Better Than a GPS
While God gives us direction through the Bible, he is not a GPS that we
can stick on the windshield. God won’t say, “In three and a half years,
turn left and attend this college.” God leads us in a more subtle way,
through our hearts.
God’s leading may not always make sense to us. For one thing, his
choice of route may not be a straight line. He may lead us off the highway, against traffic or through a random desert. He may take us in a
complete circle and bring us right back where we started. He may lead
us out into the middle of the ocean and then tell us to make a U-turn.
The GPS only considers where we want to go and the shortest way to
get there. God considers an infinite eternity that includes where we
begin, where he wants us to go and what we need to learn along the
If we trust God to guide us, one day we’ll look back on our life and see
just what an incredible journey it was.
- Has God ever led you anywhere that surprised you? Explain.
- What’s the best thing to do when you don’t understand why the
Lord is leading you in a certain direction?
Dear God, you are amazing because you know the best route for every
person’s life. Guide our steps so that we go exactly where you want us
to go. Amen.
