GPS: God's Positioning System

"From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth"- Psalms 33:13-14

The Global Positioning System (GPS) has characterized and simplified the way we live.  It helps us get from place to place very easily, providing turn by turn navigation to sucessfully route us to our expected end. GPS was created by the US Department of Defense in 1973. It is composed of 24 satellites that circle the earth offering specific locations for people and places free of interferences such as weather and clouds. GPS does not operate on the same time table as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) which are the clocks that we use to tell time. This is because GPS does not match the rotation of the earth and does not take into account the events of the year such as leap year. The most dynamic thing about GPS is that as it rotates, it gets a view of the earth from a higher level. GPS satellites provide a full range view and can see a route from beginning to end. As a result it can offer great navigation through every terrain you might face along the path to your destination.
As fascinating as the global positioning system is, there is a greater GPS to consider: God's Positioning System. Psalms 33:13-14 says that God looks down from heaven on us, watching the events of our lives from a higher place. God's view provides us with the opportunity to trust his direction. The full range view of his purpose and plans maybe unknown to you. However in times of uncertainty you have an assurance that he sees the expected end from the very beginning. Just as the global positioning system does not operate on the same clock as we do, neither does God. His timing is always perfect and complete. 
In order for God's Positioning System to operate in your life, you must start by reading his word. The bible offers great insight into the ways of God providing direction, wisdom and a light for the dark pathway of life. As you begin to discover what God's word says, his direction will become clear. Life is uncertain and we all need direction in order to arrive at our expected end, depend on God's Positioning System to set you on the right path.
Prayer: God thank you for sending your word as my GPS. It is infallable light to the pathway of my life. Give me a heart to read and follow your direction step by step. Amen
