A few months ago I was in Kansas City for a writer’s conference. I was not familiar with the area and was looking down at the GPS to make sure I was following the instruction carefully to get to the venue. The flashing lights I saw in the mirror indicated I should have been paying closer attention to the street signs and speed limits and construction zone warning than I was my GPS.
You know, often I get people’s opinion confused with the posted word of God. His instructions to me in the Bible are clear and based in love to guide me.
Mr. Smarty pants from Scotland had no way to know about the orange work cones and warnings to slow down that were just posted. I was looking in the wrong place to get where I needed to go.
Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
Psalm 119:105 (King James Version)
105Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
