A compass is an instrument of direction. It is the most crucial instrument for sea, air, and desert travelers. There are no pointers in the air, sea, or desert. It is easy to get lost while traveling through these places.
You can only tell the direction of your destination on the cardinal point: whether it’s South, East, or West. Once you’ve established this, you must find where North is North. All cardinal points must originate from the North. If you are traveling with a compass that cannot point North, you are lost.
With what compass are you traveling through life?
Life is like a sea or desert; it is like the sky above which there is no indication for any direction.
- How do you know which way you are headed?
- How do you know if you are headed for life or destruction?
- How do you know if you are on the path of your destiny?
- How do you know what your final destination will be?
Some people set out to go to heaven and land in hell, and others that were once on a bright path are now in darkness.
Many whose future seemed promising are now useless on the streets due to misdirection, either societal pressure or deceit.
As a child of God, there is no way to know where you are heading if you do not have a compass that points to The Source of your life; GOD.
Many have cut short lives because their compass didn’t point North.
Some more have become useless because they have no sense of direction.
Confusion has become the lot of several others because they have been marking their path with a compass that doesn’t point North.
God is the One who not only made you but also knows your purpose and the direction that will lead to your purpose. He only can point you in the direction you must go.
If you must find your path in life, your compass must point to God at all times. That is the only way.
You must be aligned to His Word and Spirit, and only then will you know His will for you and how to get there.
No man travels with God on the path He has set for him that would ever lose His way. And no man who neglects God and His direction will make it to eternal rest.
We must stop now and ask ourselves: Does my compass point North? Does it point to God?
If not, then we must make haste to find our direction.
To find our direction, we must turn to God by accepting and allowing Jesus to save us from our past; then, we must cling to the Bible and depend on the Spirit to guide us.
Failure to do this will result in endless navigation in the cycle of emptiness.
