But you must be strong and brave about obeying the commands my servant Moses gave you. If you follow his teachings exactly, you will be successful in everything you do. Always remember what is written in that book of law. Speak about that book and study it day and night. Then you can be sure to obey what is written there. If you do this, you will be wise and successful in everything you do. Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Anyone that knows me will tell you I am directionally challenged. So, if you want me to follow your directions, make sure you are specific. Give landmarks as well as street names. Give functional directions like “if you go pass the blue house, you’ve gone too far”. I need all of that. I was so glad to get a car with GPS in it! The little voice saying “recalculating” or “make a U-turn when possible” is my friend!
The bible is the GPS system for getting through life’s ups and downs. God gave specific directions. He gave landmarks. He even gave functional directions. Don’t believe me. Look at vs 7 – “if you follow the directions, you will be successful in everything you do” “if you study the book, you will be more likely to obey what is there”, “if you do what is written, you will be wise”. Hmm seems very specific to me and very functional. My favorite part is “God will be with me everywhere I go”!
When you find yourself off track, lost, unsure of which way to turn, STOP ask yourself did follow directions? Be honest! You did it your way, didn’t you? You thought you knew what was best. It’s okay just get back on track and do it HIS way. Get back on right path and watch success become your best friend.
Until Next Time,
