🚙 My dad is a little bit obsessed with his car GPS navigation system and relies on it way too often. His selling point is that the device can outsmart traffic jams with time-saving alternate routes. Well, my mom begs to differ after their 8-hour disastrous drive to Seattle last month, when they could have been there within 3 hours!
😒 Their frustrations and time spent circling around reminded me of how often we try to outsmart God and doubt his plans for us.
We run ahead due to lack of patience.
We rely on our own assumptions due to an absence of trust in him.
Though his way may not be the fastest, we are to remember all who wait patiently for him are happy (Isaiah 30:18). His instruction is the true compass of peace. His timing is perfect.
