What's On My Mind: RE-ROUTING. . .RE-ROUTING
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:6)
These days, millions of drives recognize those words, re-routing. . .re-routing, or others like them, as a sign they've gone off track or missed a turn. The GPS device not only recognizes when a driver id off course, but immediately begins plotting a new path to get back on track.
Sometimes followers of Jesus need help to get back on track spiritually. We may intentionally veer off course because we think we know best, or drift away slowly, failing to notice we're moving further and further from the walk God wants with us.
God has not left us on our own, however. He has given all believers the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17; 1 Cor. 3:16), who convicts us of our sin (John 16:8,13). When we're going off course, He sounds the alarm and triggers our conscience (Gal. 5:16-25). We may ignore the warning, but we do so to our own detriment (Isa.63:10; Gal.6:8).
What comfort to know that God is at work in our lives through the convicting work of the Holy Spirit! (Rom. 8:26-27). With God's help and guidance, we can continue on a path that is pleasing to Him.
Holy Spirit, we would hear Your inner promptings, soft and clear; and help us know Your still, small voice so we may make God's will our choice.
WE'RE NEVER WITHOUT A HELPER, BECAUSE WE HAVE THE SPIRIT WITHIN.
