A Prayer for When the Path is Unknown By Kyle Norman
“The whole Israelite company set out from the Desert of sin, traveling from place to place as the Lord commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink.” - Exodus 17:1-2
I want my life to make sense and be ordered and arranged, with my day running according to my own plans. If there is to be a twist, hurdle, or anything unforeseen, I would like to see it coming a mile away to have adequate time to prepare myself. After all, complications are less frustrating or upsetting when we can manage them away. Am I alone in this? You may have noticed life doesn’t work this way. And more to the point, God rarely works this way. Throughout Scripture the people of God often find themselves engaging in the unexpected and the unplanned. God’s presence cannot be managed or controlled, and because of this, we sometimes find ourselves facing that which we would never have conceived.
