Psalm 16:11 You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.
Have you ever been lost with someone who was stubborn and would not stop to get directions? I know this doesn’t happen as often as it used to due to all the map apps available on our phones today. If you are really young you may not have a clue what I am talking about when I say paper maps. There are many ways to get lost other than driving from one location to the other.
Maybe you have been lost on whether to stay at a job or to leave for another one. You could be lost on what to do in a current relationship, end it or keep going. There may be a large decision you need to make that could effect your family and you are lost on how to proceed. Just maybe, on a spiritual level you are lost as to what God wants you to do, where to attend church, whether to volunteer, go on a mission trip, lead a study or share Jesus with a friend or family member.
I have good news for you!! Psalm 16:11 tells us that we can stop and ask for directions. It is ok if we do, actually God loves it when we do. As a matter of fact, it is better for us.
In years past, when cell phones and apps were not readily available, you would have to read a paper map to get to a new location. It was easier to keep driving, even if you knew you were lost than to stop and ask someone for directions. It took time to stop, get out of the car, walk into a store, possibly wait in line to ask the attendant for clarity of how to get to where you were going and the embarrassment of appearing that you could not read a simple map. It is ironic that the time taken to drive around looking on your own, could have been saved simply by stopping and asking for help. You may have gotten there quicker had you stopped in the first place.
Whatever you are “LOST” about, turn to God today and ask for His help. As the scripture says, He will show you the way of LIFE. That means anything and everything you need, He will show you the way. You don’t have to go to bible study after bible study to read about your purpose. You don’t need a psychic to tell you what to do. There is no need to worry about it night and day. Stop right now and go to the Lord. Pray everyday until the Lord shows you the way. If you need help, post below your “LOST” and we will pray with you for God’s direction.
