Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
In the picture I was given, the Church vans are out in the back parking lot, covered with snow. I could safely assume that you couldn’t see anything from the inside, and in turn couldn’t drive the buses.
The scripture states that we must trust God with all our hearts and not rely on our own insight, but I would certainly be very frightened to drive those vans covered in snow. I couldn’t rely on my own sight to help me drive safely. But if I put my faith in God, I can drive that van anywhere I need it to go. And in my life, I can do anything as long as I have faith in God.
The season of Advent is full of blind faith. Mary had to trust the angel Gabriel that Jesus was the son of God, sent as a gift to us all. Joseph had to trust that Mary had been faithful. The shepherds had to trust that the angels’ words would guide them to Jesus on the night of his birth.
Blind faith can be frightening, but when we put our trust fully in God, we can do all things.
