08 Oct The Thursday Devotional: Using God’s GPS
There are many interesting stories about people who followed a GPS and ended up in some pretty strange places.
🎯The Global Positioning System (GPS) tells you where you are on Earth, and it is now widely used to provide direction.
🎯When the Israelites left Egypt, their GPS system was very simple: they moved when the Lord told them to move, and they went where the Lord told them to go.
🎯Today, that happens for only a few people but God still directs us through His Word.
🎯It’s our GPS system, so to speak, confirmed to us by the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
🎯We can find everything we need to know about God and about life in the pages of the Bible.
🎯God has laid out His parameters for our own protection, for our own good.
🎯And as we get older, we start seeing the repercussions of the decisions people made when they were younger.
🎯Solomon, the king of Israel, was renowned for his wisdom.
🎯With his unlimited resources, he decided to see for himself everything this world had to offer.
🎯Eventually, he came to this conclusion: “Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty”
🎯It comes down to this: God’s way is the right way.
