The trickster and his 99 days Part 5

The Promise


“…I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you…”

Like tiny trickles of water Junior remembered the words of God just as he’d heard them in his dream. He was grateful and deeply thankful because at that moment every bit of God’s promises returned to him.

His heart swelled with joy as he mused over the words of the message. He too had being considered worthy to hear the voice of God. What an honor. First he received the blessing of the firstborn. Now he will enjoy the rare privilege of hearing God just like his grandfather. Junior’s heart swelled the more as he thought of this awesome encounter.

“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven”

Junior marked that route and made a vow to God. He promised to give God a tithe of his wealth if God would be with him.

“If you will be with me and watch over me on this journey…”

Junior recognized the privilege of having the invisible companion – the guiding light that accompanies us on our life’s travels. Junior in some deep-seated thought was in agreement that being cunning wasn’t enough to get us through our days. And having had that encounter in his dream, he came to the conclusion that even though he may have a destination in mind, it wasn’t in his power to ensure his safety, provision, and success.

So in spite of his self-conceit and arrogance Junior believed however that he couldn’t do it all on his own.

Taking one quick glance at his map, Junior prepares to hitch hike to the Shepherdsville, a small countryside town where his Uncle lived.
