Detours are designed by God to get us on the right path. No matter how many detours we go through in life, God has a big destination but first we need to take a long road trip.
Dr. Tony Evans says, “God is constructing us for something to he’s constructing something for us.”
Before we can make it to our destination we must first a long road trip. Detours happen because God knew and saw what that road will be like so he uses detours to make us re- evaluate our lives. God is making us suffer for something he has better for us. Our destination as planned by God, detours are unpredictable and we don’t know where it will take us. As my sister Judy said this morning in service, 2017 is the year of grace all we need to do is trust and obey.
1) Trust that God will take us to our destination.
2) Obey every command of God.
You will not be alone on your road trip God will be there with you but sometimes God will keep you on that detour because you are not prepared to receive what God has in store for you. Just like God was there for Joseph and Daniel; he will be there for you be prepared when God takes you out of your detour.
When you miss a turn while driving on the road what do you do? You make a U-turn. Imagine that’s your path well God notice that you are going the wrong way or maybe he see something you cannot see. Have you ever notice when the construction team put that big orange detour sign out front? Imagine that being a barricade in your life…… and God’s angels is telling you to go this way or that way.
You cannot go through that barricade because that road contains something that will try to destroy you. Detours are there for a reason God wants us to realize that no matter how many times he takes us on a detour he wants us to be ready for a big destination. You may think that you’re ready for your destination but God knows that you’re not.
Until you prepare for the rain or plant seed you’re not to move until God tells you to move.
