I’m on the train to London today. I have checked where I am right now (near Milton Keynes ) and I know exactly how long it will take me to reach my destination. That’s the sort of person I am. When our family travelled to India on the airplane I was following our progress on the flight tracker. Watching the plane icon travelling over the different countries was comforting to me.
I think it is human nature to want to know where we are at in our journey.
However, in our journey of life we do not know how far along we are. We do not know when we will reach our destination of Heaven. That’s where trust comes in. We are commanded to pray to God for our daily bread and advised to not worry even about tomorrow.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, ” Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding:in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
God knows when we will reach our final destination. God orders our steps, and our stops and we can only entrust our journey of life to Him.
