After many years of faith and a walk with God I’m learning that God’s will isn’t a path clearly marked out for years to come, but instead it’s guidance for the moment.
God’s will and direction for life are much like a GPS.
“In .3 miles turn left…” The directions of the GPS are as you need them.
Walking with God is much like that. It’s not a course revealed for the next 40 years, but a walk of steps and turns and moments. Each day is a new day of walking with God and finding his will for you in the moments, in the encounters of your life. The course, as it looks to you, might go around in circles for a bit, but God has a plan and it’s only revealed as we come to each turn in our course.
We are in Hawaii for a couple weeks and although I have never been here before we have found our way around easily with the help of our GPS. We don’t need to know the route, we simply need to obey the prompts of the sweet voice on the GPS and soon we arrive at our destination. God’s Spirit works in that same way as we walk with him through the day. We may not know all the turns and twists in our route, but simply need to trust the guidance we receive as we walk with God through the moments. Walking with God is a fascinating adventure. You never know who you will meet, where you will go, but it’s never boring.
