Tearing Down the Stronghold of Hate

 

“He will make your paths straight…

 

Proverbs 3:6

 

Beloved of God:

 

          When I was growing up and life hit a rough patch with someone within my group of friends, we would check in with one another by asking, “Man are you straight?”  If we were okay, though things were not okay, we would answer, “Man I’m straight.”  This is the promise of Proverbs 3:5-6 —“5Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (NIV).”

Life’s paths are not going to always be straight, or easy, or unencumbered.  But, in the midst of life where things are not always straight, God says to us, “I’ll keep you straight.”  When we understand God’s promise, we can answer life’s difficult paths with the confidence of “I’m straight.” 

“Things may not be what I want them to be right now, but I’m straight.  Things may not be going the way I want them to go, but I know I’m straight.  This may not have been the path that I would have chosen, But, as long as I know God is doing the leading…

“I’m straight.”

In Him,
