In our journey of faith we will encounter many crossroads. It is at those crossroads we will decide to travel the road of faith or the road of fear. Sometimes our fear overrides our faith and down that road we go! We easily become discouraged, wondering why it seems our Lord has not intervened. The longer we travel that road, the more fear we take on, choking out the sense of solidity and confidence the road of faith would have brought.
Oh, how wonderful it is to walk the road of faith! It is on that road we discover who God is! We are able to receive His love and care. We are able to trust the Holy Spirit to guide us through the darkest storm. It is on the journey of faith we discover how our dependence on Jesus opens us to the power of the Holy Spirit, a power that breaks down every barrier, defeats every foe, and delivers us from our fear. We can depend on Christ’s promise, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth” (John 16:13a).
