Is God nudging you today, letting you know it's time to change directions in your life? Is a u-turn essential so that you can make it to your assigned destiny? If so, this my friend is called a course correction.
Often times it isn't super apparent that God is attempting to turn things around. Similar to when you're lost in your car trying to get to your specified location. Of course these days we have Google maps, Siri, & GPS systems to help us navigate. But think of it this way, God is our
spiritual GPS (God provides signs) how cool is that? He definitely will let you know when you're lost or outside of his will. Check this out.
The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and he delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the Lord is the one who holds his hand.
We've definitely got to be more flexible with allowing God to change the trajectory of our lives in a moments notice. Remember the fishermen? He told them to drop their nets & follow him so he could teach them to be fishers of men.
And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
It was just that simple, no questions asked. I know many of us including myself would want to get our affairs in order. We'd be like, "come on God I worked really hard to get this position & I love the city I'm in. I've finally settled in & it's time to move already?"
I don't necessarily think its a good idea to question God's authority. But at the end of the day we're all human & this is just what we do. Honestly speaking though, I'm sure God knows what's best for us considering the fact that he created us. Im just saying.
For I know the plans i have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you & not harm you. Plans to give you hope & a future.
The thing that really trips me out about God is that often times he may want us to go left but if we keep insisting that right is the direction to go he'll allow it. And he'll sit back & watch us make complete fools of ourselves only to redirect us back to his original planned destiny. This by the way is called God's permissible will.
It just simply means that God allows it, although it wasn't his plan. Trust me you always end up where he wanted you in the first place. You can't escape God's Providence. So you either do it his way from the start or deal with the agony that comes with disobedience. Go figure.
Trusting God is key to course correction. Obviously something is off & God is trying to get your life back on track. You've just got to listen to your GPS and make the right moves. He gives us these amazing things called wisdom & discernment for this very reason. You've got to keep your spiritual ears fine tuned by staying in his word. And also be consistent with prayer time, just so you stay connected.
Who knows what you're capable of once you're actually headed in the right direction? Maybe you'll shake up the world, for the sake of the kingdom!! But remember it's all for his glory & honor just keep that in mind. But the really cool thing is that once you've done your great work here on earth & you make it to your final destination, Heaven that is. You'll hear these marvelous words "well done thy good & faithful servant now come unto me". NOW THAT DESERVES A BOOM!!
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
