The LORD is so faithful and true. He promised to be our rock, our protector, our defender, our comforter, our guide, our strength, and even to be our song. Why would we look to anyone or anything else? What in creation can do all these for us, while loving us eternally? There is nothing and no one. But why do we turn from our heavenly father who loves us with an everlasting and steadfast love? Why do we seek after our own ways as if they are good, when no man is good? Why do we seek after our own worldly wisdom when God calls it foolish?
Because we are like blind sheep. We need a shepherd to guide and direct us. One who would lay down his life for us. One who will constantly look after us. One who would protect us. That is the LORD. All that we have which is good, has come from Him. He has a plan and a purpose for our lives. After accepting Him as the Son of God who lived, died, and rose from the dead we must, "Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3"
When we resist the temptations to do things our way which is the path that leads to death, and choose to follow Him then we find the hidden path. The straight hidden past from of old, which leads to eternal life. But along the way, you'll enjoy the fruits of it which are love, peace, joy, mercy, forgiveness, meekness, patience, grace, and comfort.
