We’ve all heard jokes about men who refuse to stop and ask for directions. Growing up I would constantly hear my mom say “Just stop and ask for directions”, but to no avail and we would waste lots of time taking the wrong turns or getting lost. In reality, there’s probably a good bit of truth to this stereotype, and it isn’t limited to males. In today’s world, both men and women in this world are constantly traveling along in life, taking wrong turns and getting lost over and over again without slowing down to ask God for direction.

You see, the truth is most of us have our own agenda. Many of us have in our own mind what our goals are without ever asking God what His goals for our lives are.


Whether we are trying to impress our parents, family, spouse, co-workers or just society in general which tells us we need to have certain “status symbols” to be considered successful. Or we have some thought in our head that we will be happy when we reach a certain goal. The truth is, unless God has given us that goal once we reach it we will not fine happiness and we will need another goal to take that accomplishment’s place.
God does not want us to travel aimlessly making wrong turns in our lives. He wants to give us clear directions and a map to go forward with. To put it in today’s terms, He wants to be our spiritual GPS.
Proverbs 3:5-6, is my favorite Scripture, it says, “Trust in The Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” So today, if you are tired of going in circles, if you feel like you have been wasting time making wrong turns or if you just need clear direction, go to The Source, and ask him to direct your path.
