I think about my destination to heaven the way others think about their next vacation destination. What path do I need to take? Will the roads I travel be clear so I can see what I need to see. The Bible has all the answers. The Bible is my GPS to keep me on the right path.
Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. (Psalm 25:4 KJV)
With the word of God, I always want him to order my steps, but what’s just as important is I must obey where he tells me to go, even if I don’t understand it. I must trust Him and have faith.
There may be trials and tribulations similar to road construction we want to get around it quickly by taking shortcuts. The choice is yours, however remember what the word says I’m with you always, now that’s encouragement for your soul and you can make it through whatever may come your way. God may not take you around the dilemmas, issues, or pain but he is with us as we go through it.
If we think God’s path will not work, doubting his word and going off on our own we can probably expect a path of destruction that leads to sin. Let’s not be like the Israelites wondering in the wilderness and complaining. Listen to God and obey.
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. (Psalms 4:11 KJV)
We can try to delay taking the path that God has laid out for us, but the will of God will come to pass whether we decide to take the long way or a shortcut. I prefer to concentrate on the righteous way.
My Bible is the best GPS and it is always right, I just need to follow the directions in it.
Let me do a self-check to see if I’m following God’s directions exactly as spoken in the word of God:
I’m saved – Romans 10:9
My body is a temple and bought with a price – 1Cor.19-20
Exhibiting the Fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-23
Be ye Holy for I am holy – 1Peter 1:16
Walk by faith and not by sight – 2 Cor 5:7
Worship God in Spirit and in truth – John 4:24
His spirit dwells in me – 1 John 4:13
I’m believe I’m on the right path. And I will not give up. I’m going to trust in the creator of my path.
The Bible is our GPS to stay the course and follow the path. When we go on vacation, we are excited about getting to our destination whether it be a quick weekend getaway or the luxury of one or two weeks, once we get there, we are excited that we arrived and if someone is waiting on us, they are excited too. This is what I envision, if I stay on the path reading the word of God and applying it to my life one day I will get to heaven and rejoice and God will say Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant Come On In.
