Isn’t that how life seems at times. The road goes on forever and then suddenly abruptly ends at the foot of giant hill. Sometimes don’t you just want to give up. When you look at the long road ahead and see the climb to get to the top, your not sure if you can make it, or if it’s worth it. This can enter into our lives at so many times. A devastating illness, raising rebellious children, an addiction problem, financial ruins. The list could go on forever. Life at times is so completely overwhelming.
For those who walk in faith, we have an excellent example of how to face these times. Take time, stop and rest, sleep through the storm, don’t respond when your accused, love along the journey. These are a few of the things Yeshua did as He traveled that long road towards victory. He climbed up that unbearable mountain with a cross on His back. He accepted help when it was offered. He made the trip, but the thing we couldn’t see was the curve in the road. And satan was most definitely shocked, because when Yeshua hit that cold hard rock called the grave, He went into the next world and did some work and then turned around and came right back out to finish that last lap.
This picture is deceptive, it looks like it ends at the foot of the mountain, but as you get closer to the end, you will find that the road takes you around this mountain, not over it. That’s like life, we do not have full vision when we look ahead. We can be so easily deceived by the way things look. If you are a child of God, learn from the Son and walk the way He did. There is victory at the end of each trial, no matter how it looks.
