I need landmarks. Tell me to turn left at the Shell Gas Station or go across the street from Walmart or turn right by the pink, flowered tree next to the fire hydrant. I'll get there if you'll tell me that.
But there is one thing I'm not directionally challenged on and that is meeting Jesus Christ. I can look up, I can fall to my knees. I can bow my head low or I can go prostrate on the ground. I can crawl to the foot of the cross and I don't need a landmark to get there. Do you? I hope not. Jesus has made it easy to get there whether you are directionally challenged or not.
Do you want a road map? God gave us one. It's called the Bible. And everything we need is in there.
I was questioning some things about a ministry that I am in and it wasn't until I went prostrate in my prayer closet, walked with Him at the bridge and opened my Bible that I received clarity, confirmation, the answer. It feels so good not to be lost. I am so thankful that God did not lay out the road map with road map directions. I think he knew before I was created in the womb that I would have problems. Thank you Lord for giving me directions that I can understand and follow.
Thank you for showing me the way to the cross. Thank you that when my time arrives to come home, that I will not need directions, I will not need to read a map, I will not have to worry about reservations and how to get to the airport or bus terminal.
Because I came to the cross, my destination is planned. All I'll need to do is look to you and I'll be there. If someone is reading this and you feel you need directions to the cross. . .here it is. . .you don't have to turn to the right or to the left or go so many miles in one direction or another. Just close your eyes and say with a sincere heart...Jesus. . .He will come to you and in your heart of hearts, the words will come and you will go from lost to found in an instant.
Thank you for making it easy for this directionally challenged daughter of yours. And for all the others who are looking for the way. . .may they see that it is right in front of them.
Thank you Father for being the compass.
