Many of us have seen or participated in a game where one person is blind folded and their partner leads them around obstacles to get to the other side of the course. The individual blind folded has no sight, no sense of direction, they just simply trust the voice of their partner to keep them safe.
The same can be said with us, as we follow God. Oftentimes we want to trust Him, and we want to give Him all that we have and follow his voice, however we get frightened because we can’t see the way. We can’t see how everything looks or how it will turn out, and so we peak under our blindfold. We don’t listen to His voice, and we do what we think is best. We must learn to trust God, with a spiritual “blindfold.” We need to trust when we don’t know how it will all turn out. He created us, He knows us better than we know ourselves, and He will lead us to a path even better than we could imagine. The hard part is to just trust him, not to peak, not to give up or let fear settle in, but to trust His voice and follow after Him. – Jazmin Hallam
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:11-13 NLT
