The Big Picture!
"Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken" (Joshua 21:45)
When actors and actresses make a movie, it’s the director who sees the “big picture” and the overall direction. A lot of times they don't understand everything the director is doing but they trust the director's guidance...knowing he sees the finished picture.
Throughout scripture we can see so many of faithful "characters" not knowing their direction but having a promise of a great "big picture".
Moses could have questioned the big picture as he had 2 million Israelites looking to him to lead them into the Promised Land, Joshua could have questioned while standing with Jericho before him...But they trusted the Directed, the Overseer of their souls.
They both trusted and responded with complete devotion and surrender to His amazing Guide, and Direction and “not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken” (21:45).
We too can abandon ourselves to our Director and rest in His faithfulness, promises and guidance knowing He sees the "big picture" and the beginning from the end!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
