WHAT ARE YOU — A BUS OR TAXI?
Psalms 32:8 – The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you (NLT)
When we apply the analogy of road drivers, human beings can be categorised into two sets — taxi and bus drivers. A taxi driver does not have a fixed destination because his movement is determined by the choices of the people he serves. Even if he is coming from a location and meets a passenger heading that way, he will make a U-turn and head back there. But a bus driver has a route — an assigned destination (goal). If you are not going his way, he would never pick you! When you mistakenly get on board, you will have to drop from the bus (after paying the fare) or end up at the stop.
Beloved, who are you? In what category are you placed — the bus or taxi? You need to check whether your life is shaped by others’ opinions or God’s plan for your existence. Think about this! Because many destinies have been shortchanged due to a lack of knowledge of their divine purpose and potentials. However, the good news is that God has promised in our Bible reading to lead us on the best path and to watch over us. What we then need is to pray for peace, clarity of vision, ideas and physical help. I can assure you by the grace of God; you shall find your identity and fulfil your destiny, in Jesus’ name.
Hymn: He Leadeth Me — Joseph H. Gilmore (1862)
1. Father, I am tired of wasting away. Please, show me who I am!
2. Holy Spirit, please clarify to me my identity and the reason for my current location.
1. Lord Jesus, unlock my talents and gifts to Your glory.
2. Holy Ghost! Possess me afresh, open my eyes and grant me timely directions.
3. Clouds of persistent disaster, looming over my head, family, nation and the Church; clear away!
MAKE IT A PRAYER-FILLED WEEKEND!
