A couple of weeks ago I damaged my cell phone and had to replace it. I liked the iPhone I had, so I replaced it with a new iPhone with newer features.
One of the features I like is called Siri. I simply push a button and ask a question: “Where am I?” Siri will speak to me; answer my question; and, give me my location.
GPS technology makes it much easier to find your location and to locate what you are trying to find. I have been a fan of the Global Positioning Satellite technology since it hit the market place.
When I think of GPS technology, I also think about God and the marvellous way that He knows exactly where we are and what we need. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them (Psalm 139)!
I hope this is a thought that will keep you thinking.
