Stay the Course

Divider
Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left.

Joshua 1:7


I confess that I’m directionally challenged. If it weren’t for a GPS in my car, I’d probably still be lost somewhere trying to find my destination. I’m great at following directions that are clear and simple. However, if someone begins with simple directions and then complicates it with extra things to know and look for—my mind goes blank. Keep it simple and I can find my way.

In the same way, God keeps our life paths simple. Yet, because of our weaknesses in the flesh, we can get off course and find ourselves lost in a murky mess. His GPS leads us in the right direction so that we have successful lives. How do we stay the course that God has commanded us to follow?

G – Get into God’s word every single day. (Psalm 119:44)
A regular pattern of reading scripture every day will help us stay the right course. It can’t be underestimated how much direction of God’s will for our lives is in the Bible. The Holy Spirit will bring back to our remembrance His word when we are getting off track.

P – Pray in continual conversation with God all throughout our day. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Many times we lose our way because we aren’t talking to God about our plans. We are basing major decisions off of conversations with people and what they expect from us. Yet, God is the One who knows all our ways both coming and going.

S – Seek out His purposes and plans for our life in every opportunity. (Proverbs 19:21)
As believers, our lives aren’t meant to be humdrum and boring. Instead, we are building God’s kingdom with steps of faith and the pursuit of knowing Him better. His plans and purposes will bring us peace in the journey even if we don’t always know the way.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I only want to go the pathway that You’ve designed for me. Help me to stay on Your GPS journey that results in Your glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
