Navigating Your Dreams

When you hear the word navigation system, what comes to your mind?  Would it be a small device that sits in your car or the app that is in your phone that gives you step by step directions to your destination?  That is what I want to talk about today, your navigation system.  Are you navigating from the driver’s seat or the passenger’s seat to your destiny?

I want to compare the navigation system to our minds.  It is where all decisions are made, it is where we contemplate what we are going to do, it is where we rationalize over things we must do, etc.  The Bible says we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.  Can you believe that?  We can be totally transformed just by renewing how we think and how we process?

The navigation system also has to be renewed by making sure they have the up-to-date software that has all the new streets and routes downloaded in it.  Could you imagine having a navigation system that you depended on to get you to your destination and it was not up to date.  So in the middle of your journey you found yourself lost and confused; too far to go back home and not close enough to ask for directions.

That is how many of us find ourselves in life sometimes.  We stepped out on God and what we believed God led us to do only to find that along this journey our mind hasn’t been renewed for this new faith walk.  What!  This new walk God has me on isn’t familiar to me.  I’m not comfortable on this journey because I am no longer in control like I want to be.  Isaiah 42:16 says, “I will lead the blind by a way they knew not and down paths they have not known; I’ll make darkness light before them and crooked places straight and these things will I do and not forsake them.”

When you are navigating from the driver’s seat it means you are listening to Holy Spirit daily for His leadership and step by step directions.  You are attentive to His small voice and the way He impresses upon your spirit to do.  Remember, your mind must be in agreement with your spirit and not oppose what Holy Spirit says to you.  If your mind is not renewed, there will always be a constant battle and reasoning which only brings frustration and confusion.  Command your mind to be in agreement with your spirit man and stay in the driver’s seat to your destiny and your dreams.
