If we know our ultimate destination is secure, we can rest in God regarding the journey. A friend shared this illustration with me: You arrive at the airport to book a flight, the person assisting you tells you that they have two options available to you.

1. The plane doesn’t look as good, the inflight entertainment leaves a lot to be desired, the flight might be a bit bumpy but they can guarantee arrival at your destination.
2. The plane looks fantastic, they fly higher than most, superb meals and inflight entertainment, quiet and smooth but they can’t guarantee that you’ll arrive at your destination.

Which flight will you take? You and I have chosen the flight in which the final destination is secure. The journey may not always be ideal, but the destination is secure and therefore anything we may face is manageable and ‘overcomer-able’ because the destination is secure.

In the process of the journey, we can sometimes loose perspective and we miss the moment. Perhaps we can become obsessed with the goal that we had had in mind. The truth is life is about the journey. Each leg of the journey has its own opportunities and joys. We should get to the stage where we consciously enjoy every moment. Our attitude should be one of ‘finding joy in the journey’. We each have our story, and God wants that story to be a beautiful tapestry of all our experiences and ultimately His hand in weaving it all together into something good and something special that gives us our unique testimony and story.

Romans 8:28 ‘And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.’

Let Him turn things around for you. Let HIM ‘work ALL things together’ for your good. Make loving God your priority and remember that you are called according to His purposes.

Genesis 50:20 ‘You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.’

Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’
