~Psalm 139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
God knows everything – he is omniscient (that means all knowing). He knows what you are experiencing and what you will encounter along your daily journey, teen girl. He knows because His Spirit resides within you and He is always there, ready to guide.
As I look at this beautiful photograph of the Siuslaw River near Florence, OR (taken by a dear friend, Pam Banegas), I see many types of paths. It reminds me of the different paths I encounter along the way. Some can be a smooth grassy path, comparable to an easy day with no great trial or tribulation. Another can be hilly, through dense forest, comparable to sickness, problems at home or school, etc. Yet another can be beside a calm lake, comparable to thirsting after God’s Word and gleaning from its pages.
Either way you look at the different paths, teen girl, the Lord surrounds them all, according to Psalm 139:3. Our Father knows all your ways and none come to him by surprise. What great comfort this should bring you! :)
