Just like we all rely on GPS to get us to and fro, we need Spiritual GPS to keep us from becoming lost. The Trinity has everything we need to make it to our Heavenly home.
I tell you, use the worldly things you have now to make ‘friends’ for later. Then, when those things are gone, you will be welcomed into a home that lasts forever.
Luke 16:9, ERV
GPS – Global Positioning System
GPS, Global Positioning System, is a nifty instrument used to help people everywhere determine their exact location on Earth. When this technology came to my attention, I was certainly the one shouting Hallelujah! Finally! I will NEVER be lost again!
You see, I was always the one that had difficulty reading maps or any written instructions for that matter. Even though I trusted the person writing the instructions, I still found myself not trusting the path. I always doubted each and every turn I’d make.
When GPS came into my life, I found myself heavily relying on it because, quite honestly, it works! I get where I’m going and I always find my way back. Robert L. Easton knew what he was doing when he engineered this brilliant design. He is clearly smarter than I am! I’m just thankful it works! I know I can always trust my GPS will get me home safe and sound. And for that, I’m forever grateful.
I mean, aren’t you, Dear Reader?
God is Global
According to Google, global by definition means relating to the whole world; worldwide; relating to or embracing the whole of something, or of a group of things. God is the Creator of ALL things, which includes our world. I love how the second definition of global uses the word embracing, to give it a just description. God certainly embraces the whole world in His hands.
He is the inventor and maker of it all. He controls all things by keeping everything working in perfect harmony with each other. The Sun has it’s perfect position, as do the planets, the stars, and even you and I, Dear Friend. God is holding it all out of a love we have only scratched the surface to comprehend. For me, knowing this gives me a safe feeling inside. Knowing He’s got everything under control. It gives me peace and rest.
Together with these things, the most important part of your new life is to love each other. Love is what holds everything together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:14, ERV
Prophet is Positioning
Again, using Google as my dictionary today, I found it interesting to see that the word positioning means, put or arrange (someone or something) in a particular place or way. Or to promote a service as the fulfillment of that sector’s specific requirements.
Beloved, I pray you receive this today. Jesus is the Prophet whom the Old Testament prophesied would come. The Disciples had been waiting for Him! They knew Jesus was the One.
The people saw this miraculous sign that Jesus did and said, ‘He must be the Prophet who is coming into the world.’
John 6:14, ERV
God sent Jesus to fulfill specific requirements. He came to fulfill the Old Testament Prophesy; to live the life we could not live; to die the death that we deserve; and to resurrect from the grave defeating death itself. He is positioned at the right side of God, in Heaven. Jesus holds everything together with His powerful command.
The Son shows the glory of God. He is a perfect copy of God’s nature, and he holds everything together by his powerful command. The Son made people clean from their sins. Then he sat down at the right side of God, the Great One in heaven.
Hebrews 1:3, ERV
Spirit is Systems
You got it! Google defines systems as being a set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or an interconnecting network. It even breaks it up into four parts: Physiology – (The human body and organs working together), Computing – (Technology, like computer parts, working together), Geology – (Land and nature working together), and Astronomy – (Celestial objects, like planets orbiting around the sun, working together). This was very interesting to me because that is the divine purpose of the Holy Spirit. To work all parts; mind, body, and soul, together according to the will of God.
In him the whole building, being put together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you are also being built together for God’s dwelling in the Spirit.
Ephesians 2:21-22, CSB
The Holy Spirit enters our bodies upon salvation and begins re-building our parts to work according to the will of God. Our bodies become the Spirit of God’s dwelling place. That is so neat! It is trustworthy to believe, Dear Sister, that the same God who holds ALL things together, lives in us, holding us together as well. This is such GOOD NEWS! Just like our GPS is an instrument we use to locate where we are and where we are headed, The Spirit within us is the instrument helping us to determine which route to take.
GPS is God – Prophet – Spirit
After reviewing all this, I was compelled by the Holy Spirit to re-write my first paragraph. It looks a bit different now…
GPS, God – Prophet – Spirit, is a nifty instrument used to help people everywhere determine their exact location in life. When this trilogy came to my attention, I was certainly the one shouting Hallelujah! Finally! I will NEVER be lost again!
You see, I was always the one that had difficulty reading the Bible or any written instructions for that matter. Even though I trusted the person writing the instructions, I still found myself not trusting the path. I always doubted each and every turn I’d make.
When GPS came into my life, I found myself heavily relying on it because, quite honestly, it works! I get where I’m going and I always find my way back. I felt like, God, the genius behind this neat creation, knew what He was doing when He engineered this brilliant design. He is clearly smarter than I am! I’m just thankful it works! I know I can always trust my GPS will get me to my eternal home safe and sound. And for that, I’m forever grateful.
