Following God’s GPS! Part Two.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
God’s mercy helps us navigate life’s difficult decisions and steers us through life. The message of Proverbs 3:5-6 is that God’s people should rely on Him, not on their understanding of technology, for guidance. This is a good reminder for us in the 21st century when so many people rely on GPS devices and other forms of technology for navigation. Even in a day when GPS devices seem infallible, it is important to remember that God is always with us and that we can always rely on Him for guidance.
Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” This verse is a reminder that God is our navigator. He will guide us through the darkness and help us find our way. Therefore, we must be careful not to go off the path God has set for us. Instead, we need to follow His Word and let it be a light for our path. God’s Word is also a lamp to our feet. It will show us the way to go and help us avoid obstacles in our direction. So, let us trust God’s Word and follow it as our guide.
Psalm 37:23-24 says, “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Therefore, though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.”
We all face difficult decisions at some point in our lives. We may not know what to do or which path to take. This is where we need to rely on God’s mercy and God’s Word. God’s mercy will help us navigate life’s difficult decisions. We may not know what to do or which path to take, but God will provide us with the guidance we need. We just need to be humble enough to ask for it.
God’s Word will also help us steer through life. It is a roadmap that will guide us on the right path. It will tell us what is right and wrong and help us make the right choices. So, when faced with a difficult decision, Trust in God’s mercy and follow God’s Word. They will help you make the right choice and get through anything life throws your way. Psalm 32:8 says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”
Psalm 25:4-5; “Make me know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you, I wait all day long.” Amen.
