One thing I have learned since building my house in the country. If you use GPS you can never get there. You end up deeper in the country, about four miles from my house, without directions on how to get to the real address. That is both interesting and distressing to me. For one thing, If i needed some kind of medical help or fire response, and they use GPS, they will be deceived into going someplace else. And interesting in that GPS is supposed to be positioning from the sky, in a satellite, that should be able to tell us exactly where we are, yet in some cases, can not. This brings to mind the very things we tend to follow for directions in this world. We follow leaders, signs, directions from another, social media, and we trust those directions for the most part, but how do we know that the giver of the information is being honest. How do we know there is not deceit in the directions given. We know that Spiritual things are spiritually discerned and that man chooses mostly to follow the things of the world, things that his own mind comes up with. One of the problems with social media is that we honestly don't know what truth is and isn't, yet it's about what we believe. I would like to remind all of us of something that the Apostle Paul told his young protege. It is this: "Evil people and impostors will become worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed. You know those who taught you, and you know that from childhood you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are able to give you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:13-17 If you want to live the truth, and don't want to be deceived, Let's make sure that everything we read, and before decisions are made, pass it to God through prayer, and against Scripture, so that you can stay continued in what you learned and firmly believe.
Lord, I pray for each believer, that has their faith in You, that you will guide us all to the right direction, the right decisions, and the right source - Your Word, for all the answers to life. Lord may I lift to You: Pam for healing, Kim for healing, Rheba, Harriet, Ada, Carolyn, Mike S., for comfort, JT for answers from You, and may Your Word be what lead us homeward, for I ask it in Jesus name.
