Course Correction

It Is Written, Proverbs 16:9, a mans heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
When NASA plans a trip to a place like the moon to take pictures, they go through a lot of effort over a period of time. When the rocket finally blasts off, it comes under the control of computers. The reason for this is, scientists realize that there will be countless course corrections, and no matter how good the men are, everything is so precise, that it is almost impossible to do manually.
Life is like a trip to another planet. Instead of a planet though, our destination is heaven. Once we decide to go on the mission, we have to let God take over. Just as a computer constantly adjusts the course of the rocket, God adjusts our course through the Holy Spirit.
In life we encounter many kinds of problems to throw us off course. Family, job, health, the economy to name a few. We also have satan throwing lies, temptation, doubt, and fear, at us to divert our attention from our goal.
There are so many diversions in life, that it is impossible to do it by ourselves. But you see, God in His love and wisdom practiced our trip before we were even born. He knows where every little course correction must be made. If we let Him mark the course and make the changes, we can enjoy the trip in perfect peace, knowing that He is taking care of everything. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
