Back in the good old days, we used good old-fashioned maps to find our way. Today we get the fancy GPS on our smart phones. It can be quite unsettling to be completely turned around in an unfamiliar place.

I remember my friend, Fred Conklin.  He was driving us to a very important meeting in a home, with a high official of the state of California.  The GPS said “turn right,” but the road was closed for repairs.  We had to go around a mountain and back and it took 15 minutes.  We were late for our appointment.  We never forgot that. 

But God’s GPS never needs to recalculate.  God’s GPS is always correct.

And isn’t this true of life in general? We need God to sort out our life’s direction. We need His wisdom, eternal perspective, and sovereignty. We need His plan. And thank goodness He has one!

When we feel confused and turned around we can trust the promises of God’s Word that He knows exactly where we are headed. He will “direct your paths,” the book of Proverbs, chapter 3 says.

Do you have a friend who is wandering through life and seems lost? Share with them the biblical Good News Gospel and they may get back on track with God through Jesus Christ today.


“God’s GPS never needs to recalculate.  God’s GPS is always correct.”

Proverbs 3:6

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
