Gods word is a complete mapbook

6 Sep

“I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You” Psalms 119:11.

This weekend as our training team from SANSSA on their way to Bethlehem in the Free State, to run a Discover Teaching course, we had an interesting exercise in travelling, when you have no idea where you are going.

We were given lots of advice and differing opinions about how to get there and ended up going 90kms extra.

This reminded me that it is so easy to listen to the many voices telling you how to live your life.

We can have a built in GPS which can have updates added everyday.

When we have given our hearts to Jesus, the Holy Spirit is present with us to lead and guide us. As we daily read God’s Word we have one complete guidebook.

When we daily download God’s word into our spirits, we have the only reliable information that will get us through the unfamiliar territory of our lives and help us to arrive safely at our destination of life with Him forever!

Spiritual, emotionally and intellectually , each of us daily moves through new and uncharted territory, in our lives. We are all going forward to an unknown place and its no wonder we end up lost and confused.

As we study the map book God has given us, we will find that it is reliable and will keep us from wandering and wondering in our lives.

As Sunday School teachers, we then need to help our learners to realise this truth, that Gods word is a complete map book for their lives.

The younger they are to discover this truth, the less chance there is for them to get lost on the way.

Give them a love of reading their map book and thereby you will help them to be constantly downloading life changing instructions and principles into the GPS in their hearts. Then the Holy Spirit can use this to guide them.
Help your learner to find the best route possible to their God given destination of a life with Him forever.

Don’t let your own map book become outdated or unreliable but keep it fresh in your mind and heart!

Out of the abundance of your heart will flow streams of living water.
