There is the story of a boy who was walking with his father along a lonely road at night, carrying a lantern. He told his father he was afraid, because the lantern showed such a little way ahead. The father answered, “That is so, but if you walk straight on, you will find that the light will reach to the end of the journey.”

God often gives us light for only a little way ahead, but He always gives at least that, and so He always gives us light enough for the whole journey.
