Guided Paths

Have you ever taken a road trip that required using a map? I remember traveling along a major interstate in Florida, perhaps 15 years ago. The highway was congested and at some points traffic was detoured due to ongoing road construction. No matter where I was trying to go, that interstate was one of the main thoroughfares, so avoiding the utility of it at any point in my trip was nearly impossible. What made the tedious road trip bearable was my handy dandy road map. This map would show me other routes, requiring me to travel through small towns. As I studied the map and plotted out my newly formed route, I thought to myself that this was surely the best kept secret to getting to back home.

Psalms 119:105 says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” The Word of God is just like that handy dandy road map that I used many years ago. The more you read it, the more other routes will be shown to you.  It not only reveals direction, but it also exposes traps and roadblocks that want to delay or terminate your arrival.

My road map proved its purpose in not only getting me home, but also revealed to me that the route highlighted had been heavily used by travelers looking to avoid detour and arrive to their next destination as well. My friend, you are in good company and on a guided path when you use God’s word for direction in all aspects of your life. Safe Travels!

Small Package, Big Blessing

Sometimes our biggest moments of blessing and happiness are found in the places that we’d least expect them to be.  Too often, we find that either we have become somewhat complacent OR forget how valuable they are. The Prophet Elisha found this to be true when he was battling bouts of depression and self-defeat while fleeing Jezebel. Sitting in a cave of dissatisfaction and fear, the Father spoke to Elisha telling him to stand at the top of the mountain. After the passing of a strong wind, an earthquake, and fire, God was not found in any of those places. Elijah’s God encounter was found in a gentle whisper—an unexpected place. It was there where his breakthrough was discovered, and Elijah was able to get up and continue on. At the moment when it feels that it’s just not worth the push anymore, is when you should look for the gentle whisper.  At the moment when what you are dealing with seems to be just too much, is when you should look beyond the activities. What you may be battling right now is soon to become a battle no more.  Stand up in the power of the Almighty and position your mind and spirit for joy to be restored; struggle to cease; and strength to be renewed. You’ve been looking for God, this time, to show up BIG in the wrong places. My friend, your biggest moment of breakthrough is coming in the place that you’d least expect.

Choose Life

Each day we find ourselves being presented with situations that require decisions to be made. A fear-based view of them and its sometimes over-powering, negative influence will often attempt to guide our actions towards the wrong direction. But with a little bit of wisdom and a lot of help from the Father above, the outcome of any situation will always work itself out for the best. How do we know this? The Father always put before us the outcomes of the good and the bad and leaves it to us to decide. All the tempting options of our flesh that we tend to lay out from these pending situations may appear to work and seem right to take. We must rely heavily on the truth that God the Father has a better way. As we choose Him, we are choosing everything that is right. Everything that is right means having a better quality of life. A better quality of life equates to you being blessed.  Not only will you have the blessing upon you, but those that are coming after you will be blessed as well. It’s when we lean to our own understanding and the choices and lies of evil, that we reap devastation and fatal outcomes. So, which side of the coin are you going to take?
