The phone rang. As I answered, I heard the voice of one of my mother’s best friends, a faithful intercessor who has prayed for me since I was a little girl. When she calls, everything stops. I pay close attention because, when she reaches out to me, she has a word from the Lord.
She said, “I’ll be brief, Sweetie, because I know that you’ve got five hundred things going on and those boys need you. As I was praying for you, the Lord gave me verse 36 from Psalm 18. He wants to tell you that he will enlarge the path for your feet.”
“You have enlarged my path under me, that my feet did not slip.”
Psalm 18:36 (KJ2000)
My spiritual mama went on to explain the message, encouraging me that God’s love reaches out to draw me forward on the path he has ordained. Picture a mom or dad clearing the path for a baby who is just learning to walk. Every obstacle is removed, and the excited parent crouches a short distance from the baby, arms outstretched, encouraging the youngster with love and encouragement, “You can do it. Come to Mommy.”
