My silent cry did not fall unheard by the One who knows the depths of human need. The Same has greater concern that our need of Him be supplied, than that we be shielded from difficulty. He is touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but from His calm eternity He orders that difficulty will not destroy His children. God does not grapple with giants. He knows no defeat. I knew this was ground I needed to go over, and intellectually, I knew that God, for me, in this instant, was trustworthy. But intellect is not enough. God wants us to experience.
Turning I noticed, as if simply appearing from thin air, a man sitting inside a glass cubicle. I approached and asked if I could get a ticket to Colfax. The man stared at me blankly. “Cofax? Where’s dat? I’ve neve herd’of it.” I had this sinking feeling in my stomach. “Uh, it’s beyond Sacramento… You are supposed to be able to take the train to Sacramento, and then a bus—” “Oh, ye’ need Amtrak.” I nodded my head vigorously. “That’s ‘cross the bridge t’ward ‘a stadium.” “How do I get there?” I asked, wondering if I could beat the steady progression of time.
Following the man’s directions, I eventually came to the few benches and awnings that comprised the station. Intense minutes of waiting later and Amtrak paused for those of us desiring passage.
“When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straightened”, the Lord reminded me. Trust Me… Just trust Me. You have nothing to fear with Me by your side. Nothing.
