Road Trip


If you have ever gone on a road trip with children for more than an hour then you will have undoubtedly experienced you share of Are we there yet? He’s looking at me, and  I have to go to the bathroom.

Traveling with kids can be an experience but I often wonder how we sound to God on this road trip called life?

How many times have you asked God: “Are we there yet?”

As humans we have a hard time waiting for pretty much everything. God’s timing is usually not our timing and when we do have a waiting period one can be sure there will be some form of toddler whining. We want what we want when we want it and we want it now.

But just as parents have a clear view of their destination on those long road trips God has a clear destination for our life. You see God can see the big picture, He knows where the road ends. His timing is ALWAYS perfect timing.

Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

Sometimes when we wait on the Lord it is for a long period of time and other times it is for short periods. While we wait we are refreshed if we wait on the Lord. It is when we try to force the hand of God that we are out of His will and consequences abound.

“but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Can you trust God to help you get to your destination on the road trip of life? Just like a child must rely on their parent to take care of them the Lord wants to do the same for you.

Don’t grow weary waiting for what you have been asking for. Remember that the father can see your destination and He will always be faithful and will not forget you.
