Have you ever been lost and didn’t know which way to go? Struggled to see the end of the path, only to find out there are several turns? Wanted to get to the finish line, but the finish line wasn’t close enough? Which direction to turn? How far until the end, the answer, the finish, the solution?
Well, if you are out enjoying autumn fun in the countryside these are the questions posed while navigating the corn maze. Increasing in popularity, these treks can be torture (for older ladies like me), challenging (mothers with small children may find it so), but still – fun.
Following Jesus is a lot like walking through a corn maze. You don’t always know which direction to turn. You can’t see the path ahead. We will make wrong decisions. But, just like the staff members watching over the maze and its travelers, God watches over us. He can set our feet on the right path. He can block the wrong direction and tell us which way to turn.
For the corn maze, there is a map, and the counsel of the people who work there. For the maze of life, we have the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit.
Don’t stay lost.
“… He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake” Psalm 23:3 (NASB).
