I delight to make bright, to give a path to walk that is in My blessing. To bring light to those who have cried out in darkness, “Save us, Oh God.” I delight to make a path overcome with My permeating fragrances, clear of weeds and brambles. So that My beloveds may run on the path before them without blocks, hindrances, or pitfalls.
Yes, I say I remove the pitfalls. It has even been as tar to the feet of those who have traversed it. “Why are we unable to move forward. We try with all our might?” I tell you , I clear the way and make your paths straight. You will now say, “How delightful a path we walk on, what before was heavy and dark is now bright and clear. What a delightful path we traverse, Praise our God for making our way.”
Freedom I declare for the captives. That they would walk above the common ways of man and move into My higher ways. They have longed for Me to touch them and show them new things. I answer this call. They have reasoned, “There has to be a different way, His word must be true.”
I tell you I touch them, not man, and show them great things in My word, all I desire to do I pour out on them and strengthen them to touch others. To say, “Look what the lord has done for even one as me. I did not know to hope for such things, really hope, but the Lord has done this mighty thing in us both. How mighty is He, come and know Him.”
- “You make your saving help my shield; your help has made me great.You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.“I pursued my enemies and crushed them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.” II Samuel 22:36-38
- “I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word.I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds.My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me and teach me your law.I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws.I hold fast to your statutes, Lord; do not let me be put to shame.I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding. Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart.Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.How I long for your precepts! In your righteousness preserve my life. May your unfailing love come to me, Lord, your salvation, according to your promise;then I can answer anyone who taunts me, for I trust in your word.” Psalm 119:25-43
