If you haven't been somewhere before you might want to get directions. We may have even thought that this somewhere is so far away that "there is no way to get there from here". After every effort has failed, we try "MapQuest" or "GPS" but they just lead us in circles and keep "rerouting". The only way to get there is ask SOMEONE WHO has been there before, and still resides there. You realize you can't get there on your own and that you need your "NEW FRIEND'S" constant guidance so you don't get lost again. Your "NEW FRIEND" won't take any money for HIS help, it is HIS free gift to you, HE just wants to go along for the ride. HE laughs with you as you discover "new places" along the way. You begin to TRUST HIM in everything, you actually know your journey is directed by your faith in HIM (Ephesians 2:8-10). You remember the many roads you took before you knew your "NEW FRIEND" and see how foolish you were. You begin to tell "HIM" how sorry you are and you never want to go on those roads again (Acts 17:30-31). HE assures you that if you take a wrong turn HE will be there to help you get back on the right road. Soon you are so "absorbed" in the love of your "NEW FRIEND" you want, and will, tell everyone about HIM (Matthew 10:32-33 and Romans 10:9-10). Now, you two have become great friends and you want to emulate HIM (Romans 6:1-7 and Acts 8:26-39). We begin to learn, that we need HIM to get where we've never been before (John 3:16). We just need to GET DIRECTIONS and follow them.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
