Wednesday - WOD 144 - GPS

So, The other day as I left work, I found myself turning on my WAZE app in need of the GPS to guide me home. As the voice began to show the ETA, I immediately questioned the direction it told me to go because it was not a familiar path. So I decided that the app was just wrong and I would go my normal way to get home. After several, "turn around" and "recalculating" messages, I ended up in Standstill Traffic by downtown Fort Worth! I hit major construction. And all because I was sure I knew better than the GPS.

While I was sitting there in Standstill traffic, the thought occurred to me that I have been guilty of taking the same stance with God and the path I am supposed to be on. When the Holy Spirit prompts me in a certain direction and puts things right in front of me I insist that I know a better route. Sometimes it is because I am uncertain where that road will lead me and I do not want to be out of my comfort zone. Once again, I am not trusting the GPS (God positioning system).

So many times in our Christian Journey we will come to construction in the road and we need to know the direction God has for us. At other times the road may be filled with obstacles, littered with pot holes, or tied up in “construction.” We need to hear God’s advice and counsel. The best part is that all we have to do is turn on our GPS (God’s Positioning System) and He is there. After all, He is our creator, our Father, and friend.
Psalm 32:8“I will guide you and teach you the way you should go. I will give you good advice and watch over you.”
He will never lead us down the wrong route or leave us when the road gets rough. Although we may not always understand why he steers us on a particular road, we can be confident that He knows how to get us safely to our final destination.
