EXIT 73

EXIT 73
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Every morning, five days a week, I merge to the right and follow Exit 73.
A part of my every day routine, it gets me to where I need to be.
It’s never led me wrong or changed its course in the night;
It’s never moved to the left or vanished suddenly from sight.
I’ve never traveled down Exit 73 and gotten lost or questioned my destination.
It’s always the same …
Every day.
The sign can be trusted.
-----
God’s word is like a roadmap and His Spirit like a compass.
When we listen to what He tells us and take the directives that He gives us …
We arrive exactly where we need to be.

If He tells us to exit to the right,
We need to tap the blinker and begin to merge to the right.
The longer we travel with God the more secure we become with following the directives He gives.
We maybe don’t understand but we can still trust His hand.
We must obey and move with Him.
------
There’s something God has for you to do,
And someplace God has for you to be.
I don’t know who’s reading this and I don’t know where your “Exit 73” is …
But I know God will be faithful.
I know His word can be trusted ...
 And you’ll be glad you took the Exit.
God has got His hand on you for something special.
Ask for Exit 73,
Put your blinker on ...
And take it.

Psalm 119:105
