Is Life a road trip without destination

In yesterday’s blog I wrote about the importance of asking God for directions—using the analogy of a road trip. Imagine going on a road trip without a destination in mind. Asking for directions would be irrelevant.

I think this is how many unfulfilled Christians live their lives. To them life is like a road trip without a destination, or you might say, they have no sense of destiny. Such people focus on motion (or activity). They may not know where they are going, but they are on their way! Unfortunately, thousands who sit in church pews week after week have somehow missed the truth which provides meaning, direction, purpose and commitment: a sense of DIVINE DESTINY [or DESTINATION].

As the sons of God, our life is like a road trip. And in fact, we may not be aware of the specific “destination” we are “destined” to arrive at. But if we truly believed we were people of destiny, we would surely be mindful of seeking His direction every day. Why? Because we would know that each day’s assignment, given by Him, is a preparation and a precursor to the next step and the next, until we attain to that destiny for which we were called.

Alphonso's input

As I searched through Greg's blogs to post in remembrance and edification of him I was led to this one written Tuesday May 5, 2009.

We have the God given ability deep within more like a GPS system that will guide us to our destiny in a given amount of time. That time is determined by how well we follow instructions. Also the ability to hear that still inner voice explains why some people excel in life further and reach a sense of purpose quicker than others. If only we can truly understand how important it is to know where you are in life. We don't always like to admit where we are because if the truth be told, we know our lives are not what God intended for it to be. With that said we are not strangers to that inner voice," we just tend to ignore it or write it off.

The Bible tells us in John 10:27, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." God speaks to all of us regardless of our religious belief.
