Morning Coffee with Jesus - October 11, 2011
Greetings loved ones.
Today’s “Morning Coffee with Jesus” comes from Romans 8:14-15, “14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship…”
I have spent countless hours seeking a job in my career field – Human Resources. I have been on a bunch of interviews that have taken me all over the New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania area. Fortunately I have a GPS which provides excellent directions to get me to my interviews and back home again. I am so thankful for this useful device. My GPS ensures I don’t get lost. It gives me an estimated arrival time to my destination, it tells me how far I’ve gone, how fast I’m driving, and it lets me know when I’ve gone in a wrong direction.
Spiritually speaking, the Holy Spirit is a type of “GPS” system. The Holy Spirit lets me know when I’ve gone in a wrong direction. The Holy Spirit tells me how “far” I’ve gone from my original destination (my level of intimacy with God), and when I’ve made wrong choices, the Holy Spirit tells me to turn around.
What has the Holy Spirit been showing you lately? Have you spent time in God’s Word, allowing the Holy Spirit to illuminate the “nuggets of truth” that pricks the conscience and restores direction? Have you been listening or are you ignoring the warning signs that you are going in a wrong direction? If you keep ignoring the warning signs you’ll get so far off track that it will be more difficult to find your way back – not impossible, but tough.
I use my GPS faithfully. It enables me to get to my destination in a timely manner and helps me get out of what often seems like an impossible maze of streets! I am so thankful for my GPS for what it can do for me. Likewise, I am eternally grateful to the Holy Spirit for providing direction when I need it.
Pay attention to your “internal GPS!”
Have an awesome day in Jesus!
