Take a Drive with Your Dad

“Anything of spiritual significance that happens in your life will be a result of God’s activity in you.” Henry T. Blackaby
I had a long drive ahead of me. I put the destination into my app and it spit back the fastest route. As I was making the decision, something happened. God showed up.
I sensed my Father wanted me to take another route, less direct, but a little more enjoyable than the one presented by my app.
I said, “Okay Lord.” And off I went. Little did I know that by going the route He picked out allowed me to connect with some friends that I didn’t know would be there!
God’s fingerprints were all over that decision and conversation. You should have seen the smile on my face.
I wouldn’t have had that pleasurable encounter but for two things. First, I needed to believe that my God wanted to be involved in such a decision as to which route I would take.
And because He does, it merges into the second point. I needed to listen and be willing to follow if He so chose to speak. And, in this case, He did.
This is your God. He wants to be involved in the everyday things that you do, like eating and drinking (1 Cor. 10:31).
How much of your God you experience is up to you. Put another way, how bad do you need God in your life? If you don’t, you won’t be open to Him getting involved.
Yes, I could have made the decision to get where I was going without His input and would have arrived at my destination in a timely manner.
But…, I would have missed out on that wonderful connection with my friends and that smile put on my face from an awesome God who cares about me enough to put it there.
Today, let your Dad be involved in your life. Who knows, He just may put a smile on your face as well.
