"The LORD says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you."
The above Bible passage is God's navigational system! It's the best one around because not only will He tell you where to go and how to get there, He will also keep an eye on you in the process. Is there anybody else around that can do that?
Things are pretty scary in the world we're living in right now. Nothing is certain and things keep changing but not for the better. People are dropping off the face of the earth for various reasons and suddenly, at that. People want answers, justice for hate crimes and someone to be held accountable for the heinous acts that roam our subways, streets and schools. We're on our way to crashing and burning!
What navigational system have you been using? Who's giving you direction for the path you're on? Is it a path with hope for a better tomorrow? Who can you turn to - to answer all the questions you need answering? Are you feeling the pressures of life? Are you riddled with fear?
I ask these questions because everything going on around us has been threatening. The constant deaths of the rich and the poor, the random attacks due to racism and hatred have left mankind at a loss for words. People are asking questions. People are saying that this world is coming to an end. Everyone has their take on it all.
I encourage you to get hooked into God's GPS! The offer will not last forever for it will soon be off the table. There is a time limit on God's reaching out to man. Harden not your heart! God has done everything to make life easier, better and satisfying for you, but you must accept His only Son, Jesus Christ into your heart as your Savior. He is the answer for the world today. Above Him there's no other for Jesus is the way!
We rely on our car's GPS to get us where we need to go. We put the destination in, and it calculates how to get there, how long it will take and the best highways and roads that will get us there. God is so much greater than this world's Global Positioning System because this type of system has been created by humans for humans. God's GPS navigates beyond this life, beyond satellites, beyond human calculations and beyond technology. God is a supreme being who created man and all of creation. He knows the way and how to get us to the best place possible!
I decided long ago to get on board with God's navigational system and as a result I have a guaranteed assurance of life after death, should I die. He has secured me a place in Heaven and while I'm still on earth, He takes care of everything I need and will ever need. I'm so glad I'm saved!
Think about what I'm saying and don't let this offer run out for you. Cash in on it while you still have the chance!
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Everywhere we turn there's another idea, another show, or movie to entertain ourselves with, or a new dress put on the same old thing. The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 1:9 "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun."
Haven't you noticed that the style of clothing from the 70's are back in the stores today with a fresh color palette, made from much cheaper fabrics, yet the same thing that was worn over 30 years ago? Nothing ever goes out of style!
Man has reached his ceiling of creating something entirely new. Technology is becoming more and more advanced, but that too has a ceiling. We will see new gadgets and technological toys offering a service like never before, but in all actuality, it's recycling the same stuff as before just packaged differently with new bait that entices us to spend more money for it. God has placed limitations on man's intelligence. We see that clearly in the story of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9). God confused the language to keep man from thinking he could do anything!
The Bible tells us that "Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). While the 'World' keeps presenting new things for people to try, they never seem to find peace and joy in the midst of it. People are constantly searching for a sense of belonging, a sense of purpose and a sense of real contentment. Why is that? Why can't they dig their heels in and settle down with contentment in life? It's because this world is filled with emptiness. Nothing it offers will ever satisfy the deep longing of a person's soul.
There is a place within man's soul that has been designed solely for God. No matter how much we try to fill it with everything the world has to offer, we will never be fulfilled.
So, have you found what you've been looking for yet? Are you content with your life up to this point? Is life working out the way you need it to?
Jesus has everything you and I will ever need. Afterall, God created us, who better to know what it takes to make us complete and whole with happiness? He's the only one that knows exactly what you need for a purposeful life. It's yours for the asking. There's nothing you need to do in order to receive this blest life. God simply wants you to believe that His son, Jesus, is the Savior of the world, who died on that cross of Calvary for your sins, where he shed his own precious blood. He died that you might live and not be punished for your sins. He died in your place so that you would have a life filled with peace and joy with purpose and belonging because he loves you. He died that you might have a life that goes beyond this world, that reaches into heaven for all eternity. This eternal life can be yours by simply accepting the Lord Jesus into your heart because you recognize and acknowledge that you are a sinner and are in need of His salvation. Open your heart and ask him to forgive you of all your sins and to lead you into a better life.
You will find exactly what you're looking for in Christ Jesus. He keeps all of his promises, and the best is yet to come! May God help you to believe that.
