As my family and I have been busy exploring the new area which we have moved to, doing so has been much easier due to a GPS installed on my daughter’s phone. No matter where we are going, all she has to do is to enter the address of our destination and she receives step by step directions as we travel, to lead us right to where we want to go.

GPS, as a lot of you probably know, is short for Global Positioning System which is a satellite-based radio navigation system. Quite an amazing piece of technology that has made the world a much easier place to navigate, especially for those of us, like me, who seem to be directionally challenged, always going the wrong way and getting lost.

Finding our way to physical landmarks however is only one of the things we have to cope with in this life. Finding our way morally, ethically, and mentally are also required to navigate this life successfully. Fortunately for us, there is another GPS to enable us to achieve such success: Gods’ Piloting System which is a Holy Spirit based operation, installed on earth by God after the resurrection of Jesus Christ and His ascension into heaven. It is a GPS that is installed into each person’s inner most being when they commit their way to Christ, as Lord and Saviour. It is also a system that is able to work in the lives of all those within the world. Jesus told His disciples: “When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regards to sin and righteousness and judgment: in regards to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regards to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.” (John 16:8-11 NIV)

The Holy Spirit has been given to guide and direct us as to the best way to navigate this life as well as our relationship with God through Christ. He is the Spirit of truth, who will guide us in all truth for He speaks only what He hears from God. When we are open to listening for and to His voice our lives truly become God lead, directed and changed more and more into the likeness of Jesus Christ who navigated His earthly life with perfection.

Today each of us, God willing, will have to navigate our way through another 24 hours. How shall we achieve this? Through our own wisdom or by tuning into God’s Piloting System? A GPS designed to get us through this day in the most positive and productive way possible: His way.

Prayer: Father God thank You for Your Holy Spirit and His ability to guide us each and every day into all truth and wisdom. Open our hearts and ears to hear and receive His direction. In Christ’s name we ask. Amen.
