Are you standing at a fork in the road?
Let’s say you’ve been winding your way through your days when suddenly…you come up on a fork in the road. Which way do you go? Do you know? Well, Tony…it depends on what road we’re talking about. Doesn’t it? Yes, it does. But is there a good and trustworthy way to know which direction to choose no matter what road it is? I say there is. Wanna know how? Keep reading…
Your life is unique. No one else who ever lived, is living now, or will ever live will have the same life as you. But your life is no different from anybody else either. Confused? Let me explain.
The DNA found in every cell of your body is incredibly complex and singularly yours. The chances of it existing by chance are so small, you’d be more likely to win the powerball AND get struck by lightning on 3 birthdays in a row. No, it ain’t the case. Your living, loving Creator made only one of you. And He put a code inside you that makes sure no one else will be you. Now, I said all that because I want you to realize how special you are. Here’s the other side of the coin…
…you’re not special, unique, or one-of-a-kind when it comes to how your life plays out. What I mean is…you’ll experience awesome days and disappointing days. You’ll have to go through pain. And you’ll enjoy great pleasures. You will. And so will about seven billion other people. So did countless other people throughout history. It’s life. In life, you will come to a fork in the road more than once. In some ways almost daily. In other ways, maybe only a few times. By fork in the road I mean, a place where you’ll have to choose a direction, an option, a judgment call.
So…how do you make wise choices when faced with a fork? It depends on who you’re willing to trust to help you. Do you think your best friends have the solution? How about mom? Or dad? Those can be good choices. But what if they’re not available when you’re faced with a situation that needs a “right away” answer? Who can you turn to then?
May I suggest that same living, loving Creator I mentioned before? Remember, He designed you. He formed you in your mother’s womb. He installed that unique code inside you. He knows what makes you tick. And He’s available 24 hours a day…every day of your life. And He’s as close as your breath. In fact, He’s closer. He’s the Spirit of Life…yours, mine…everybody’s. Without Him nobody would exist. But how do you get to know Him and discover what His advice might be for that fork in your road? His word.
Your Creator’s word says you can plan your way. And it says He will direct your steps. That means He won’t make your decisions for you. And He didn’t plan your life for you. But when you trust Him, He won’t lead you the wrong way. He’ll lead you the direct way. That means you’ll get where you need to be.
Here’s a challenge for you. Give up trusting in yourself today. Start reading God’s word…more…especially the writings from Paul in the New Testament. Which do you think is more dependable…your truth? Or actual Truth?
