I will lead the blind down a new path,
guiding them along an unfamiliar way.
I will brighten the darkness before them
and smooth out the road ahead of them.
Yes, I will indeed do these things;
I will not forsake them.
There have been many times in my life when I have felt like I was standing in a pitch-black room. I didn’t know if there was a light switch to flip on or a window or door to open; all I knew was that at that particular moment I was in a dark, unfamiliar place.
Have you ever felt like that? Maybe things are happening around you that are causing you to feel confused about your next step in life. If that’s where you find yourself today, know that this verse from Isaiah is for you.
No matter how confused you are or how dark the future might look, God knows where you are and what you are going through. He promises to “brighten the darkness” before you “and to smooth out the road ahead” of you. And on top of those great promises, He promises to never forsake or forget you!
