“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Proverbs 3:6

How many remember the AA route planner, available from most petrol stations, for a reasonable price? These were the sat nav’s of the 90’s and required skill and preparation to make sure you knew you A roads from your M’s and B’s. It took precision, especially if your journey required a page change!

With the improvements in technology, I got in my car this week, typed the postcode in and fully relied on ‘Google Maps’ to get me from A to B. Of course, some people find it difficult to transition to this modern way of living. Maybe it is a fear that someone is tracking your movements, or a desire to keep the journey interesting, or a fear of wasting precious data.

The words of Solomon in Proverbs 3 are the basis of our school motto, to have one’s steps directed by the Lord. What can we do to make this our daily prayer? In Proverbs 3:5 it says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”  

There is so much more knowledge available to us at the touch of a button. An elderly relative of mine has searched for over 20 years for a song he had sung at church when he was a young pastor. He had looked in collectors' bookshops but had been unable to recall the title. All he had was a couple of lines. When he shared these lines with me, I typed it into a search engine and was listening to the song on YouTube within a few minutes. Unaware that such technology existed, he was overwhelmed.

As we remember all the prayers we have prayed over this past term, let us take time to check our direction and make our prayer, ‘Lord direct me today’.

What is your response?
As you read the devotional, set some time aside to ask God how the word can change you today.
James 1:22 says "Do not merely listen to the word...do what it says." How can you live out the challenges set, or share the encouragement from the post today?
