Where Are You Setting Your Heart's GPS?

I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.
— Psalm 119:112

There is that "unto the end" again.

I have inclined my heart. My heart is set. 

We are not naturally obedient, inclined to keep God's statutes, His laws, and Words on our own. It takes a decision to give our hearts to Him and a determination to continue on in that decision. 

When you set a destination on your GPS and you follow it, unless something is faulty with the system, you will arrive at the destination you set. Not somewhere else entirely. Becuase you chose a point, set it, and stayed true to that course. 

Through daily prayer, Bible study, listening, and watching, we can set our heart's GPS on the things above, on the path that God has for us with the destination being a deeper relationship with Him. 

I am so thankful that God's faithfulness does not fluctuate with ours because we sometimes get off course. But just as a GPS can reroute when there is an obstacle in the way, we can decide to get back to the course God has for us. We can make the choice to give control to Him. He is a much better navigator than we are. 

He will not force our heart's direction, though, because that is not true love. Just as we can ignore what the GPS is speaking out, we can ignore God's calling on our lives.

But, don't do that friend. He has so much better waiting for you.

All we have to do is make God our set point. Incline our hearts to hear His call, obey His law, and wait to see what He will do. You will end up in a much better destination. Almighty God gurantees it.  


To Ponder:

Do I need to "incline my heart" back towards God? Am I trying to take over the driving when I need to move over and allow God to have control?

All it takes is a decision. Tell the Lord yours now. 


Prayer:

Father God, 

    At some point,  I started trying to navigate my life without giving You full control. I do not know why I thought I could navigate better than my Creator, the Creator of the whole universe. Forgive me. I give control back to You. I set my heart on Your Statues. And if I ever start to veer off course, remind me, remind me that You have everything handled and Your ways are better than my ways. 

"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9

Help me incline my heart to Your ways and Your thoughts always unto the end.

Amen
