It’s true…sometimes your GPS gets it wrong. Whether due to an outdated map or the recent relocation of a business, I’ve had many times where I’ve heard that small voice echo: arriving at destination on the right – only to find that my destination was nowhere in sight, and what then? There’s a certain degree of disorientation that comes from suddenly realizing you have been headed in the wrong direction, or thinking you have reached the end of your journey only to find you have several more miles to go.
The same holds true on the road of life. We get a dream in our heart that we know is going to come to pass. We ponder on it, we pray about it, but when we finally decide to boldly go forth in that direction…it turns out to be the wrong turn. This usually leads to feelings of disappointment and despair because when we lose our way, we think God has lost our way, but this is not true.
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God…”-Isaiah 43:2
Uncertain paths are a part of life. Roads we think will lead us to our destiny often turn out to be dead ends. The people we counted on to accompany us on our journey turn back and leave, and suddenly we find ourselves traveling alone-but unlike the GPS in your car that offers no further guidance after the point of arrival, God steps in and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, redirects our lives like only He can.
“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust” – Psalm 91:2
Turning back from the path you had originally planned is not always easy. Sometimes it can be downright painful, but God in his infinite wisdom will allow you to shed a few tears for a moment in order to save you heartache for a lifetime. You have to trust that he will lead you out of the darkness and into his marvelous light!
Feeling Lost in Your Current Direction?
Our Heavenly Father is the ultimate Global Positioning System – No matter where you are on the globe, or what you may be dealing with, God is more than able to get your life back on track – because he not only sees us but he sees those things inside of us that even we have yet to realize; and when you allow him, he will guide your life in such a way that eventually you too will hear that small voice on the inside say…Arriving at divine destination on the right. Keep the Faith!
