Where are you going?

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also has
become my salvation." Isaiah 12:2

Two year old Max was securely buckled in his seat in Grandpa's
pickup truck. He was waiting for Dad and Grandpa to stop talking
so he could go for a ride. His mother poked her head in the
truck and said, "Where are you going, Max?" "Not know," he replied,
raising his little arms.
"What are you going to do?" she asked. "Not know," came the
answer again. "Well," she asked, "do you want to come back in the
house with me?"
"No!" came the quick reply as he settled himself more firmly,
waiting to begin his adventure.
Sometimes we don't know what lies ahead and there maybe some
uncertainty on how we should proceed. Little Max didn't know where
he was going or what he was going to do, but he trusted his
Grandpa and Dad completely. Max's confidence in Grandpa is the
kind of trust we need to have in our heavenly Father.
If you are in one of those periods of life when you don't know
what lies ahead, or you don't know what to do about some critical
issue, it might help to think about it that way. God wants you to
have the confidence in Him to say, like the prophet Isaiah, "I
will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord JEHOVAH is my


"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee:
because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever: for
the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength." Isaiah 26:3-4
