He Leads Us On Paths We Did Not Know
Christians are bed partners with faith. Their path is as unseen and unknown as glory is assured. And, the difficulty of the path does not deter their determination.
He leads us on by paths we did not know.
Upward He leads us, tho' our steps be slow;
Tho' oft we faint and falter on the way,
Tho' storms and darkness oft obscure the day,
Yet, when the clouds are gone,
We know He leads us on. (H.O.Wiley, 1831-1873)
'He is the source of our mercies, His mercy shall never fail us. No heat nor drought can dry the River of Life.' (Nicolaus Ludwig Zinzendorf)
And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them. (Isaiah 42:16)
