Trusting the Driver

"Are we going the right way?" I asked with hesitant nervousness.

The driver nodded his head patiently and kept his eyes on the road ahead.

"Ummm...are we going a bit too fast? What is the speed limit here?" I queried again, just a minute later.

"I believe we are traveling at a safe speed," he replied. "Just relax and enjoy the ride."

"Relax and enjoy the ride." That was the message God spoke to my heart several weeks ago.

Earlier this year when I began seriously praying about a return to Uganda, I pointedly told God that if He did not want me to go, to clearly close the door, but if He did want me to return, to continue to open the doors. Now, several months later, even though it seemed He was only opening doors, I was doubting - Was I really making the right decision? Had I moved forward rashly?

Then God reminded me of my prayer - to either close or open the door. I had handed Him the keys and now He just wanted me to sit back and enjoy the ride.

He lovingly admonished that I had committed the decision to His care and He was more than capable to keep me on the path He had laid out for me.

We serve a very powerful, all-knowing and sovereign God and we can rest in that.

Perhaps you have committed something to the Lord, but it is again burdening your heart. Trust Him and leave it in His hands. Or maybe there is something you need to give Him. Again, entrust it to Him - He is more than capable and will only ever act in your best interest.

Before I close, here are a couple of quotes on faith.

"Faith is not a sense, nor sight, nor reason, but simply taking God at His word." - Christmas Evans
"The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety." - George Muller
