Unfamiliar Places

“It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going” Hebrews 11:8, NLT.

This season of your life may be new to you, but it’s not new to God. Receive His grace to operate in this new season and to keep moving forward. God will help you move into the unknown and into what is unfamiliar. I’ve had times in my life when I’ve told God, “I’ve never been here before. Never experienced this before.” It was both great and terrible experiences I’ve had that was new to me. There’s nothing like being in a place you’ve never been, and you’re having to depend solely on God and trust Him like never before. And that’s where we are, my sister.

This is when we hear God say, “I’ve got you!”

“I’ve got you.”

“I’ve got you.”

This season may be new to you, but it’s not new to Him. He’s not experiencing it for the first time. He’s all-knowing and has already made a way and carved out a path for you. Rest in knowing He knows everything. He knows what He’s doing. You have nothing to fear because He is with you. He will guide you and flood you with His grace. He will strengthen you to keep moving forward into the unknown until you reach His promise.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you that even though this season of my life is new to me, it’s not new to you. You know every day of my life, and you’ve ordered my steps right. Thank you, Lord, that you are with me when I’m in a place that’s unfamiliar. You are with me to help me and guide me. Thank you for holding my hand and leading me by your Holy Spirit as I walk on this journey. Thank you, Lord, for comforting me. You are beautiful, and I love you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Psalm 23:4; Isaiah 58:11)

  1. Thank You Lord. Please order my steps according to Your word. Be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Guide me and keep me in You. Please hold my hand. For Your Glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Blessings, Shalom and Agape.

    1. It was in 2018 that I fianally surrendered to many things that were controlling my life. As I surrendered I recall vividly a lamp that was drawn on the door in the room that I risided in and I wrote under the lamp the exact words that are shared in this reply; God is a lamp at my feet…Since that time I have struggled to find my purpose. Today as I wake and read this devotional and the reply that is attached to it I am having a
      “God Wink” moment, cause today I embark on a new journey that I was unsure and afraid to walk through. Yet this is a reassuring moment that God is saying to me this is exactly where your supposed to be this is exactly exactly what your supposed to be feeling, fear not for I am with you, I GOT YOU!! So God Bless You for sharing your thoughts this morning they have helped me tremendously..❤️ Love Heidi H.

  3. Only God could have known how much I needed this devotional today. I am indeed in unfamiliar territory a new location, no job, uncertain of what God‘s assignment for me is today. However, I am confident that is not new to him and he has carved out my path and will take me by the hair and leave me through. Thank you for this devotional I wept as I read.

  8. This day 3 mo have I been married to the man I prayed for who I have been fighting this whole time to prove him wrong
    Yet every where I look and the past 3 years he has been leading me to the True and living God I have been kicking and screaming saying no this way yet God has been showing me Him theses past 3 days who He is in my life and now today your word is confirmation
    Take Gods right hand and my husbands left hand and walk with them to the promise land
    I had a vision a few months ago about me being in the deep deep water as Jesus is reaching His hand to me I was the one refusing to grab His hand
    God is so so Good as He knows exactly what I need when I need it
    I am falling in love with Jesus

  9. I was listening and God was speaking this morning
    What He has done these past 3 years in secret will be spoken out loud when and where He says to go if He thinks I am ready He will guide every step and every word out of my
    mouth
    Thank you
    Just as He did fir David

  10. Thank you Sooo Much for this Word today!!! It hits right on Everyday. I always know its just for me and today with my situation there No denying. Thank You God for loving me, guiding me and speaking to me through Daughters of the King Everyday!! I have been thinking I have come so far and I know that God is Not going to leave me here in this situation not knowing the next move or where I go from here. My relationship with the Lord gets stronger and I get closer to him everyday. Thank you Lord for your confirmation!! You are my Salvation, my Waymaker, Paintaker, Protector, Provider, and my Keeper. Hallelujah 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙏🏼♥️

  11. Surely this word is speaking to me! I have entered into a new season of my life and the persecution is real. However, I have a refuge , a great help in the time of trouble- GOD . Satan always comes to challenge what GOD has ordained and spoken over a Christian’s life. He would like to stop it, but he can’t because the victory has already been won! Like Abraham, obedience is key in kicking the devil’s but. I declare I shall trust and obey as I step out into my new territory. GOD ordained it for me and He knows the end from the beginning. GOD GOT ME!! GOD GOT ME! Hallelujah 💯🙌✝💪

  12. Amen! Thank you Father God, lead and guide me. Thank you that you already made the way! I needed this on today! Confirmation for me and I receive it! 🙌🏽

  13. Though I am in an unfamiliar place now, I am asking and trusting ADONAI to make a way and bless even in this place. Hallelujah!!!
    Amen
