Job 7; 17-19 ''What is mankind that you make so much of them, that you give them so much attention, that you examine them every morning and test them every moment? Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant?''
We feel lost and alone when we depend on ourselves for answers, direction and comfort. Who hasn't said, 'Just leave me alone' at some point. The walls we build up can often block out the very help we need at the moment.
You are never alone, never forsaken, and never forgotten... God always knows where you are and how you are. No, He won't look away from you even for an instant. Job didn't understand that despite all of his strife that God was looking after him at all times.
'And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.' Sometimes it's hard to see the good in the journey when we aren't sure of the plan He has in mind. Heaven tho is not just about the destination but the journey and the relationship built with Him during it.
When I was 13, my parents took me on a drive but wouldn't tell me where we were going. Yes, I've always wanted to know what Point A and Point B are on a trip and the route we are taking. I had to just trust them in that they knew what they were doing and the best way to get there. They didn't need my help but just to follow along in the ride. It turned out better than I expected....Magic Springs. Isn't that how we should trust and obey in God's leading of our lives? I bet the destination is better than we expect too.
