When I shared with my daughter the story I posted yesterday, she related the following to me.
I immediately thought of all the times I’ve been lost on this journey of life. It seemed like I took the correct exit, but I didn’t end up where I planned. Or I merged on the wrong freeway and was headed the wrong direction. I would call my Father.
But my Father never had to ask me where I was. He already knew.
Psalms 139 says He has known me from conception. He knows when I leave and when I get back. I am never out of His sight. He knows the same thing about you.
Wrap your mind around that!
I grew up with a God that was terrifying … therefore that scripture did not give me comfort. I was told He was just watching to make sure I made NO mistakes … and certainly never sinned. As I grew older, I discovered the God of the Bible … one full of love and caring.
What kind of God do you have?
As you take your exits or merge on the life roads that resemble spaghetti, He is right there. And He loves you. Call and tell Him you are lost. He’ll guide you to the right freeway.
“You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of your sight.” Psalms 139:3 (MSG)
