Spiritual satnav 2
'He persevered because he saw him who is invisible.' Hebrews 11:27 NIV
History is full of 'out-there' people, and often there is a fine line between 'craziness' and genius: the Wright brothers were crazy enough to believe they could fly like birds, and set the blueprint for the modern aeroplane. Benjamin Franklin was one of the predecessors of the idea of electrical current. A genius and a 'crazy': he tested his theories by flying a kite in a thunder storm (don't try this at home folks)! All these people trusted their instincts and acted on them.
The Bible is full of stories of people who did things considered 'crazy'. 1 Kings 17 tells the tale of a widow who lived during a famine, with only enough food to scrape together for one last meal. Yet she was crazy enough to share it with the prophet Elijah. Even though most of her must have been thinking, 'I've not even enough for myself', her spiritual sat-nav whispered, 'Give what you've got, God will give you back what you need'. She was right, God provided for her throughout the famine. And what about Noah? He was considered crazy by just about everyone at the time. He built the world's biggest boat in the middle of a desert, many kilometres from water, all because his spiritual sat-nav prompted him to. And his sat-nav proved correct.
In the Bible, God came through for people who trusted the spiritual sat-navs he had given them. Their courage always led to great things for God.
So what now? What might God be showing you that others haven't seen? Check your spiritual sat-nav.
