When reaching a destination, you first have to decide the path to get there. Unknowingly though, alot of us fail to realize that the destination is already decided. We’d be lucky if we could even control the steps we take.
It’s crazy to think that all of our circumstances up until this point was eventually going to guide us to the cross. Such a narrow path, full of uncertainty. When I try to picture my path that lead me to Christ, all I see is the wilderness surrounded by darkness. And on this path is a narrow and tretrious terrain. My faith and God’s word lighting up the trail enough so that my feet never departs from it. Never knowing what lies ahead or what to expect after every twist or turn. But with God’s direction, He gives me the courage to push forward.
You see, when Jesus walked his path to the cross, his destination was set before Him. He was beaten, tormented and beared the weight off all our sin on his shoulders. Yet, the hardship never took Him off. He knew the outcome and purpose was far greater than pain it took to endure. Sometimes we tend to focus on the number of steps it’s going to take to reach our destination, rather than setting our mind on doing whatever it takes to get there. Will we ever know what to expect on our path? Certainly not. Will it be a destination easy reach? No it won’t. But God will definitely lead the way, if asked.
“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
