“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
Back in November I was driving down to PA after a week of driving all over New England. I would plug in the address of my next destination and my GPS(GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM) would set a route for me to follow. Almost every drive that week it would suddenly say..."Re-Routing" I had not turned, or veered off course, I was on the road it told me to go on. "Why?! WHY am I being re routed?! I'm following YOUR DIRECTIONS!" I would shout. After the 5th or 6th time, I started laughing, and instead of getting fearful that I had made a mistake, or that I would be lead astray, I just said...
"OK GPS...Do your thing! I'm just driving." I began to trust.
So often, life takes what we percieve as twists or turns. God re-routes us, seemingly changing our direction. It can be frightening or frustrating. It can even feel like failure. We were headed towards one goal (We thought) and "suddenly" we are changing direction and heading towards something else.
God is good. He has taken GREAT care of me. I am blessed. So here is what I know...If I can relax and trust a GPS....a man made device. How much more can I, should I, and will I, TRUST the Good Good Father and Creator of the ALL THINGS to direct my paths. Mine is to lift everything to Him, and follow HIS lead. He is the real GPS (GOD POSITIONING SYSTEM)!
Here's the OTHER thing I know; It says PATHS....with an S. This means there will be MULTIPLE PATHS that GOD HIMSELF will direct us to and keep us on. Strap on your seat belts kids...and get ready for your grand God adventure! Plug into the REAL GPS...and you'll be all set. Trust!
Live to be a Blessing!
