"So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you." Deuteronomy 31:6

When you're driving do you ever see the red sign that says New Road Layout Ahead...?

I know when I see it I start to panic, I start to think, 'Oh no, what way do I go now. What if I get it wrong? What if I go in the wrong lane and take the wrong turn?'

When we turn to Jesus and fix our eyes on him, there's a New Road layout in our life - our past is forgotten along with the mistakes that we've made along the way. This new road layout is not one to fear, it's not one to panic about because Jesus has gone ahead and laid it out for you. The only thing you need to do is put your total reliance on him.

It's not for you to see ahead and worry about what might come. The only thing you need to do is trust in His unfailing love for you, rest knowing the New Road layout is full of His goodness.

God's hand is upon it and He has good things for you. When the road may turn and twist remember He's got you by the hand leading you all the way.

Rest in the knowledge that God is in control of the New Road Layout and you're not going it alone!
