Jon bought a new GPS this weekend. (His old one fell off its mount one too many times.) It came with a tiny instruction pamphlet, so it’s geared for you to learn on the fly from the unit itself. It includes all the typical information- distance to destination and turn-by-turn directions. One of the features lets you know about accidents in time for you reroute and avoid getting stuck.
God left us a GPS system years ago. It features route calculation –
“This is the way, walk in it…” Isaiah 30:21
turn by turn directions,
Like – In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths… Proverbs 3:6
even helps you get back on track if you miss a turn.
I thought about my ways and turned my feet to Your testimonies. Psalm 119:59
It gives alerts for all sorts of dangers, and specific directions on how to avoid them.
Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil.
Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn away from it and pass on. Proverbs 4:14-15
It also works best if you just jump in and start using it.
O God, You are my God; early will I seek You. Psalm 63:1
As you study this week, watch for the “directions” God gives. (Go here… Do this… Don’t do this…) This morning I read John 4. Jesus instructs us to live busy. There is much work to do.
