While traveling recently I was listening to my GPS as I was attempting to make my way to my destination, unclear of where it was taking me but trusting that it would help me find my way. It came to me that if I were to really trust God, “GPS Style“. . . listening to His voice and direction at every turn along the way, I would reach the destinations He planned for me with far fewer detours. Often I find myself in struggles that occurred simply because I failed to hear His voice speaking to me above the noise of the world. In those moments I find myself facing u-turns that I could have avoided had I paused long enough to hear His still small voice speaking to me.
“And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” I Kings 19:12
So often I get caught up in the big things expecting to hear God speak but it’s in the quiet that I am able to hear God’s voice. In those times when I take time to get away from the things of this world and recognize Him in the quiet stillness of His word that’s when I find Him.
“But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29
When I set my eyes upon Him, seeking His face among the tumult and chaos of this world I will find Him the rock of my existence.
“For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.” Psalms 31:3
When I seek Him looking for direction of my life He will guide me. When I turn over the wheel and allow Him to direct me, I always end up exactly where I was meant to go. When I truly trust Him “GPS Style, One Turn at a Time” I always reach my destination.
“In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:6
