Daddy Is Driving
A speaker (Dr. Wan) has once shared his experience: While his 
family and he were in Europe, there was once that they need to drive 
3 days continuously, day and night, to get to Germany. So, they all 
got into the car -- he, his wife, and his 3 years old daughter. 
His little daughter has never traveled at night before. She was 
scared the first night in the car, with deep darkness outside. 
"Where are we going, Daddy?" "To your uncle's house, in Germany." 
"Have you been to his house before?" "No." 
"Then, do you know the way?" "Maybe, we can read the map." 
Short pause. "Do you know how to read the map?" "Yes, we will get 
there safely." 
Another pause. "Where are we going to eat if we get hungry before 
arriving?" "We can stop by restaurants if we are hungry." 
"Do you know if there are restaurants on the way?" "Yes, there 
"Do you know where?" "No, but we will be able to find some." 
The same dialogue repeated a few times within the first night, 
and also the second night. But on the third night, his daughter was 
quiet. The speaker thought that she might have fallen asleep, but 
when he looked into the mirror, he saw that she was awake and was 
just looking around calmly. He couldn't help wondering why she was 
not asking the questions anymore -- 
"Dear, do you know where we are going?" "Germany, Uncle's house." 
"Do you know how we are getting there?" "No." 
"Then why aren't you asking anymore?" "Because Daddy is driving." 
Because Daddy is driving. This answer from a 3 years' old girl 
has then become the strength and help for this speaker for the many 
years follow whenever he has questions and fears on his journey with 
the Lord. Yes, our Father is driving. We may know the destination 
(and sometimes we may just know it like the little girl -- "Germany", 
without understanding where or what it really is). We do not know the 
way, we do not know how to read the map, we do not know if we can 
find restaurants along the way. But the little girl knew the most 
important thing -- Daddy is driving -- and so she is safe and secure. 
She knows that her Daddy will provide all that she needs. 
Do you know your Daddy, the Great Shepherd, is driving today? 
What are your behavior and response as a passenger, His child? 
You may have asked many questions before, but can you like the 
little girl, starts to realize the most important focus should 
be "Daddy is driving?"


"Neither doctrinal purity nor diligent labor will ever be a substitute for passionate devotion to God."
