I know we have all likely had the pleasure, if that’s what you want to call it, of being griped at by our GPS for missing a turn or taking a wrong one. That obnoxious, “I’m smarter than you” voice makes me cringe sometimes.
On a much lighter note… the GPS has two basic ways of guiding you to your destination. You can listen to the British butler tell you where to go, or you can follow the signs and arrows that pop up on the screen, or a combination of the two.
It got me to thinking about how many of the people I know are always trying to figure out God’s plan for their life. Wouldn’t life just be easier if He gave us an audible, “Turn left ahead.”? But, as far as I can tell, that isn’t how it works for most people. At least not for me. I hear voices, but I’m pretty sure they’re not God’s. That is another topic for another blog.
The point is this. We still have another way of getting to the destination and purposes that He has for us. Just like the GPS, our life has signs and arrows that will lead us down the right path if we are attentive. Most of the time that comes in the form of a person, a conversation, or some unexplainable “coincidence”. Keep following those directional signs and you will get to where you are supposed to be. No need to recompute.
