Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped there near the water.
Every so often I find it, when I’m hiking. That place where the view, the temperature, the shade, the water, everything lines up for that “perfect spot.” I know that one is coming, just ahead, maybe around the next corner. It is the search for those spots that keeps me hiking.
It is because of this that I can take the cold, the rain, the bugs, and other trail problems. Just knowing that once in a while I’ll find an Elim on the path gives me hope.
Our journey through life should be no different. I’d like every day to be an Elim type day, but I know that won’t happen. As a matter of fact, it would probably make for a very boring life. We know that we’re going to encounter problems. But just when we need it, up comes a day that makes all the others worthwhile.
We must live in hope, the expectation that there are good days ahead. The only guarantee of an Elim, however, is if we follow the trail mapped out for us by the Master. His Word, the Guide for your life, brings you out to the best spots on the trail of life.
Meditate on His Word to you today. Allow it to sink deep into your heart. Only then will it guide your steps and take you to those perfect spots in Christ.
