Men are such dumb sheep.
Most of us, at one time or another, bought the devil’s lie that life is better, she is prettier and she understands me, the salary’s higher, the car is safer, the neighbor is richer, the grass is greener . . . on the other side of the fence.
No it’s not.
Our problem is, men don’t know the difference between fences and guard rails. Fences are for farmers’ benefit. Fences separate cows from pigs and horses from goats. Fences confine animals in a favorable location for the farmer. The animals inside the fence are immobilized. They don’t go anywhere.
Guard rails, however, are for our benefit. Guard rails protect us.
On the other side of the guard rail is a 300-foot drop straight down. Plunging head long through trees and rocks. Not good. Dangerous. Harmful. Deadly.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
You’re not going anywhere that God is not with you. In fact, He was there before you thought about going there. If you stay inside the guard rail of God’s presence, God’s guidance and His mighty right hand, you won’t be in danger of falling off a steep cliff. You’ll be safe inside His guard rail and able to travel down His path in service to the Kingdom, always safe, always guarded.
