Instrument Rated (7)

“Lead me, O Lord…make straight your way before me.”        Ps 5:8 NIV

Instrument rated for direction. The compass has always been the pilot’s best friend. Most planes are equipped with two. How can you know the will of God? “A man named Agabus, who also had the gift of prophecy, arrived from Judea. He came over, took Paul’s belt, and bound his own feet and hands with it. Then he said, ‘The Holy Spirit declares, “So shall the owner of this belt be bound by the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem and turned over to the Gentiles.”‘ When we heard this, we and the local believers all begged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. But he said, ‘Why all this weeping? You are breaking my heart! I am ready not only to be jailed at Jerusalem but even to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus.’ When it was clear that we couldn’t persuade him, we gave up and said, ‘The Lord’s will be done’” (Ac 21:10-14 NLT). Notice, the confusion here was not over God’s will. That was clear. It was over fear concerning Paul’s life. Here we have a perfect example of letting our emotions get in the way of our spirit. It is by our spirit, not our mind, and certainly not our emotions, that we understand the ways and directions of the Lord. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Ro 8:14). You must not be led by “voices, dreams, and ‘fleeces’” (See Jdg 6:37-40). Sometimes these things support and confirm what you sense in your spirit to be God’s will, but they are never to be the sole deciding factor. Your compass is God’s Word!

This sounds like an awesome setup. Oh how I would love an upgrade to my much needed wireless network. I am currently using an old Gateway wireless B router which is slow but works good for the most part. The problem I encountered is my wireless card doesn t work at all since my wife dropped my laptop and broke my wireless card. I would sure enjoy the faster speed as well as the advanced settings with the router. I would be able to have fun messing with my friends when they are over using my wifi. Trust me, if I was to win this setup would go to VERY good use. Thanks keep up the good work!!!
