A Word every day to get you on your way!
Here is the Daily Dose for Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come. Jeremiah 33:3
I am sometimes amazed at how far we have come technologically in the world. I am old enough to remember when my dad used road maps to get us across the country. He would have several of them for each state that we would travel through so that we would know how to get from place to place. By the time I was driving the internet was available, and I would print out MapQuest directions for trips. MapQuest was better than a folding map because it allowed you to put in your address and the address to your destination and it would give you turn by turn directions to print out and follow to where you were going. After MapQuest, I got my first GPS. GPS was amazing. You didn’t have to print anything or need any paper. With a GPS system you could punch in your destination and the system would along the way tell you how to get where you were going. It was like MapQuest without paper. But now I don’t use any of those things, I use Waze.
Waze is the ultimate in direction applications. What makes Waze so awesome is Waze is not just directions it is directions with inside information. Waze is a crowdsourced application. This means the basic applications gives you directions like a GPS but Waze adds a unique wrinkle that makes it better. The people that use Waze report into the system where there are traffic jams, road construction and most importantly where there are traffic cameras and police. Having all of this inside information allows you to get from place to place using Waze that much faster because you don’t just know where you are going and how to get there, you also have all of the inside information about the route that allows you to get there faster and safer because of all that you know.
Friends, in life, a relationship with the Lord is like having a Waze system for your life. You may know where you want to go, but the Lord has the inside information to get you there faster and safer than you could on your own. When we have a relationship with the Lord, he can tell you where the pitfalls, valleys, traps, and problems are before you get there so that you are prepared or can go around them. So stay close, and listen well, the Lord has some inside information for you.
