There has been a detour set up on a roadway that we regularly travel for some time.  It has been a very difficult and dangerous stretch  to travel as the detour was very crooked requiring slow speed and keen awareness to maneuver through safely. Under best conditions we could expect to sit in a slow moving line of backed-up traffic, and most days we found ourselves at a total standstill for long periods before moving on through.

But just this week we came upon the stretch of road only to discover that the detour was gone.  A short straight stretch of asphalt had replaced the dangerous crooked roadway.  There was no longer any delays or backed-up traffic with which to deal.  It was now just smooth sailing straight through…what had been so difficult had suddenly become so easy!

The Lord is speaking to many of you through this.  Hear His message and be blessed…

I have gone before you and made the way.  Now walk in it.

Exodus 23:

20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Isaiah 45:
2I  will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
3And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
