Truths from my Sat Nav – Part 1

satnavI have a very close friendship with my sat nav or my GPS, depending on where in the world you are reading this. We have been on countless journeys together. Each one I’ve had has had a different name – my first was named May after May McFetridge. A few other names are Molly and Sadie. My current sat nav is called Sally.

Anyway, the point of this blog is not to tell you the names of my sat navs but rather to tell you the truths I have learned from the journeys I have been on and the instructions I have been given. These have been hard lessons to learn and have meant that the journeys have been perhaps longer than they needed to be so I hope you read these following posts and learn from them so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes I have made.

* Add your destination

As useful as a sat nav is, it is of no use to us unless we have some sort of clue as to where we want to end up. We need to know where we intend to go before we can harness it’s power. All that technology is useless unless we know where we want our final destination to be.

Do you know where you want to go? Have you got a sense of your destiny? Even if you don’t know where it is or how to get there – the very least you need is a sense of the need to go somewhere – to not just be stuck in this same rut you have been in all your life.

You don’t have to stay where you are.

God has big plans for you. it is in this area that the Word of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit is far superior than a sat nav. When you dn’t know where you want to go you can go to God’s Word and He will speak to you and show you where He wants you to go. Then He shows you how to get there. As you are praying, the Holy Spirit places desires in your heart and then gives you the strength to fulfil those desires. So if you don’t know where you want to go get into His presence, seek His heart and He wont be long in planting a sense of destiny within you.
