Recently, I witnessed right before my eyes how we can have all the right intentions, but, like the voice in our GPS, we will hear "recalculating" if we drive past our intended destination.
The Word of God is our GPS. But so many times mathematics has gotten us off track. We either add or take away what was originally communicated (because of our natural mind).
The subtlety of the shift in meaning as demonstrated in the video below is just one of the thousands of examples that have caused us to be derailed in our "journey."
As we travel the road towards our destiny I am discovering more and more that the key to our effectiveness is studying, planning, and executing according to the roadmap. That is NOT the time to be creative.
