GPS..... God Please Save Me. There are so many times in my life when I am struggling with problems or wants and all I see is MY wants or desires. The vision that is before my eyes is what MY mind has created, not what God wants to create in my life. I continue to follow that picture, just like my GPS, and I end up lost or confused. GPS......... God Please Save me.
If I had just taken the time to stop. If I had just taken the time to focus on God instead of myself. But unfortunately at that moment I felt like I knew better. The I in my life was a stronger desire then God. I was not allowing God to direct me. I thought I knew the direction myself. The right decisions, the right choice, not needing to listen to God's quiet voice.
GPS........God Please Save me. I look at my GPS a little differently these days. I consider it a reminder of where my attentions should be. Instead of relying on myself or the world to direct my path I rely upon my Father. I use the five steps to hear His voice. I ask, pray, read, pray, and follow. Ask...... if there is a decision to be made or a question of what to do I ask my Father first. I have a conversation with Him, pray. I study His word for direction. And again, I have a conversation with Him, pray. And lastly, I obediently follow. There are times when God leads me to seek Biblical council, and when there are important decisions in my life I always seek council from my husband. But for the most part I first follow these five steps first the follow God's lead. Is this easy? nope! But what I can tell you is you won't get lost.
The next time you climb in your car and punch in an address to your GPS, decide what it stands for in your life. Who are you following? Is it the world, global position satellite, or is it God, God Please Save me?
