If God drives a vehicle, it's surely a Hummer. And that really ticks me off sometimes.
Two mornings a week, I drive into Atlanta for work, braving the morning rush hour commute. I love when I get behind a small car so I can see beyond it to get a view of the traffic up ahead. Getting stuck behind an 18-wheeler? Total nightmare. Driving behind a Prius? It's like commuter gold!
You know what I feel like right now? I'm following God, but He's in a big fat Hummer. I cannot see any further down the road than His massive presence. And I'm a little bit afraid it's going to drive me insane.
Because I want to know. I want to know what's next. I want to see what's ahead. But I can't see past HIM. Big, massive, omniscient, omnipresent, GOD Almighty. I'm sorry if it's irreverent, but following without being able to see the scope of what's ahead just plain sucks sometimes.
But I hear Him. He just asks me to follow. Follow when I can't see around Him. Follow because He's worthy of my trust. Follow when life is crazy hard and I want to see that it won't always be this way. Follow because He is ONLY good.
Father, there's no way apart from You. No good thing apart from You. But the path, while certain in victory and hope, is unknown to us and that requires more than we have in us to follow. We need You to give us strength to be able to walk in Your ways even when we have no idea what's up ahead.
