Built-In GPS

John 16

John 16

What did we ever do without GPS? Recently Britt and I went to visit my sister in South Carolina. We didn’t study a map. We didn’t plan out the trip. We just punched in the destination and trusted the GPS. In fact, there were even times that I said, “You know, this doesn’t look right… but, the GPS says to go this way, so… it must be right.” The GPS got us to my sister’s house safely AND at the exact moment it said it would. Amazing.

As Christians we have a built-in GPS of our own: The Holy Spirit. Jesus told the Apostles: “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you… But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.” John 16:7 & 13.

There is comfort in trusting that the GPS knows what its doing, isn’t there? It’s nice to have a reliable guide right there in the car with you. When you are looking for guidance in your spiritual journey, consult the Holy Spirit. He is there for Discernment, Guidance, and Comfort. Trust Him to get you where you need to go!

GPS stands for: Global Positioning Satellite/System. The Holy Spirit blows that out of the water! He is more than Global, He is Universal! He is Eternal. He is your Eternal Positioning System. But it doesn’t do much good to get the GPS out and then not use. It doesn’t do much good to ignore the GPS and go your own way!

Allow Him to Counsel you. Allow Him to Help you. He will get you safely where you need to go and at the exact moment you need to be there.

May God’s Love be with you
