God’s Global Positioning System – A Word by Elaine Tavolacci
For the past two weeks, I shared a prophetic word for 2020 in two parts titled: “2020 THE ROARING 20’s”. We are living in exciting times. The heavens are open and if we open our spiritual eyes we will see that the fields are already white for harvest. The past few months we have seen many celebrities, actors, actresses as well as musicians accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior. There are multitudes across our nation who are searching for God and are in need of mentors. As Holy Spirit filled believers Jesus wants to use us to reach these people. This is why we must learn how to be led by the Holy Spirit.
God will not give you anything that you are not able to shift or transform. Robby Dawkins said that when we give a prophetic word, lay hands on the sick, cast out demons or do anything else that is supernatural, we are engaging in war. That is why it is imperative to walk in the Spirit. You cannot take ground from the enemy if he has any ground in you.
The Lord gave me a word twelve years ago about being led by the Holy Spirit in comparison to a GPS System. There is popular device known as a GPS that is used in aircraft’s and automobiles. GPS is an abbreviation for Global positioning system. For those of you that are not familiar with it, a GPS is a small gadget that will tell you exactly where you are on earth at any time of day. It gives you directions by transmitting signals from a satellite to your GPS receiver. The only thing that is required to get a connection is to have an unobstructed view of the sky.
The signals move at the speed of light to arrive at a GPS. With the GPS navigation system, you can type in any address or location and it will automatically calculate the fastest way to get you to your destination. It highlights the location on the screen, and gives you a visual of the road ahead. In this same way that a GPS receives signals from the satellite, we could receive discernment and direction for our lives through connecting with the Holy Spirit.
If you don’t follow the directions on the GPS and you go off in a different direction, the navigation system won’t stop just because you got off course. It will immediately update and calculate a new route from where you are. You could still get you to your destination from wherever you made the wrong turn. Even if you went miles out of the way in the wrong direction, up and down mountains, through the wilderness or into valleys this navigation system will constantly make adjustments showing you the quickest and easiest way to go back in the right direction from where you are.
In the same way, the Holy Spirit wants to lead you. If you got off course in 2019 He wants to bring you back in the direction that He has for you. He will immediately come up with another way and plan no matter how far off you went. He will find another route to bring those dreams to pass in your life. He will show you how to get your ministry back on course. Even your mistakes and shortcomings won’t cancel out Gods plans for your life if you turn from them and allow Holy Spirit to take you back on track.
“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it, Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.”
Psalm 32: 8
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”
Proverbs 16: 9
“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.”
