Sure Footing

If you were lost in a deep-wooded black forest, youíd be immensely grateful to find a compass in your backpack. Chances are, you would not ignore its guidance. Following your own intuitions about which direction was north would surely fail and misguide you like my GPS does sometimes----itís always Ďre-calculatingí and sadly, Iíve missed another appointment. Ugh!

Now, I donít know about you, but Iíve become dependent upon the latest technology and tend to think itís 100% correct. But, alas, anything made by man is sure to have a few flaws or bugs to work out. Donít you think?

However, mankind has itsí genius moments just the same. Take for instance the early form of compasses. Rather, lodestones (mineral rocks) that possess a magnetic force giving true-north direction. Having distinct polarity, these magnetic entities point the way. For instance, the first seafarers were in big trouble if they didnít rely on these forms of directional gadgets.

Just as we need physical direction in our lives we also need spiritual leading. Like a compass, Scripture provides sure footing for the Christian life. Which brings me to one of my favorite passages ďTrust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not upon your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your pathsĒ (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Those verses cover a lot of territory---urging us to come to the One who created us for the wisdom we so desperately need. In this life, tests and trials come in all sizes (some extra-large, XXL, XXXL). God has the right plan for each and every life. The question is, will we follow Godís GPS system for our lives.

Spiritually, the fastest and most direct route to the heart of Father God is obedience. C.S. Lewis once wrote, and Iím paraphrasing, Ďnever calculate without Godí. I buy that.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
