We are waking up to a brand new week. Our scripture today tells us that God has set before us a highway—a way that he wants us to live this week—the way of holiness.
I don’t know about you, but I am not wild about driving on US 19. It is so congested with traffic—some drivers moseying along with no place to go and seemingly no care in the world. Others are racing, crossing in and out of lanes, running lights, tailgating. God sets before each of us a highway and it is our responsibility to decide how we are going to navigate it.
How are you doing on this “Highway to Holiness?” Are you cruising on auto-pilot? If you are driving with the sure belief that God is in control of your destiny and cruising along trusting Him, then that is a good thing. However, many of us are on auto-pilot—letting circumstances define our course, following our emotions and fickle feelings. Some travelers feel like they are running out of gas. It might be time to stop and refuel. How are you making sure that you have the spiritual energy to travel life’s highway? Are you stuck on the side of the road feeling broke-down or lost?
God promises to prepare this road for you. God doesn’t just point the way; He travels with you. He will keep you safe. Verse 10 says that those who travel on God’s way of holiness “will sing songs of everlasting joy.” As you are driving down the highway this week, think about what your driving pattern might be saying about your spiritual life. Determine to travel the highway to holiness with a song in your heart.
Prayer: Lord, I trust you to be in the driver’s seat of my life. Lead me safely home.
Traveling together down the highway,
