Modern Day Miracle

I [God] will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye."1

According to an article some time ago in 'The Recorder,' "A 19-year-old girl by the name of Khun Paot, escaped the Khmer Rouge rule in Cambodia after an arduous journey with 100 others through miles of jungle, canals, mountains, and rivers. Standing between them and freedom were communist soldiers, the elements, and a stretch of jungle ground covered with thorns. Most of the escapees were barefoot or wore flimsy thongs.

"A midnight-like darkness hampered the struggling group as it crossed a valley between two high mountain ranges. 'We could see absolutely nothing,' Paot later told a missionary, Maxine Stewart. 'We didn't even know where to step.' Suddenly hundreds of fireflies swarmed into view. Their glow made enough light for the people to see the path. The refugees reached the next mountain by firefly light, said Mrs. Stewart.

"After Paot was transferred to Kham Put refugee camp, she was invited to a Christian meeting. 'I know that old man,' she exclaimed at a picture on the wall of the chapel. 'He is the one who led us and showed us the way to Thailand and freedom.' She was pointing to a picture of Jesus."2

Ever since my youth, every morning I have committed and trusted my life and way to God, trusting Him to guide me all through my life knowing that He could make a much better job of my life than I ever could. Now, as I look back over the years, I can genuinely say in the words of the hymn writer, "Jesus led me all the way."

God will do the same for you, too, should you genuinely commit and trust your life to Him every day for the rest of your life.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank You that when I commit and trust my life to You, You will teach me in the way that I should go and will guide me with Your eye. And that's what I do today. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name, amen."
