Go with God. If you are planning to head off overseas or around Australia, make sure that it is a spiritual journey as well as a physical one. Many people who have travelled believe they have rediscovered God on their journeys, as they experience the beauties of his world, the kindness of complete strangers and the whisperings of God’s Spirit.

There are other travellers who have lost their way as they travel. They planned to cut loose, go wild and do whatever they wanted to while away from the restraints of their parents, their friends, their church or their social group. So they had their sex and drugs and rock and roll holiday and probably got exactly what they were after. Even so, God was there with them no matter how hard they tried to avoid him.

Psalm 139 has some great encouragement for people having travel adventures. “If I flew away beyond the east or lived in the farthest place in the west, you would be there to lead me, you would be there to help me.”

God gives us a joy like nothing else can. Spiritual highs are better for you than any drug could ever be. The joy of the Lord can be really refreshing. It can renew our energy levels and get us motivated for a full and vibrant life again.
