Julianne needed to be in several unfamiliar places today so I borrowed Michael’s GPS. Using a GPS requires a lot of trust especially when I’m going somewhere I’ve never been before. I am trusting this machine to bring me to my destination. I like using it except for one thing; I can’t see where I’m going. When I use a map or Google directions, I can see my travel route from beginning to end. I know I can keep hitting the forward button on the GPS to see ahead but it’s not the same thing as seeing the whole picture. I have to put my trust into that little machine and believe it will get me where I need to be!!
I was thinking the Christian life is a lot like using a GPS. God is in charge and He is bringing me along to my destination–my final destination! I need to trust Him because I can’t see where I’m going. I can’t see the big picture. Thankfully, the Lord is trustworthy and His guidance is always correct.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your way acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
