7.22.15 God's GPS
At times in our Christian walk we come to a juncture and we need to know the direction God has for us. At other times the road may be filled with obstacles, littered with pot holes, or tied up in “construction.” Just like David, we need to hear God’s advice and counsel. Here is the cool part; all we have to do is turn on our GPS (God’s Positioning System). He is our creator, our Father, and friend. God says in Psalm 32:8 “I will guide you and teach you the way you should go. I will give you good advice and watch over you.” He will never lead us down the wrong route or leave us when the road gets rough. Although we may not always understand why he steers us on a particular road, we can be confident that He knows how to get us safely to our final destination.
Now man’s definition of a GPS is that it is a Global Positioning System, but I believe that God’s system would be call a God Positioning Spirit. The Holy Spirit, working in your heart and life, and revealing the Word of God to you on a daily basis is what keeps you on track and headed for your final destination. If you are on your way to Heaven, then you must allow the Holy Spirit and the Word of God to guide and direct you. Let the Word tell you what road to take, where you need to make a course adjustment and whether the path that you are on is the right one or not. Then you have to let the voice of the Holy Spirit speak to your heart and mind and then listen to the directions. Every once in a while you will miss a turn, but God’s GPS will keep talking, keep re-routing your course, to get you back on track. He doesn’t want you to fail, and so the Holy Ghost will be constantly updating and correcting your course to make sure that you make it to your destination safely.
Satan has a way of interfering with God’s GPS and drawing you off to the side where you will face destruction. God’s ways are not the ways of man. He will lead us into paths of righteousness and holiness, never into paths of temptation. His desire is to see us victorious. God’s plan is to lead us all the way home, and when this life is over, our faith will be rewarded, and the reward will be worth everything we have had to face in this life.
Are you being guided by God’s GPS this morning? Are you on the right track to Heaven? Make sure that you are. Give your heart and life to Jesus Christ today and serve him all the days of your life.
So follow me down the Roman Road: Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:10, as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 5:8, But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus' death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus' resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus' death as the payment for our sins.
Romans 10:9, If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:13, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 5:1, Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 8:1, There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Have you made a decision for Christ because of what you have learned through the Romans Road to salvation?
Friends make the decision to follow Christ today before it's too late. We are not promised our next minute so why not choose Jesus.
God I come to you thinking you for your GPS and I think you for the Roman Road. If there's 1 person who reads this that hasn't come to know you as their Lord and Savior let today be the day. I think you for coming into my life so many years ago and You have been with me ever since. You never leave my side, if I need anything all I have to do is call upon your name and you hear my ever cry. God please be with my facebook family and friends and know that I love you. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
