Recently a friend of mine told me that what he needed most right now was a roadmap. Not for the road, but for his life. Successful in business endeavors, he was now trying to figure out what God might want him to do next. Apprehensive to take a step without a roadmap, he asked my advice. “Just take the next step you can see,” I told him. Since, as Christians, we are to “live by faith and not by sight” (2 Cor 5:7), the most clarity we can expect is to see the next step. The lamp David had in mind when he penned this psalm shed only enough light to ensure that he was still on the path. And so it is with us. Out of destination anxiety, we often strain our eyes look so far down the path that we blind ourselves to the next step we need to take.
Your thoughts? Is destination anxiety keeping you from seeing your next step?
