This past weekend, I took a 12 hour drive to Sacramento, CA from Scottsdale, AZ to support a friend whose 21 year old son has gone on to be with the Lord. On this road trip, I recall turning down the volume on the GPS so I can listen to my music and/or to be on the phone. (I didn’t need to hear the computer’s voice because I can see the map and directional arrows on the screen).
“My sheep listen to my voice. I know them and they follow me.” John 10:27
As I am sitting here thinking about this roller coaster ride that I travel on in so many important areas of my life, I realize that I have turned off God’s voice and am trying to follow the pictures! I keep turning off the road at a bunch of dead end streets!
Some of the Good News is:
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
It is never too late to turn around and get back on track with God’s plan for us. Start a small goal like: taking a few minutes each morning to pray, is a good start to making that U-Turn. Ending each night in prayer for just a moment to thank Him for our day is helpful.
Before things get so out of control, we need to turn the GPS voice system back on high and stop wasting time on dead end roads.
