At life’s crossroads? Let Jesus give you directions
Life’s road is rarely straight. We often find ourselves in places we didn’t expect or want. How are you going with the uncertainty of life at the moment? Do you feel like you’re standing at a crossroads and not sure which direction to take? There are so many unknowns and what ifs. However, we don’t have to step into the uncertainty alone.
When Jesus was facing His violent crucifixion, He took the time to explain to His followers that although they couldn’t go with Him immediately they would one day be reunited with Him in His eternal kingdom. One candid follower verbalized his concern,
“Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life’” (John 14:5-6).
If we trust in Jesus, not only does He show us the way, He is the way. He makes the way for us to walk safely to the ultimate destination — eternal peace and glory with God. Wherever we’re heading, whatever we’re seeking on this earth, is not worth comparing to where Jesus can take us. Life’s road will always have bumps and sharp turns we aren’t expecting and don’t want but when we trust in Jesus we can be confident in where we’re going.
Bible verse: John 14:5-6 “Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life’”.
Prayer: Dear Lord, Please help me to trust Jesus is the way. May I let Jesus direct me in this life and take me safely to the next life.
