Driving Miss Daisy

 One of the most famous of stage plays, and later a highly successful movie, was “Driving Miss Daisy.”  Miss Daisy would enter the back seat of her 1949 Hudson Commodore Custom Eight, four door sedan, tell Hoke, her driver her desired location, and he would transport her there.  One can assume that most of the desired destinations, and the routes by which to get there, were known to Hoke.

            However, if, as the driver, he was not familiar with a proposed location, or the means by which to arrive there, he would have two options.  One, he could consult a map, as paper maps were readily available and supplied for free.  Option number two was to ask someone for directions.

            When the Bible says, regarding the Holy Spirit, “He will guide you into all truth…”and be”…carried along by the Holy Spirit,” it is like saying that we are to let the Holy Spirit take the wheel of our life; to be our driver.  For the Holy Spirit will know God’s ways and the path our lives are to follow.

            We are, in submission, to be passengers to the leading of the Holy Spirit, the One appointed, by God, upon to us for that purpose, in addition to comfort, discernment, and strength.

John 14:15-21; 16:7; II Peter 1:21
