Whenever I am under the leadership of another person one of the questions I have is- What does this person want for me? Other questions I have are; what is this person’s vision, what are this person’s goals, what does this person want for others besides me. If we need to rely one someone, we want to know what their motivation is and how will it affect us. When I travel abroad, I am keenly aware of the importance of being able to trust translators, friends from that culture etc.
As I journey in this life, I am mindful of who it is that is on the journey with me. I am thankful that the One who is our Creator, Savior, and God has already stated what He wants for all of us. Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full”. Wow!! Stop and think about that for a moment. Jesus our guide on the journey wants us to experience the fullest life possible. Some mistake that to mean we will all be millionaires, but that is not what Jesus was speaking in reference to. Full life means relationship with God. It means eternal life with God that will never end. It means having God in our lives now. It also means a life full of friendships, meaning, purpose, and realization of why we are here.
Jesus is the guide who has our best interest in His heart and mind. He has already proven that. He proved it when He died on the cross for our sins even though He had no obligation to do so. He wants to forgive us and come into our lives. We need to trust Him and as Him to do so, and then He becomes our guide on our journeys.
