges are amazing. The Golden Gate Bridge is quite incredible, especially rising through a few cloudsI. I see the mighty hand of God in these magnificent feats of engineering because of the intelligence He gave to humans to design and build them. But unlike the song, God is NOT a “bridge over troubled waters.”
How often have you made mistakes, sometimes huge, due to inexperience or naïveté? It feels as though the whole world has shifted and you might drown. Big or small, your Heavenly Father is a cry away. You can reach to Him for calming comfort and compassionate reason to direct your steps as He walks with you in the Spirit through, not over, the consequences. He is the steadying soul-anchor who clears the distractions and makes straight your path. He may even part the waters, as He did for the Israelites, and shout, “Run!” No matter which way, lean into Him.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 HCSB🚦
