Mark 8:12 reveals Jesus’ frustration with people asking for a sign,but asking for a sign takes on a whole new meaning when you’re driving around in circles.
Several states have bad signage. For example, Tennessee, which can’t afford to put signs where they need to be because every bridge no matter how remote or small has a sign because they are all named after someone. Other states such as Alabama, Florida and New Mexico give their roads multiple names. This makes it a little difficult to know where you’re going or even where you are. But then we get to the northeast there is an abundance of signage madness; roads with multiple names, lack of signs, incorrect signs. Lord give me a sign because I’m always going in the wrong direction.
Such it is in life, we look for signs along the way to give us direction. But often the signs can be confusing, misinterpreted or not even there. But we have the only sign we need, Jesus. As long as we have our eyes, our focus, on him we will not get lost. Take the focus off of Him for just a second in distraction and our path may not seem so clear.
When the path is not clear, covered in a fog of confusion, just remember confusion doesn’t come from God. Renounce it and return on your journey. And when you’re not sure if you’re going the right way or you can’t hear his voice, just keep going the way Jesus told you until you hear something different.
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. – Psalm 32:8 (NLT)
