Road Map Vs. GPS

February 22nd, 2012

RG AUDIO 022212Psalm 139:13-24

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I don’t have a GPS. Call me old-fashioned, but I still like the feel of a good map in my hands, the smell of ink on the paper, and the tremendous challenge of folding it back correctly. (That part is still a mystery to me!) Actually, I’m convinced the easiest way to get good directions is simply to stop at a gas station and ask, “How do I get there?”

Technology is constantly changing, and oftentimes an atlas is outdated. But one surefire way to get precise direction is to seek it from our heavenly Father. He’ll never steer us wrong. When we trust him explicitly, he shows us how to avoid roadblocks set up by our enemy, Satan, and he empowers us to maneuver around the potholes and detours.

The world offers guidance through media, astrology, celebrities and politicians—all offering opinions on which way we should turn. God is a reliable source. He is our road map.

    I have a GPS and hate it. Not long ago you posted another thought along the GPS and I shared it on FB with the comment “God’s GPS will never steer you wrong!” So thankful for that! Our car GPS has steered us wrong a couple of times. It frustrates me too much to use it very often. Like you, I prefer a map. And when a gas attended tells you one way, go that way! (Don’t let your passenger talk you into using the GPS. lol) Be thankful you don’t have one in your car. Thank God, he’ll never steer us wrong, even if we don’t always understand the direction He is taking us in at the moment. 🙂
