My car has a back up camera screen that comes on when I’m backing up. Although I want to look at it while I’m backing up, another part of me wants to ignore it and look out the back window. I find it hard to trust the screen that was placed there to help.
How many times have we overlooked or bypassed something meant to help us because we had a better solution or wanted to rely on what felt better? There are safe guards in our lives but we must use them. A safeguard might be healthy boundaries or dietary restrictions. They could be wisdom from a trusted source or a mentor. It could be the Bible or spiritual wisdom. Whatever the safeguards are in your life, recognize them. They are there for a reason—to protect you.
What safeguards are in your life?
Have you trusted them?
Do you need other safeguards to help you reach your destination?
