As He did on the Emmaus road, we should look for Christ Himself to come alongside of us, even in our foolish and self-absorbed moments, and remind us of the “big picture” of all that God has done throughout history. As He did in the event on the road to Emmaus,
Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. Luke 24:45
We can expect that Christ is able and willing to give us orders today “by the Holy Spirit” so that specific guidance will mesh with the big-picture vision of the fulfillment of God’s global purpose for Christ’s glory.
