It was very dark and somewhat difficult to see.
As I was driving on a multi-lane highway, I turned left at the signal to enter a two lane highway that intersected it.
Although the pavement over the four lanes I had to cross was marked with paint to guide vehicles to the correct point on the other side, I somehow failed to follow it correctly.
When I entered the two lane road, I did so on the wrong side of the double yellow lines into a turn lane for oncoming traffic.
I had made a serious error.
Immediately aware of the double yellow lines and my placement to the left of them, I called out loud, “God! I’m in the the wrong place!” as I looked in my rear view mirror to see some headlights behind me.
Instantly increasing my speed and moving to the correct lane without a collision from the rear or the front, my heart was beating quickly.
I was thankful for God’s protection in the midst of the danger.
In essence, we all must come to a point where we call out to God for help, realizing that we are in the wrong place—a place of sin and separation from Him.
Proverbs 14:12 reads, “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.“
When I turned my car into the wrong lane, it appeared to be right at first–but it wasn’t.
When we call to God, He hears us.
When we ask for forgiveness, He grants it.
When we give our lives to Him, He saves us.
