Trust Jesus Not the GPS!

Before I left to go visit some family I had not seen in a long time. I got my GPS, off my cell phone and typed their address in. My GPS usually gives me two or three routs to choose from.

I was not in any hurry, so I chose the longest route which was a very straight path and I got to my destination without any trouble.

After visiting my family at the end of the day, I got my GPS again to select the route that I wanted to lead me home. It was late, dark, and I was ready to get home. So I chose the “fastest” route, even thought It was curvy and had lots of turns. As I was driving, I was not paying any attention to the GPS. I lost service to my cell phone, which means the GPS stopped working!

I pulled over, realizing I had passed my turn and had gone a few blocks to far. I was an hour away from home and had no clue how to get there…. I was freaking out, but not showing it for the sake of the kids in the back seat! So I prayed and asked God to have the GPS work and lead me home.

After I reset the GPS God had answered my prayer. He done what seemed impossible to the world. He made the GPS work, with no problems and no service, the rest of the way home.

Threw all this I had a few blessing. This incident got me thinking about my walk with God.

 

  •  Blessing 1… I realized, sometimes the devil will show me a road that seams “faster” to get to where I’m going, so  through that he can side tract me and make me stumble and fall in my walk with Jesus. Gods way may not be the easy/fastest way BUT it is the Right way.  Like Jesus, Him being crucified so we may be forgiven, was not the way Jesus wanted it to be and it was not the easy way! And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. (Matthew 26:39)
  • Blessing 2… when I go down the wrong road, that leads me farther away from God, I can pray and ask God for forgiveness and for Him to lead down the road he wants me to go (the right road). He will be right there beside me to pick me up and help me change my ways. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:6)
  • Blessing 3… I realized, I am to trust and follow Jesus Christ to lead me where I am supposed to be in my walk with him and where I am wanting to go (Heaven), just like I do with the GPS. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and  lean not unto thine own understanding. (proverbs 3:5)

Did God speak to you threw my story? Is he Trying to get your attention? Have you fallen away from Him? Don’t worry, He is forgiving, He will take your hand and lead you, you just have to give Him your WHOLE heart and have Him lead you. There is a key to this! Shockingly it is not only praying, It is reading His Word, (The Bible) I prefer KJV! His word will save you and teach you!

You say you cant understand! Just keep reading!!!!! Don’t give up!!!!! Read and highlight what you do understand, I bet you will be surprised at how much you will understand! If you don’t understand a verse, read it twice, if you still don’t understand, Go on that’s probably just not what God want’s you to understand YET! Remember DONT GIVE UP!!! ( If Jesus gave up on the cross, We would not be able to be saved!)
