“But no, my people wouldn’t listen. Israel did not want me around. So I let them follow their own stubborn desires, living according to their own ideas.” (Psalm 81: 11-12, NLT)

Ever make a wrong turn? You are following your GPS, but something goes wrong.

A wrong turn on the highway is frustrating but not nearly as hard to correct as veering off God’s path for your life. He stands ready to guide and support you, much like the GPS that you yell at, then turn off, setting it aside to follow your own ways, which leads you into an even worse mess.

You will most likely err now and then. When you do, just be quick to ask God to get you back on the right track. Then listen to Him, submit to His wisdom, even if you don’t see the logic in it. Because you do not want to be left to your own devices.

Prayer: God, keep me on Your path for my life. Teach me patience to follow Your ways even when the end isn’t in sight. Amen.
