Have you ever been to NYC and decided to walk down 5th Avenue. You are walking North towards the hundreds of people walking South. I know that if you have experienced this, you at times have wanted to tell someone to get out of your way. Come now, admit it!
Okay, so you are driving and on the highway and someone in front of you is driving 30 mph. You have had enough and you shout at the steering wheel because you want the car in front of you to get out of the way.
Well, did you know that you can get in your own way. Of course, you have plans for your life and some of us have these plans etched in our souls. However, there are some plans that just don't fit with what God has planned for you. He is going North and you want to go South because that is what you have planned for your entire life.
You continue your journey South and then decide to go West But God has told you to go North-East. You begin to notice that the road you have taken has detours, roadblocks and traffic backed up for miles. You become frustrated and annoyed because it is now taking you longer to reach that place in your life and now you have an attitude with God. Imagine that!
Surprised! Not me. God says in Jeremiah 29: 11 - For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Get Out of the Way! Listen to what God has to say and stop following your own directions. He has your road map perfected and he is the GPS for your life. You have free will and of course you can go in any direction you choose. But, don't blame God when you start driving in that direction and your tank runs of out of gas in the middle of "Nowhere".
Get Out of the Way and let God navigate! It's not hard, just follow and he will Lead!
Meditate on that!
