I took the photo when hiking by a lake recently. The small white dot in the middle of the picture is a fishing bobber. Clearly, a fisherman (or woman) got it tangled in the limbs hanging over the water and abandoned it there. As a result, what worked well in its element is of no practical use out of it. The same is true with us. God made us precisely as we are so we can fulfill his precise purpose for our lives. When we are in the "water" he intends for us, he can use us in ways that advance his kingdom in our world. But when we get tangled up in places we were not intended to go, we end up like this bobber. Every day, we need to surrender that day to the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18), asking him to lead us and empower us as we fulfill our Master's purpose for that day. When we do, he will use us as "fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). And we will know the joy of pleasing our Savior and the privilege of eternal significance. Are you hung up in the trees or bobbing on your "lake" today?

This is the way our skies looked in Dallas yesterday after storms passed through our area. However, if you were looking at this picture without my explanation, you might not know if the storms are receding or advancing. We experience the world as a space-time continuum in which yesterday becomes today becomes tomorrow. Any specific moment on that continuum is like a frozen frame in a video–it is difficult to know what will come next. The good news is that the Creator of all creation sees tomorrow more clearly than we can see today. As C. S. Lewis noted, if we think of time as a line on a page, God is the page. We can trust him with what we cannot see, knowing that he knows us and loves us unconditionally. If we can say, "the Lord is my shepherd," we can also say, "I shall not want" (Psalm 23:1). Corrie ten Boom was right: Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

These pictures were taken in Sepphoris during a recent trip to Israel. This city is not mentioned in Scripture, but it was the Roman capital in Galilee during the time of Jesus. As you can see, this mosaic floor is remarkable in its design, pointing to the cultural sophistication of the ancient Roman world. When Jesus began his public ministry, few would have imagined that an itinerant Galilean rabbi would launch a movement that would turn that world "upside down" (Acts 17:6) and outlive it by more than sixteen centuries. In the present pandemic, it's good to remember that Jesus is King of the universe and Lord of the world. Nothing we are facing surprises him or will defeat him. He's still on his throne. Here's the question: Is he on your throne?
