Ah-h – modern inventions! What a blessing a GPS can be when you’re headed toward a planned destination. But, there’s an even better GPS that will guide you along life’s path more accurately that a Global Positioning System and that’s God’s Positioning System – His Holy Word!
A GPS is designed to let you know the best route to take when you’re on a trip but it’s conditional upon you doing what you’re told to do. And it’s the same thing with God’s GPS – His Word.
God has already designed His Word to answer every need you’ll ever have but it’s conditional upon you being obedient to what He said and doing it His way! Let’s look at some scriptures.
God will give you a clear path to follow:
Psalm 119:105 (KJV) 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 18:28 (KJV) 28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
God has provided salvation:
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV) 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
God has provided healing:
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
God has your back covered:
Isaiah 54:17a (KJV) 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.
Psalm 91:11 (KJV) 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Of course, there are so many more scriptures that show us the way of life via God’s GPS. However, His blessings and promises don’t fall on us like ripe cherries off a tree. We have our part, just as God has His part. He has already done His part by providing everything we’ll ever need to live a victorious life. Now our part is to line up with how He has set it up to work and comply.
Isaiah 1:19 (KJV) 19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Jeremiah 1:12 (AMP) 12 Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.
2 Chronicles 16:9a (KJV) 9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
Notice that God is always on the lookout to perform His Word but we have to do the confessing so that it gets into the earth and He can move on it.
Let me leave you with this scripture that shows God wanting to cause His Word that we speak to come to pass. This shows that if we follow His way of doing things, we’ll surely arrive at our destination!
Isaiah 55:11 (KJV) 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
In order for God’s Word to prosper, we have to speak it out. That’s why I say over and over to get into God’s Word and get His Word into you. That’s when you’ll see the manifestation of His Glory!
Psalm 119:130 (KJV) 130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
Psalm 36:9b (KJV) 9 … in thy light shall we see light.
Proverbs 3:23 (KJV) 23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
Proverbs 4:12 (KJV) 12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
