“If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast” (Psalm 139:9 & 10 NIV).
you ever experienced a situation where you knew without a shadow of
doubt that you were absolutely right, only to find out that you were
absolutely wrong? Well let me tell you a story that will bring a sense
of relief and a chuckle to you, and perhaps also confirm deep down
inside of you that God is in control of your life, despite our
Well once again we were heading out east
to visit my mother in law. My husband was driving that day, and although
he knew this route like the back of his hand, he did in fact use a
fascinating instrument – his beloved navigation system. It was a long
drive that day and so when we finally approached a major city, we were
relieved to know that from this point on forward there was only about
another 190 Miles to go.
Ready to take these last miles on our journey,
we were puzzled that all of a sudden our navigation system recommended
us to take another route. Over and over again this voice would
persistently suggest us to take another exit and turn around. On top of
all this we were starting to gain miles instead of losing them.
husband was really getting annoyed at the navigation system for
misdirecting us. After all, he knew the way to get to our destination
better than anybody else. He told me to take a closer look at it and as I
observed the map on the screen I noticed that the arrow was pointing to
the west instead of the east. Another thing I discovered was that we
were approaching the state we had just left behind us. According to the
navigation system we were heading back home. Could it be that my husband
was in error? Yes! To his great amazement and disappointment, he took
the wrong highway.
It is a good thing to know that the
LORD is persistent with us. He truly never leaves us, nor does He
forsake us. Perhaps you might think you know it all and you know in what
direction you are heading, but trust me, He truly like no one else
knows the way. Remember, His ways and His thoughts are much higher than
ours. So don’t be so stubborn. Follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit
at all times and you will walk on solid ground with no detours. After
all, He is The Way.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
