Tonight’s passage is short:

Who is wise enough to understand these things?  Who is intelligent enough to know them?

Straight are the paths of the LORD, the just walk in them, but sinners stumble in them.

Hosea 14:10

Simple enough, right?  The notes call it a challenge.  Indeed!   You know the saying, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. God’s path is straight.   Unfortunately, we continuously veer off the path, stumbling along the way.  It would be so much easier if we would just stay the course and stay on the path God reveals to us.

But we are sinners and we stumble.

Lord, I want to walk in your path.  Help me to stay the course.  I know I will stumble along the way, please keep calling me back, lifting me up and showing me once more the way.  Only with your grace, can I make it to you.
