Do you ever wonder why a certain speed limit has been posted on a road you are traveling? Sometimes it can be frustrating if you are in a hurry to arrive at your destination and the speed limit sign is encouraging you to slow down. What if it seems like an empty road? Straight, no curves. Nothing to warrant moving traffic at such a reduced pace. What do you do?
Making the choice to obey the law, you resign yourself to poking along for no good reason. Suddenly, quite a distance away, you see a car up ahead, pulling out into the road. Seconds later, as you pass the area, you read another sign: hidden driveway. Hmmm. That was why….
I sometimes want to go a little faster in my life than God wants me to. I want things now. Or maybe, tomorrow. But next year? Ten years? Do I really have to go that slowly? Only God knows about the "hidden driveways" in the path that He has set before me. I must follow His directions if I am to be where He wants me, when He wants me there. He sees what I cannot. I must trust in Him.
