"Thus say The Lord: Stand by the roads and look: and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is: then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls."... Jeremiah 6:16 AMP
There's a flight plan in aviation. When a destination is established a flight plan is made. This is a detailed plan, in writing, that is held upon your lap - along with your map as you fly to you destination. It keeps you on course.
In the life of a child of God we have a map. It's called the Bible. And contains all the detailed information we need to reach our destination- heaven- safely.
Along this journey of life sometimes we just cruise along, enjoying the scenery. At times we journey through air space that is protected by an Air Traffic Controller and they help us navigate in areas where there might be a possibility of an accident. Much like the work of the Holy Spirit. He gives us detailed instructions when we must navigate treacherous areas.
Sometimes we might get off course, through distraction and mayhem but we always have Heavenly Father who can get us back on course- all we have to do is ask -and stick to the map.
Prayer: Dear Father, You tell us in Your Word that if we get off course and sin, You are faithful and just to forgive us our sins, if we ask. Lord I ask you to forgive me of my sins and get me back on course. In Jesus Name, Amen.
