Follow the leader – or in this case – follow the lead car. That’s what we were doing Wednesday as several of us piled into cars and headed out for the church outing at Cartwright’s Maple Tree Inn for a pancake breakfast. I was sitting in the back seat watching as the road became increasingly winding. Our driver, knowing it was only going to be more winding ahead turned onto a different route to avoid some of the curves. Either route would have gotten us to our destination.
God knows our destination and He knows the best way to get us there. He also gives us choices. But He has given us the Holy Spirit to help us make those right choices. Sometimes He allows us to go down those roads that are filled with twists and turns and other times the road may be free of those things. Whichever way, if you are trusting God to lead you, it will always be the right path.
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the LORD upholds him with His hand.” Psalm 37:23, 24
Even if it is the hard way, know that God will ride with you all the way!
