On our journey home from Colorado, an older and wiser couple drive one hour ahead of us. They warn us of traffic or storms. They select the best hotel option. They research and find great local restaurants.
As we arrive behind them, we receive the reconnaissance report. How easy to travel this way! They even make dinner reservations for us so we just walk right to our table.
It feels like we are not alone. As I thank God for them, I realize they visually represent God’s presence and provision all along.
I recall the verse in Deuteronomy where the author reports that God “went ahead of you on your journey, in fire by night and in a cloud by day, to search out places for you to camp and to show you the way you should go.”
I love that God shows us the way we should go.
Journal: Has it been obvious that God has gone ahead of you to show you the way you should go?
