[ecko_quote source=" Luke 3:5"]“ The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth”[/ecko_quote]
I love the Global Positioning Systems (GPS) in the new cars. A voice constantly tells me how far I have to go and when to turn. However, sometimes I get off course and the voice says: "Recalculating route" or 'Rerouting' The GPS specifies to me that I have gone off course and it is now recalculating the route based on my wrong turn.
Likewise, at times we can make wrong turns in our spiritual lives too. We think we are going in the right direction only to discover it was never God's will to enter into that relationship, make that business deal, hire that person or fellowship with certain individuals- the examples are limitless.
An amazing thing about God is that He can make our crooked places straight. He has an ability to make whatever blunder you make to turn out right. It may mean there might be some consequences to those decisions, but He will always allow your actions to work together for good for those that are called according to His purposes (Roman 8:28) if we repent and seek Him fully to make things right. These lessons can even contribute to greater wisdom in our lives if we learn from our mistakes.
God's omnipotence is always one step ahead of our incompetence. Do you think He knew you would make that misstep? Absolutely. Do you think your life was planned even with that misstep figured in it? Absolutely!
Isn't it comforting to know you cannot plan God out of the equation no matter how bad you mess it up? He will always turn crooked places into straight places for those who are humble and contrite. What a wonderful Heavenly Father we have. Prophet Jonah said, “For I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm” ( Jonah 4:2), How true that is!
Do you need a crooked place of your life straightened out today? Ask Him to straighten the course so you can flow in His perfect will for your life. Be cheerful my dear ones because we are blessed and our sins have been taken care of by our saviour Jesus. “Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered (Psalm 32:1)
