Not Knowing | Friday | May 3


The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

–Psalm 37:23 NLT

At times, do you feel like you don’t know where you’re heading in life? Life is a journey, and it is important to take one step at a time. You can get overwhelmed and discouraged if you try to figure out everything on your own.

There’s a way to bring peace when “not knowing” seems to be the norm in your life, and it begins with trusting God to guide your steps. Focus on the deeper meaning of life. Realize that God is not limited and that He sees everything past and present. The future is in His hands and His perfect will. This can give you confidence and hope. He wants you to follow Him with faith and trust. Your own ideas are flawed. Don’t think of past mistakes—they are behind you. Remember, God is a good God who loves you.

Each day you are closer to knowing where He is taking you next. This should give you peace even in the “not knowing.” As Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT) says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”

Prayer Focus

  • Praise God that He knows the beginning from the end and you are safe in His hands.
  • “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 NIV).
