Life Direction

🔊Audio Version Here ☞

Jer 10:23 (TLB)
23 O Lord, I know it is not within the power of man to map his life and plan his course-

Joe was once scheduled to have a meeting with Daniel in Abuja. The meeting was to take place in a hotel and Daniel had sent the address to Joe. Now Joe didn’t live in Abuja and the address Daniel sent was not so comprehensive. Joe followed the address to a point but couldn’t go any further so he employed the use of the Google Maps app on his phone. Before long, with the aid of the app, he arrived at the hotel in time for the meeting. This was made possible because of GPS (Global Positioning System) technology.

In the matters of life and destiny, no such app exists to give man direction. There exists only the Divine Positioning System. The Bible reveals to us that man is not designed with the ability to map his own life and plan his course. That ability is in the exclusive preserve of God, for man was never designed to live (meaningfully) without God.

That every road leads somewhere doesn’t at all imply that every road can lead to our destination. Regardless of the ‘I am the captain of my soul’ philosophy which reigns in the world, the Bible teaches otherwise. It reveals that our days have been written in God’s book even before we were born (See Psalms 139:16), that He ordains our life-purpose even before we were born (See Jeremiah 1:5). God has the big picture of life; our life and that of the whole world, He has the full picture. Past, present, and future are spread out before Him like a curtain.

God alone has the full picture, He only has infinite wisdom. A man can go his own and arrive somewhere, but remember, ‘there is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death’ (Prov 14:12).

Make up your mind today to trust only in God’s wisdom.
