Psalms 119 : 103 - 105, How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. NKJV
Ephesians 2 : 10, For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. NKJV
Many times in scripture the Lord told one of His servants that He had already gone before them to prepare the way they were to travel. He then gave them specific instructions to follow so that His divine will could be fulfilled, not only in that situation, but in His servant’s life.
In the New Testament, Jesus told His disciples that He would meet them in Galilee after His passion. He foretold His plans to them so that when the time came, they would know what to do and where to be in order to be reunited with Him. It was also a way of building the disciples’ faith... because they would see that all He had said had actually come to pass.
Did you know that God has a map/plan for our lives? He’s not trying to control us; nevertheless, He does want to be there for us to keep us from taking “wrong paths” as we navigate which path or consider choices in life. When we come to an intersection in life, it will demand that we decide which way to travel. Quite often we have to make decisions that will impact our life long term, such issues as relationships, business, finances, health, children, etc. Our decisions are generally based on a limited amount of information. Some decisions come with the promise of a brighter future, but there is no guarantee.
At this point, God, the Word, and His Spirit come into the picture. God already knows the end from the beginning; He knows what paths we should choose and the right decisions you and I should make in order to maximize our fullest potential in this life and assure that we will complete His purpose.
So the next time you come to a “crossroad,” and you need to make a decision, ask the Lord to lead the way. It will show the Lord that your faith and confidence are in Him and will allow Him to keep you safe on this journey called life. Just think of this as GPS (God's Positioning Satellite), guiding you along the right path for your life and family.
Use Caution Up Ahead,
