God’s Positioning System

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Psalm 119:17-24 (TNIV) – “Be good to your servant while I live, that I may obey your word. Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.

I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me. My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times. You rebuke the arrogant, who are accursed, those who stray from your commands. Remove from me scorn and contempt, for I keep your statutes.

Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees. Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.”

Have you ever felt lost?  Ever feel the uncertainty about the direction you are heading in?  Life always seems to have those hills, valleys, and unexpected twists.  It’s tough when we are faced with difficult circumstances and emergency situations that cause us to lose our bearing.  The psalm above reminds us that the Word is a GPS (God’s Positioning System) to help point us in the right direction.  Similar to a global positioning system, the Word of God helps us to understand where we are and the directions we should take to keep us on the right path.  As we meditate on God’s ways, we remain close to God instead of following the ways of this world that lead us further from Him.

Responding to the transmitted message:  As we live in this world, we will face uncertainty and opposition.  Let us pray for our churches, campuses, and missional groups to continue on the right path by following the guidance that we receive from studying, praying and meditating on God’s Word.  Utilize your GPS and be found in His presence!
