I started thinking, what are some other well-known signs that cause us to immediately know what is being referred to and offered - and how often do we know just what we're getting when we "make use" of what is being offered by that sign (i.e. go inside and purchase a hamburger)?
Jesus is the way, the truth and the light. No man comes to the Father, but by Him. Letting God "drive our van" (translate: lead our life) is the best way to reach our final destination safely - and to make those various meaningful stops along the way better -- much, much better. God promises His children, "Lo, I am with you always - even unto the ends of the earth." I smile, thinking, that's the kind of driver I want maneuvering me through the pitfalls and rocky roads of this life.
When I can't understand what's written on those signs before my sometimes tear-filled eyes, He knows what every letter and punctuation mark means and He will get me through the obstacle course of life, eventually delivering me safely to my ultimate destination -- heaven.
