The Journey is the Destination!

Posted by Cinda On March - 10 - 2013

“For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.” Psalm 48:14

mapI often find myself wishing I knew God’s plan for my life in its entirety. Wishing I could spread it out on my dining room table like a map and place my finger on it and say, “There! That’s the destination.”

So often I forget that with the Lord, the journey is the destination. God desires to teach me and mold me in the moments of everyday life. Sanctification isn’t some event I’m longing for in the distant future, but the day-by-day work of the Holy Spirit in me.

I may rush around trying to get “there,” but in reality I’m already where God wants me to be if I’m open hearted and willing to submit my will to His. I remember that today is all God has given me to focus on, and that loving Him with all of my heart is the command He has given me for today.

GOING DEEPER
• Why do you think we try to run ahead of God?
• Why are we so consumed with reaching our final destination?
• What would your life be like if you focused on each moment with Jesus instead of on what’s coming next?
• What can you do to help yourself remember that the journey is the destination?

Take a moment and ask the Lord to help you slow down and let Him lead.
Ask Him to make you more sensitive to His voice.
