Imagine you are ten years old. Your dad smiles and says excitedly, “Pack your bags with two weeks’ worth of clothes!”
You ask, “Where are we going?”
Dad says, “I’ll tell you when we get there!”
Would you be afraid? Would you worry about where you’d sleep? Would you wonder if Dad was about to drop you off at a boot camp for kids? Abandon you?
The answer probably depends on how you view your dad.
Right now, we don’t know where we’ll be living in two weeks. All we know is that our lease is up and we have to move.
We don’t know if we’ll have more than one working vehicle. We bought what turned out to be a lemon. It’s sitting idle because we can’t afford to sink any more money into it. We’re not sure how our kids will get to day school. We don’t know if we’ll be living near work and school, or many miles away. We don’t know anything about our future home, or how we will get one. We’ve tried. All of our efforts have failed. We just don’t know.
But Dad knows!
He knows exactly where we’re going. He made all of the arrangements months ago. I guess that’s why He doesn’t seem worried at all.
We have to decide right now whether we really trust Him.
Either we believe He’s a good Father, or we don’t.
Either we believe His promises, or we don’t.
If we believe them, we have nothing to worry about.
Dad knows where we’re going. All we have to do is go with Him!
