So we’re in this together you and I; fellow sojourners in a temporary land, making our way through one crazy, mixed up world to ultimately reach our final destination. Oh yeah, Heaven is so very real and so very close to our hearts but sometimes it seems so distant and so far removed from where we are today ~ right now, this moment when the way is long and daunting! There’s still so much journey ahead, and we wonder through our wanderings of wilderness where its taking us? It’s a different way for us all, and we find ourselves so often in the difficult places on difficult days. The roads are many: long, short, steep, winding and dangerous with each one presenting its own level of challenge. Sometimes the light is dim the way is dark. Sometimes the eyesight wanes, health fails and strength is zapped. Decisions are overwhelming, and choices are hard, but we’re in this together aren’t we? Your way and my way? Our ways our dotted with enemies who lie in wait to ambush ~ taking us down, defeating our cause and distracting us from our heavenly goal. We want to run rather than face! We want to cry because it hurts! We want to just give in because it’s too hard to go on.
But oh we do have the good days too! Those days when we just know that we walk the way with Jesus as our steady guide, and our sovereign Lord who leads the way and just as God faithfully led the Israelites through their wanderings He leads us through ours. He’s given us the best director for the drama and the best tour guide for the journey, all packaged together beautifully in the Saviour of the world. The only one who can meet our biggest need and save us from the perils of sin and it’s ruin. Oh I trust you walk with Him today on your journey. Walk with Him as David and so many other great men and women of the faith did. So when it’s rough, and smack dab in the middle of difficult, reach out to Jesus and say with David as he prayed in
Psalm 86: 1, “Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer; answer me for I need your help. Protect me, for I am devoted to You. Save me for I serve You and trust You. You are my God.”
