How's your Spiritual GPS working?
Have you ever stopped to ask for directions?
How many times have you said:
"I know where I am going"
and then got lost getting there?
After another half hours drive, my wife said, "This doesn't look right" - "Of course it's right, I know where I'm going' - was my 'manly - I'm in control' response. And then it hit me when the sign read - Memphis 210 miles. I was going the wrong way - and had been for some time. So I pulled off and stopped.
"There is a way that seemeth right to a man, but ......" Proverbs 14:12
But aren't you thankful, that even though we may turn off the GPS, God doesn't . He continues to 'speak'. And it is in those times that we can 'Stop - get out the map (God's Word), reconnect the GPS (Holy Spirit), give Him our current 'location', (Prayer), and ask God to guide us back on the path toward home. (Heaven).
"The steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord" Psalm 37:23
