Anyone who knows me, knows I am really challenged with directions. I have no natural sense as to which way is up or down (north or south). Before navigational apps, I called my husband to help me when I found myself in a place other than where I should have been.
The navigational app on your phone gives you a clear picture of where you’re going, and I’m very thankful for it.
Have you ever considered how prayer can serve as a spiritual navigational app for life. Spending time with God in prayer opens your heart to receive the route wants you to take.
The things you do each day can often have a ripple effect in your life. You make a lot of decisions every day. Some of them are little—like what to have for lunch, when to do your homework, or what games to play and with whom. But sometimes your decisions—good or bad—define consequences tonight, tomorrow, and for the rest of your life. I’ve found it’s important to be in the right place at the right time in order to serve Him and fulfill His purpose for for my life.
You can be sure God hears you when you pray. Sometimes the answer doesn’t come right away, but He is at work behind the scenes bringing answers you need so you know where to go or what action to take. In Daniel 9, Daniel wondered why God had not answered his prayer for many days. When God finally responded, he said, When you first started praying, an answer was given, and I came to tell you, because God loves you very much. So think about the message and understand the vision (Daniel 9:23 NCV).
Prayer can guide you toward the right decisions that keep you on the right course for your life. Choose to spend time in prayer every day.
