Many travelers today use a “GPS” to help them reach their destination. GPS stands for “Global Positioning System.” The Garmin Company also gives an explanation of how the GPS works: “GPS satellites circle the earth twice a day in a very precise orbit and transmit signal information to earth. GPS receivers take this information and use triangulation to calculate the user's exact location. Essentially, the GPS receiver compares the time a signal was transmitted by a satellite with the time it was received. The time difference tells the GPS receiver how far away the satellite is. Now, with distance measurements from a few more satellites, the receiver can determine the user's position and display it on the unit's electronic map.”
The use of the GPS illustrates the fact that we all need guidance from Heaven above! Long ago, the prophet Jeremiah exclaimed: “O LORD, I know the way of man is not in himself; It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps” (10:23).
God always knows where we are, where we need to be, and how to get there. By looking into God's word (Psalm 119:105) we can learn what the Lord has to say about our location, and receive directions for our heavenly home.
