Renew and Reroute
Do you have a favorite source to reference when traveling to an unfamiliar place? These days, maps come in different sizes, shapes and mediums. Formerly, an Atlas was the go-to guide for traveling. There are various navigation systems and apps available for traveling any geographical territory.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
─ Romans 12:2 ESV
Experiencing an audible navigation system, especially when traveling in an unfamiliar area, can be welcoming. What happens when a wrong turn is made? A voice from the audible artificial intelligence (AI) device alerts you by making the statement “rerouting” or something similar to get you to the destination point initially declared. Naturally, rerouting occurs when a wrong turn is made or an obstruction such as an unfortunate wreck or road work remains between you and your destination.
Have you personally ever needed rerouting through life’s journey? God’s Word and the Holy Spirit are the guides to rerouting you and getting you back on track. Others may not hear the audible voice of God guiding you back to the path He has designed for you, and that is okay. The conversations between you and God are private. The Holy Spirit will guide you and help you discern the will of God for your life.
The Holy Spirit is your intelligent source (IS), and He will guide you correctly.
Commitment to renewing your mind by not conforming to the world’s direction can feel like a monumental task. It takes a willingness to trust and obey the IS – the Holy Spirt. He will help you discern what is acceptable and perfect.
Enjoy the hills, valleys, twists, turns and straight paths God has designed for you to traverse and encounter His glory and peace. Renewing your mind honors the Lord and creates a better life for you.
