“You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3
I am directionally challenged. In fact, my family insists that I will go the exact opposite direction that is required, if given a choice. When leaving an elevator, I will turn nine times out of ten the wrong way, even when I try to think about focusing on going the opposite way as I first came. I learned as a young driver to stop at the nearest gas station to ask for directions before I drove too far in the wrong direction. If I knew I was lost and didn’t ask for directions, I would drive faster in a frantic panic and make matters worse for myself. What a horrible feeling to be lost and not know which way leads to home.
What a gift my GPS is! My children cheered and jumped up and down when I first received one on a long past Christmas morning. If I now go off track, my GPS reminds me to just “recalculate” and eventually I will get back on the right road.
My favorite part of all is to push the button “Home” and I can have peace that eventually I will arrive at my favorite destination.
What about you my sweet sister or brother? Do you have a spiritual GPS? A God Positioning System? Have you pushed the “Home” button and now have God’s peace that no matter the detour that you will reach your heavenly home?
Today’s point is Ponder is “Living on Purpose is the path to Peace.”
Sit in quiet and ponder what direction you are driving in and what kind of fuel is driving you. How do you spend the majority of your Free time? Who are the people who have the most influence on you? Are you asking for and receiving the help of the holy spirit to guide you?
No matter how far you have driven off the “narrow path” to Heaven, at anytime you can “recalculate” and ask God for Help to direct you back to Home.
