A Snippet lesson from my journal

How I wish life were that simple. How I wish God’s plans were easy to decipher – like there was some headrest screen in front of me that could give me instantaneous information on my location, speed, altitude, outside and destination temperature, distance travelled, time left to destination, time at destination and estimated time of arrival.

That would be cool! Plus a graphic interactive of where I am exactly in life.

Hmmm… that is what airlines offer during flights. I could practically rest easy and count time. It was almost exact and accurate… give or take few minutes.

Come to think of it: Isn’t that what Psalm 32:8 and Psalm 1:6 say about God? He charts our life paths! He is precise. Exact. Greater than any GPS. He wants us to come to terms with that. And believe. Only then can we experience Him.

I kept checking the screen at every jerk, rumble and turn, just to make sure all was well. It was, really. The plane track was clearly drawn [nice graphic] and all I had to do was press buttons, see clearly and check often!

But…

Do I press heaven’s buttons in Prayer?

Do I see clearly in obedience?

Do I check often in the word?
