“Trust in the Lord with all you heart, and do not lean on your understanding. In all ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths” – Proverbs 3:5 (NIV)
Anyone who has driven through a fog or storm must have experienced a moment of panic when the way ahead is quite unclear and there is a fear of running into some danger. Perhaps running into another car which has also lost sight of the way.
Well, even in the Christian life there comes those moments when the road ahead can be filled with a blinding fog and the passage through is quite unclear. It could be a crushing thunderstorms that leaves you all on the edge and in suspense.
The thing with being caught in a fog or thunderstorm is that very often it does not make sense to pull back. Perhaps stop- which might also not make sense since one is not sure of the place there are. Everywhere is but a fog or a flood sweeping across.
In those situations what really one needs is but faith. The faith that there is the Almighty God watching over His dear children. And gently God leads one through.
When the way is filled with a fog or one is caught in a thunderstorm and you can’t stop or pull back, have faith that God will see you! As the Scripture says, “For with God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:37, KJV).
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth that in the midst of the fog and thunderstorms of life I hold on to my complete faith in you that you will see me through as always!
