All through our lives we never stop learning new things and discovering things that have been around for ages.
A few days ago, my husband was working online and he came across a website he had not seen before. It was an internet digital library. It contains millions of books of all kinds that can be read online. But, even more amazing, it’s free.
Dean discovered a Christian book on there that he is reading in print. I had said I would like to read that book too, but it wasn’t available to download on to my kindle. Dean registered with the library and offered to register me on my kindle, so I could access books.
But I am rather like the ten spies who went to spy out the Promised Land and came back with a negative report. I thought I wouldn’t be able to understand how to use the digital library. So, I responded negatively to Dean’s suggestion.
However, he persuaded me. And guess what? I was able to understand it and read the book I wanted. Also, I could even listen to it being read.
Our text today says the Lord will lead the blind on unfamiliar paths. I believe we are all blind in one sense. We need the Lord to guide us in our planning and decisions.
Most people want to feel comfortable and secure. Some are more adventurous than others and love a challenge. Isn’t it good that the Lord knows each of us individually and knows what we are capable of, and, also, what would crush us. He is gentle and humble and knows what is best.
The ten spies didn’t respond to Joshua and Caleb’s encouragement to go into the Promised Land, and as a result, they lost their opportunity. May that not be true of you or me!
