A year ago, a verse in the Bible was a source of tremendous encouragement for us as we embarked on the new adventure of heading to west to Washington.

“He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because he delighted in me.” (Psalm 18:19)

I have been drawn once again to those words, especially to the word “spacious.” What is a spacious place?

For David, it might have meant being out in the open and vulnerable as a warrior, yet protected in the expanses of God’s sovereignty.

Not closed in but free. Not cornered but delivered. Not confined but unshackled. Not constricted but unleashed. Not restricted but released. Not overwhelmed but unburdened. Not crowded but space to grow. Not limited but boundless in opportunity. Not closed in darkness but truly alive in light.

A spacious life is marked by staying out of ruts while staying on the path.

“Spacious” is a picture of expanses, unknowns, new horizons, mysterious things yet to be discovered. The place of faith.

What is the spacious life God is leading you toward because He delights in you?
