Changing Lanes

There is this one day that you are driving in this one direction. You are completely sure you are headed in the right direction to your destination, despite that little voice inside that tells you "No!" Your eyes are basically closed, blocking out the lines in the road that pass beneath your tires in rhythmic form. They play a song that reminds you of your childhood, laying in the back seat on your way home from a meaningless Bible school.

You wake up. You didn't know you were sleeping. You instinctively turn your car around because despite your evidence, this is not the right direction. This path is easy and the road is clear.

Your path is full of bumps and pot holes that threaten to take off your tires. You know that if the road is clear, you're going the wrong way. The Bible says: For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God (1 Cor. 1:18). 

The road to real life in Christ will be filled with pot holes and flat tires. This has always been the way of God. If it seems like something everything wants to believe, it's probably not God.
