As I was driving down the road today, it occurred to me that there are a lot of signs and where would we be without them? Think about what we would do with no street signs or road signs. GPS wouldn’t matter. Road maps wouldn’t matter. How would we find where we are going with no directions? I grew up in a small town of about 300 people and you didn’t need street signs to find where you wanted to go, even though we did have street signs. If someone were visiting you just told them how many streets to go and to turn left or right. Today I live in a city of about 2,000,000 people with thousands of houses and streets. We have to have signs and directions to find where we want to go. If not we would just wonder around lost. Follow the GPS or what ever directions you have, and you’ll arrive at your destination.
What about where you work? Can you take and follow directions? If not, how do you get your work done? Even better, how do you keep your job? How about what your parents taught you? Did they not give you directions to follow so life would be easier and not so complicated? Things get crazy and all of a sudden you think to yourself, what did Mom and Dad do or say about this type of situation? Then you apply the directions given to you and all seems to be straightened out.
Now what about you Christian life? Are you just doing what you want? Struggling to find your way? Can’t find or follow directions? Wondering around lost as if you were in a big city with no street signs? The good news is that there are directions. The bad news is a lot of people are lost because they won’t follow them. God has given directions for any thing that can come up in life. All you have to do is open up your Bible and read/listen to the living, written word of God. No more wondering around lost. No more do you have to be without directions. No more will your life be in shambles. PRAISE GOD!! He has given us the street signs to give us directions for life.
SMILE God loves YOU!! Have a good week all.
