Do you remember when you were a kid and your dad put you on his lap and allowed you to the steer the car? It felt like you were driving it, and it was both an exciting and exhilarating sensation. Even though you had your hands on the wheel in reality it was your dad who drove and steered the car. His hands were also on the wheel and he controlled the accelerator and what else needed to drive safely. It was impossible for you to drive off the road or take a wrong turn. Whenever you made a wrong move it was immediately caught up and corrected by his far stronger arms. If you tried to steer to the left in a right turn the car would nevertheless steer to the right because he was in command. He never chided you for your lack of driving skills, did he? You were in a totally safe environment with one who could drive, and who knew every twist and turn on the road, but it felt like you were driving the vehicle. No images can accurately describe or give justice to our union with God, but this image, when it came to me last evening, spoke volumes to me.
