I will never forget an ill-fated sightseeing trip our family took while vacationing in Colorado. A close relative led the way as we drove through the scenic Rocky Mountains. But when we turned off the main road onto a dirt road I became a little suspicious. I asked our tour guide if he knew where he was going. He said, “Trust me. I know where I’m going.” Farther along though, as the dirt road gave way to a narrow trail I once again questioned our guide. Again he answered, “Trust me. I know where I’m going.” Several hours (and miles) later as we crossed the Wyoming state line, our confident guide confessed that he had been lost all along.
Many people are lost today as they are travelling down the highway of life. Sadly, because of pride or just outright stubbornness, many refuse to admit they are lost. You hear it all the time, “Trust me. I know where I’m going.” Famous last words.
Life is a journey from here to eternity. Do you know where you are going? While many refuse to admit they are lost, and while others have received some bad directions that are taking them farther down the wrong road, God has graciously given us a roadmap that shows the way. “This is the way, walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21).
It’s a mistake to run the race of life trusting in yourself or looking to another person for directions. Run the race looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Put your trust in Him alone. He knows the way. He is the way.
