Sweet Sunday Scripture – He knows the way that I take…

“Behold, I go forward [and to the east],
but He is not there;
I go backward [and to the west],
but I cannot perceive Him;

On the left hand [and to the north] where He works [I seek Him],
but I cannot behold Him;
He turns Himself to the right hand [and to the south],
but I cannot see Him.

But He knows the way that I take
[He has concern for it, appreciates, and pays attention to it].

When He has tried me,
I shall come forth as refined gold [pure and luminous].”

Job 23:8-10 (Amp)

If you have ever wondered where God is in your situation – or if God has lost sight of you – be encouraged and strengthened through the Truth of His Word. You may lose sight of God and what He is doing in and around your current situations – but HE HAS NOT LOST SIGHT OF YOU!

And when He has finished working in and around and through this season of our lives – you – and I – will come forth as refined gold… pure, luminous, beautiful, shiny, and reflective of His glory!

He knows the way that you take! And He loves you sacrifically.

I love ya too! Blessings to you this Sunday…

  1. Thank you for the scripture – and was glad to find the link for Andrew's story. I will surely be in prayer for him and his family. Hope you Sunday is blessed…
