SIH TOTT ICON(“Our Future Events May Be Hard To Maneuver But The Lord Will Straighten Them Out”)


Folks, as the New Year comes upon us, we are reminded that we are embarking on a new part of our life’s journey that is filled with many unknowns. These unknown events can challenge a Christian’s faith to its very core. This is the reason that I felt it was important to take a few devotional lessons and address keys to “Entering The Unknown By Faith”.

In this six part devotional series, we will be looking at Isaiah 42:16. This is a wonderful text to use in this devotional series. In this series, we will learn about how to handle unforeseen, challenging life events based upon our trust in the Lord and His enabling graces.

Lord willing, by His grace alone, we will be uncovering the wisdom found in God’s Word that will help us to handle all the “unknowns” that this New Year will hold for us.

Our devotionals will be looking at:

1. Dec 26th – Our Uncertain Future…. Faith Is The Key!
2. Dec 27th – Our Blindness To The Events Our Future Holds
3. Dec 28th – Our Future Holds Events We Have Never Experienced
4. Dec 29th – Our Future Is Revealed To Us One Event At A Time… In The Lord’s Time
5. Dec 30th – Our Future Events May Be Hard To Maneuver But The Lord Straightens Them Out
6. Dec 31st – Our Lord Will Care For Us Every Passing Day

May the Lord bless our study!


Isa 42:16 KJV


Our Future Events May Be Hard To Maneuver But The Lord Will Straighten Them Out

Isa 42:16d KJV – “I will make … crooked things straight.”

The New Year will hold situations that make the course of our lives very difficult to negotiate. At times, our paths will be so twisted, we will not be able to see where it is taking us; at other times, it will be so confusing, we will not know what our next step should be.

These types of situations require faith in our Lord, His sovereignty in allowing this situation upon us, His ability to grace us with His leadership, His enablement allowing us to be profitable in His service, and His intervention to remove any roadblocks that stand in our way …

Isa 48:17 KJV – “Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.”

Isa 45:2 KJV – “I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:”


For the Christian, it is these twisted times of life that cause us to recognize our vast inabilities and our need of Christ every step of the way…

1Jn 4:4 KJV – “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

As we begin this New Year, let us enter it with a Godly attitude of humility and appreciation for His enabling graces during the crooked times of our lives.
