Are you familiar with the OnStar system some cars have available now? There is a computerized chip in the car that can be tracked by satellite. If you have a problem, you press the OnStar button in your car and you are immediately connected to the voice of someone who can help you. They can send you help when you need it, they know exactly where you are located, they know exactly where you’ve been and they know where your destination is and how to get you there. It is a wonderful feature, because it isn’t only useful when you have a medical emergency or get lost. They can even unlock your car for you if you lock your keys in your car. All you have to do is place a call to OnStar and let them know your dilemma. One critical thing, however, is you have to activate OnStar in order for it to work. Your car may be wired for OnStar, however, you will not have the ability to use the service until you activate it.
We come equipped with something even better than OnStar. It is called Morning Star [Revelation 22:16]. We activate Morning Star when we accept Christ into our lives [Romans 10:9]. Once we establish a personal relationship with Christ, we have activated the Holy Spirit and have access to Him at all times [John 15:26; 16:7]. He will be the guiding voice that orders our steps and directs our path [Psalm 119:133]. He knows where we’ve been and where we are going and He will get us there and divert us from harm’s way [Jeremiah 29:11].
Just like OnStar, there is a cost to having access to the Morning Star, but it is well worth the investment. Have you activated the Morning Star in your life? If not, wouldn’t you like to today?
