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!
