In my car I have a GPS device. To be perfectly honest I only have a very general idea how it works. I know it picks up signals from a number of satellites and then coordinates the results to calculate where I am. All very clever stuff.
I may not understand it fully but I trust it. When I am going somewhere new I type in the address and a voice tells me where to turn and guides me to my destination.
There are times when something unexpected happens on my journey. There may be road works or an accident blocking the route. Not a problem to my GPS it simply re calculates a new route.
At times it gets cross with me (yes I know it is just a machine). This is when I miss a turning. It tells me to turn back or if I continue it calculates a new route.
If only I could hear the guiding voice of God as easily and clearly.
He knows exactly where I am. He knows the best route for my life. I want to be sensitive to His guidance. I want to trust His directions even when from my perspective they do not make sense.
