“Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant.” Psalm 25: 8-10
I can still recall walking, many years ago, to the home of a student who lived in an undeveloped area in Mexico City’s outskirts. The entire area was made of up-and-down hills where farmers used to take their cattle through the many vacant lots. I was getting pretty desperate trying to find signs of the streets names not realizing that the road went downhill. My feet slipped and I landed in the cows’ restroom. That was the end of my day with a long and embarrassing return home.
In our daily walk, we find all sorts of roads and highways. Even with the most sophisticated GPSs, there is a good chance of error and unexpected detours. We certainly may experience significant delays or end being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some even have gone the wrong way finding not only the end of a day but the end of their lives.
The Lord has created the most perfect network of ways for all of those who trust Him. Even if someone is lost, God provides an amazing step-by-step set of instructions to get out of there.
Do we believe Him? Or, are we still getting desperate trying to find our own way?
