Have you ever thought that you could get through just about anything if the Lord would tell you what the outcome would be. Myself, I believe that all things work together for the good in the end (Romans 8:28), but I’d do alot better in dark times if I knew exactly what the “good” would look like.
God ususally doesn’t show us where He is taking us. He simply asks us to trust Him. It’s like driving a car at night. Our headlights never shine all the way to our destination; they illuminate only about 170 feet ahead of us. But that doesn’t deter us from moving forward. We trust our headlights in the same way that we should trust God in our life. We only need a little light to keep moving forward.
God’s word is like headlights in dark times. It is full of promises we need to keep us from driving our lives into the ditch of bitterness and despair. His Word promises that he will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). His word gives us the positive reassurance that He knows the plans that he has for us. Plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). We should also know that our trials are there to make us better and not bitter.
So the next time that you feel that you are driving in the dark, remember to trust your headlights-God’s word will light your way. Remember this is a promise that he made to all who believe in him. You will not stumble in the dark if you walk in the light of God’s word. He will be sure to get you to your destination. However, it is your choice to make, and yours alone. I hope and I pray that you all have a wonderful day today. God bless you all.
Psalm 119:105-Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
