Mystery Trip

Living in the busy suburbs of New York City, it was
always nice to scoop up the family and go for a little
Sunday afternoon drive in the country. Just to our
north was a beautiful rural area where we often went
to wander, explore, and revisit some favorite places
we found. Seldom did I offer a detailed advance
itinerary. That was okay with two of our kids. Not
our oldest son. When I said, "We're going for a
mystery trip today," he didn't jump up and down
with excitement. In fact, he suddenly went into
interrogator mode. "Where are we going, Dad?
How long will it take to get there? How long are
we going to be there? What time will we get back?
Where are we going to eat? What are we going to
do there?" Finally, I just turned to the back seat,
looked him in the eye, and said those two bottom
line words: "Trust me." And we had some great
mystery trips!

It could be that your Heavenly Father is taking you
on a mystery trip right now. You're not sure where
He's taking you. You're not sure what's going to
happen there. You only know that He's taking you
for a ride beyond what you know, beyond what's
comfortable and familiar. You're asking, "Father,
where are we going? Where are you taking me?"
And He's looking at you lovingly and He's
simply saying, "Trust me, my child."

And although there are all kinds of fears and
questions and possibilities, you can relax in
the ironclad assurance of Ephesians 1:11, our
word for today from the Word of God. It takes
off the zoom lens that's all focused on the little
dot in front of you and it replaces it with God's
wide-angle lens that will help you see the big
canvas of your life and His plan. The picture
goes all the way back to before there was a
you - before there was a world. God had His
eye on you even then. The Bible says, "In
Him we were also chosen, having been
predestined according to the plan of Him
who works out everything in conformity
with the purpose of His will." Your life is
part of a detailed, eternal plan. And when
you give your heart to Jesus, God becomes
your Heavenly Father and you start to
embrace His plan - a plan where He
"works out everything" to carry out
His perfect will. Your Father doesn't
miss a thing.

So you can dare to ride with Him into the
unknown, knowing that He loves you and
He makes no mistakes. He knows what you
need to know, He knows when you need to
know it, and He's given you as much
information as you need right
now. You see a step by taking a step.
And you're developing the spiritual
faculty that opens up all of heaven's
best to you - faith. In Hebrews 11,
God tells us that "without faith it is
impossible to please God." He defines
faith as "being sure of what we hope
for and certain of what we do not see."
Then He gives an example: "By faith
Abraham, when called to go to a place
where he would later receive his inheritance,
obeyed and went, even though he did
not know where he was going."

If you know where you're going, you
don't need faith. Besides, Biblical
faith isn't in a destination or an outcome.
It's faith in a person - a God who knows
everything, controls everything, and
gave everything for you when
He gave His Son to die for you.
Anyone who loves you that much
will never do you wrong.

If you've never opened your life to
Jesus, the One who died to forgive
your sin so you could live the life
you were created to live, tell Him
today, "Jesus, I'm Yours. I've driven
long enough. It's all Yours from today
on." My little booklet, Yours For Life,
can help you get started with Him. Just
let me know that you want it.

Don't be afraid to go with your Heavenly
Father on this mystery trip. It's only a
mystery to you, not to Him. You don't
need to know where you're going. You
only need to know who's driving, and
that's your Heavenly Father who loves
you more than you can imagine.

Verse of the Day

Thought &


* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

God loves you so much that He died for you!!!
