photo (42)Have you ever driven in thick fog? This past week I traveled to Asheville, North Carolina to visit my niece and help her select a venue for her bridesmaid’s luncheon for her upcoming wedding.  I had a lovely time with her seeing where the wedding would take place and hearing all about her wedding plans.

On my drive back to Atlanta, I encountered thick, thick fog for about a four mile stretch. At times it was so foggy, I could hardly see the car in front of me. Not only was it foggy, but it was raining too. Fortunately, I had a GPS with me that showed me the direction the road was turning so I could remain safely on the path without running off the road or into trouble. I was so thankful to have that steady voice speaking to me as I navigated through the unknown.

As believers, we are blessed with our own GPS of sorts; it is the Holy Spirit.  He is the still small voice we hear guiding our steps and directing our path through life [1 Kings 19:11-12].  When we cannot see what is coming next down the pathway of life, we can rest assured He does and we can trust in the direction He gives us. Proverbs 3:5-6 says,

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Just as the GPS on my dashboard kept me from harm as I navigated a difficult path, the Holy Spirit will navigate us through life if we will allow Him to do so.

What does the path you’re traveling look like? Can you clearly see where to go and what to do? If not, there is One who can and it is His desire to lead the way.  How will you respond to the Voice directing you?
