Carl loved working on his farm. He loved the solitude and sense of accomplishment. One day though, working alone, he was injured severely. In fact, if he didn’t get to the hospital, he would likely die.
So, he banged the door of his old pickup shut and took off. He pulled into the hospital parking lot and lost what little consciousness he had.
Waking up 24 hours later after surgery, he realized he remembered nothing of his injury or even getting to the hospital.
In effect, the God he loved and trusted had driven him to town.
1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
We can never save ourselves. It’s then that God proves Himself to us and carries us to safety.
Lord, thank you for taking over when we can’t. We’re so eager to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps in the midst of trouble. But the truth is, we’re bound to arrive safely at our destination when we let you take the wheel. Thank you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
