John 14:26 “But the Helper will teach you everything and will cause you to remember all that I told you. This Helper is the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name.”
Driving can be fun. It gets us to our destinations quickly and we can see a lot of this country. As kids grow, they especially look forward to the day they get to be behind the wheel. The biggest struggle with driving is those blind spots. Unable to see clearly all around you, can be unnerving.
Have you ever wished you really did have eyes in the back of your head? This would be great with our kids. But overall, it sure would help us know what or who's coming up behind us or the things happening around us.
For many the unknown makes us feel uneasy, maybe stressed or even feel anxious. It can be hard to keep moving forward not knowing what's ahead of us. Those roads during your travels, a path on a walk, your path in life. Sometimes going forward blindly can be hard.
The Bible tells a story of a man who was asked to go blindly forward into the unknown. God asked him to pack up his family and move to another part of the earth leaving behind his dad, siblings and all he knew. We know this man to be Abraham. Do you think that was easy for him? Even though God asked it of him I believe he was still hesitant. Wouldn’t you be? There is a verse in the Bible that we can find security in when we face the unknown.
Acts 2:25, “I always see the Lord in front of me, for He is that my right hand so that I cannot be shaken.”
The verse doesn't say God is sometimes in front of me. It says I can always see the Lord in front of me. What a great definition of faith, always seeing the Lord in front. No matter the good or bad happening in your life, faith is believing the Lord is leading your life. Living with confidence knowing God is at your right hand and no matter what happens, you won't be shaken.
No blind spots when we believe the Lord is walking with us. Knowing that, we can face the unknown with confidence, for everything will be okay. The best way to go through each day is picturing Jesus leading the way. Maybe as you walk, He turns around looking at you with a reassuring smile. He might even add a wave letting you know all is going to be okay. I like the poem ‘Footprints in the Sand’. To sum it up you are walking in the sand and there are two sets of footprints in the sand. Yours and God's, side by side. Every so often one set disappears. When the person asked God why, He tells them, “It's when I carried you.”
With God by our side we have no blind spots and He is there helping us through each day. If one day you are facing the unknown you can go forward boldly in faith believing God is right with you. Have a blessed day with the Lord by your side.
