Wisdom – Mon – 22-09-19

When I drive somewhere, I usually like to take an interstate highway. They are designed for high speed and safety. And they usually are safe and fast unless clogged with traffic or construction. Other roads can be used, but are usually slower. Some roads are even fun to travel, if you’re taking a leisurely drive on a sunny day. These are the twisty, windy roads that roll up and down hills. Tennessee has a lot of these roads, as do other states. But they’re not fun if you need to get somewhere in a hurry or you want to drive with the least amount of stress.

Don’t you wish your life sailed smoothly along like driving an empty interstate highway? Safe, fast, scenic, without potholes, construction and problems? Proverbs 3:5-6 talks about living on a straight path, the ancient equivalent to the interstate. It was a path leveled and straightened to make travel easy. How do you live a life like that? How can you make life easy? The passage says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” (NIV)

Sounds good, but you have to leave the driver’s seat. A full-hearted trust in God and his wisdom is required. If you act like God doesn’t exist, don’t expect life to be easy.
