GOING AND NOT KNOWING

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)

No fear haunts more than the fear of the unknown. Whether it be facing a new job or relocating our home or the dread we feel before surgery or awaiting results of medical tests, it stalks our path all our days. …

The life of the Christian is always uncertain. There are no guarantees. Paul tells the Ephesian elders at a time of change in his life, "And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there" (Acts 20:22). Going and Not Knowing seems to be the paradigm of the life of faith. But in the unknown places, God is there before you.
