When driving down a mountain recently we decided to go a way we had never gone before in order to do a bit of exploring on the way to lunch. I turned on my map function in my cell phone and hit the button that tells me where I am now located. And it occurred to me that if anyone was tracking my phone, they would now know exactly where I am.

There are some people in our country who do not want the government to have any access to check these things out… Although supposedly the government only does it for someone they have suspicions of illegal behavior. But have these same people ever considered that God always knows exactly where they are, both physically and spiritually?

He is the ultimate Global Positioning System.

Psalms 139:7-16
Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there!If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me,and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to you;the night is bright as the day,for darkness is as light with you. For you formed my inward parts;you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.Wonderful are your works;my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you,when I was being made in secret,intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance;in your book were written, every one of them,the days that were formed for me,when as yet there was none of them.


So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God.
Ephesians 2:19

Sometimes our families do not encourage and support us. There are those among us that when we made the decision to follow God we lost our friendship with our family. They don’t understand our goals now that we are a Christian.

God in His wisdom has provided us with a church family. We have a family that understands our goals, that want to help us get to heaven. But in order to avail ourselves of our church family we need to get to know them, see them, fellowship with them. We need to do more than just chat with them on Sunday morning. We need to avail ourselves of the blessing that is our church family that God has given us.
