I have a Ford Escape with Sync navigation. Recently I had to update the software and with most technology, that comes with some bugs.
One of the issues is that my dashboard electronic map at any moment can decide to go crazy. I needed to double check a street I was taking after a doctor’s appointment and when I looked at the map, it showed me driving through a lake. Like I said, crazy.
Thing is, the GPS kept doing that. I requested directions to take me home from a route I wasn’t too familiar with and the system refused to work. It had me on the other side of town and never caught up to where I really was. It was as if the GPS was resisting the truth and making its own way.
The reality was I was on a two lane highway ten minutes from home. The GPS displayed I was driving through the lake, then a development not even close to home, and then not on a freeway, but through it. Watching it unfold was nothing short of ridiculous.
Then it hit me, isn’t that the state of the world right now? As a Christian, the Bible is my ultimate guide. I trust it, and His word does not fail me. But I’ve watched others make the Bible fit their reality by changing the directions.
Last week on Good Morning America, President Obama announced that ISIS was contained. Hours later my newsfeed was filled with the horrors ISIS masterminded in Paris.
In order to get my GPS to make sense again, I had to hit a button called “Master Reset.” I tried the navigation and I reached my destination with accuracy. There was still stress thanks to traffic, but having truth and reality match up made a world of difference.
I believe we are in a season where everything that can be shaken, will be. You are either all in for Christ, or you are not. For those that hedged on that commitment or once rejected Him but want to change, Jesus IS the master reset. He can take all the things we forced to look right and put us on the right path.
What scares me is it appears more people would like to announce they are reaching the destination yet driving through a lake. It’s truth to them and they seem willing to stick with it. It reminds me of my rebellious GPS until I hit that master reset.
If you’d like to hit that master reset button, please contact any one of us here at Christians Read, and/or click here.
