“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.” ― Corrie ten Boom
Joseph had a dream of leading his family, but he became an Egyptian slave.
Moses thought he could rescue his people from slavery, but he became a fugitive from the law.
Daniel hoped to be a witness for God in the Babylonian court, but he became the menu for a group of lions.
All three men eventually realized their purposes, but only after going through a dark tunnel wondering where the Engineer of their lives was taking them.
God could make our paths smooth and easy, but He rarely does.
And He has good reasons for everything He does.
Thinking God will make life easy and understandable is perhaps the greatest hindrance to our faith.
Are you in a tunnel right now?
Sit still and trust the Engineer.
