Message: “…the strong survived and paved the way.” On the Oregon Trail the safe thing to do was to stay in those wagon ruts, to stay the course. The hardest thing to do was to get out of those ruts and venture into new territory. A plaque on the trailhead read: “Cowards never started, the weak died along the way, and the strong survived and paved the way.” There is good in staying the course, however, there is also a time to venture into new territory. What are you being called to do? Take some time to reflect on whether you are being called to stay the course or to pursue something new. If God is calling you to venture into a new path, then He is trusting you to do that and you need to trust in Him to equip you with all that you’ll need to fulfill His purpose for you. (see Hebrews 13: 20-21)
