How about this photo? When I took this, the first thing I thought of was this picture with the words “Not sure if you are going in the right direction?” or “Can’t See Where You Are Going?” on the photo in the fog. Of course, the rest of the text would suggest clearing your mind through a relationship with Jesus.
I know some people whom the photo reminds me of. They seem to be locked onto a track as they go the same way and always do the same things, make the same mistakes and so forth. But when you ask them where they are headed they will say “I don’t know” or they might ask what I am talking about.
Sometimes just the things of everyday life can overwhelm us and cause us to give up. The scriptures talk about this when they describe us as being blinded by Satan. We are sometimes so busy going somewhere, getting something, doing something, seeing something, (you get the idea) that we don’t look up to see where we are going. And if we did look up, we sometimes look into a fog like in the photo. Life has us moving but we don’t know where we are headed. And after enough pain, rejection, depression, problems and just life, we don’t always care where we are headed, just so we don’t stay where we are. That is when it gets really bad cause we don’t care about ourselves.
The fix for all this is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. When you ask Jesus to become a part of your life, then you will begin to see your life in a new light. The light of Jesus. If you are having problems and don’t know for sure where you are headed, consider what the Lord Jesus can do for you. Look in the Bible in the book of Psalms, chapter 107. Verses 4-7 talks about the redeemed of the Lord whom He has delivered from the enemy. They had wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way, they found no city to live in, had nowhere to go. They were hungry and thirsty and their soul fainted in them. To me this means that they longed so much for help, but did not know where to go or how to get it. In desperation they cried out to the Lord in their trouble and HE DELIVERED THEM. Now notice the response of God when we get in trouble IF we will cry out to HIM!.
Verse 9: He satisfies the thirsty soul and fills the hungry soul with what is good. Verse 13-14: He saved them out of distress, brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, Verse 20: He sent His word and healed them and delivered them from destruction, Verse 29: He caused the storm to be still. (Sounds pretty good so far, doesn’t it) Then verse 35 through 43 gives you a look into what God can do and will do. He turns a wilderness into pools of water, and dryland into watersprings. They can sow fields, plant vineyards, and yield a fruitful harvest. He blesses them and they multiply greatly and He will not let their cattle decrease. He also promises that when we are brought low through oppression and other things, He will set it right and eventually fix all things for us. All we have to do is come to Him through His Son Jesus. Check it out. Read Psalms chapter 107 to see what God can do for YOU!
Whoever is wise will observe these things and they will understand the loving kindness of the Lord. Psalms 107:43
