One of the most frustrating parts to driving somewhere is getting lost. Historically, men has been given a bad name (and we deserve it) for being too proud to stop and ask for directions when we get lost. I remember one vacation we took to Washington, DC. As we were leaving the airport, I was given a “shortcut” that would get us to the city much quicker. Well, a few hours later, I finally stopped and asked for help. The kind lady at the gas station laughed and said, “dear, you are going in the complete opposite direction!” The next day, I went and bought a GPS system. Getting lost can waste time, cause frustration and force us to miss out on things in life. So much of this could be avoided if we would just ask for directions. Well, the same can be said for our spiritual lives.
In Jeremiah 42:2-3 we read, “2 and said to Jeremiah the prophet, “Please, let our petition be acceptable to you, and pray for us to the Lord your God, for all this remnant (since we are left but a few of many, as you can see), 3 that the Lord your God may show us the way in which we should walk and the thing we should do.” We need to seek “directions” for our Lord on a continual basis so that He will show us “the way in which we should walk and the thing we should do”. Too often, we get ourselves in trouble because we do not “ask for directions”.
Remember each day to ask for directions from God’s “GPS – God’s Protection Service”. The Bible promises that He will lead us, guide us and protect us. All we have to do is go to Him in prayer and “ask for directions”.
I pray blessings today for you on your Journey!
