Vaya con Dios means “Go with God” and “Trust in the Lord”


Life is made up of choices, and very often we have no idea what choice to make. Proverbs 3:5-6 reads: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not your understanding: In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. We can see from these verses that the first prerequisite is confidence in the Sovereign: “Trusht in the Lord with all your heart.”

The second prerequisite is caution regarding one’s self: “And lean not on your own understanding.” The third prerequisite is consideration: “In all your ways acknowledge Him”. Yes, Vaya con Dios! Our actions must be examined in light of God’s will for our lives, consulting Him, recognizing that His plan for us is best.

An attitude for “Vaya con Dios” obtains the promise of Divine Guidance: “And He shall direct your ways.” Proverbs 3:6 assures us that God guides His children in their daily lives. The Lord is vitally interested in directing us in every area, under all circumstances. And His guidance is practical and  patient. He leads His children step by step.

The slogan, “Vaya con Dios” is a declaration that God’s guidance is perfect-infallible, reliable, and trustworthy. And Maria Isabelle “Beng” Climaco Salazar does not seem to wonder or worry if God will guide. As a Christian she knows that God’s guidance is personal. He wants to direct us straight and plain-safely to our journey’s end. God’s guidance is practical.

Vaya con Dios is a key principle in guidance. It means submission to the sovereign. And Beng Climaco knows that the Lord is not looking for better methods or bigger men or women. He is looking for surrendered hearts. Another principle of divine guidance is searching the Scriptures. God speaks to those who trust Him through His Word.

Supplication in the Spirit is necessary to obtain divine guidance. And yes, Viable Option believes, that as a Christian Maria Isabel Garcia Salazar Y Climaco exercises daily, disciplined, diligent prayer. She knows that prayer is never a waste of time. Very often the Lord gives us insights while we are in the very act of praying.

But we also need suggestions rom our soul-mates- the advice of our close friends and family members. A final principle is satisfaction in the soul, an inner conviction or “guts instinct,” a sense of peace from God about a possible course of action. Does Beng Climaco has that peace with the Lord? The answer is , YES!

From the start, in all her candidacy, she never pretended to be a great achiever and made all kinds of promises; because she knows the future (even the next seconds of her life), does not belong to her. She knows God is in control. Her trust is in the Lord. She may discuss issues, but does not engage in argument because she cares for others. She knows that if she wins an argument, she could lose a friend. For her, it’s Vaya Con Dios. She does not criticize her critics, She puts her trust in the Lord.

Yes, the message of Proverbs 3:5-6 is for all of us. May 13, is an election day. If you are thinking to do a “Vaya Con Dios”, then go for it, for that indeed is a thought of greatness. Vaya con Dios means “Go with God” and “Trust in the Lord”
