How many of us have totally relied on a piece of technological equipment to take us to places we have never been and do not know how to get there! Personally, I am not very confident when it comes to finding my way around a big city. You may hand me a direction to a particular place, or may have been driven there the first time, but remembering how to get there is always a struggle for me. I sometimes sought excuses why I cannot be there (probably for an event), but the primary reason was ‘how to get there.’

Recently I purchased a GPS navigator and ever since I am amazed and have been very pleased how it works. All I need to do when I am going to places I do not know is to key in the address of the place I am heading to, then sit back. Amazingly, it talks me through my way, giving me specific directions, quick routes, with several alternative and options to avoid toll routes, known heavy traffic routes, use the highway. Its functions extend to locating the closest restaurants, fuel stations, banks or ATM locations and facilities you may need on your way.

Its functions also alert you to the required speed limit on the road you are traveling, as well as the speed you are driving. At the same time it never forgets to alert you when you are approaching a speed or red-light cameras, enabling you to keep alert and safe while traveling.

What an amazing piece of equipment! It works! Most of us have come to rely totally on it on our journey, thus avoiding assumptions and guesswork. As such it has rid me of potential excuses why I may not turn up at an event simply because I do not know how to get there. Sorry to bore you with all that information. But I provided that information as a background to our discussion.

Now the reliance or dependence on this Satellite Navigation System (Navigator) is what I will call Faith. Nine times out of ten you will always trust it. Now if we have a piece of equipment, which helps us navigate our everyday travel on the road with such great functions, what about life’s Navigation system?

May I introduce you to a personality who is an expert in navigating lives and its affairs – far much more have the unrivaled potential in directing the course of lives than the way the electronic navigation system works. I call Him, ‘The Divine Strategist’ – the specialist navigator. He is the person of the Holy Spirit of God. He is the one who can perform the ‘live’ life’s functions of the Navigator and more. At some point, you will need to update your navigator, but the Divine Strategist (the Holy Spirit) is full with capacity and lacking nothing. Instead, he updates you with more knowledge of him as you go on. He is a ‘one stop shop’ to all life’s solutions.

Just the way one goes to purchase a navigator from a retail store, He is not available for purchase because you cannot buy Him, but you can acquire His influence and engage His services and assistance without money. All you need do is to make total verbal and heart believing invitation for Him to come to you.

It is important most times when leaving your car to disconnect and remove the mobile navigator to avoid theft. As for the Divine Strategist, he is not something you ‘take’ along; He lives inside you so that you do not have to be without help at anytime, place and in any aspect of your life. It is demeaning to compare Him to a piece of an electronic navigator, but this is done to bring you into a basic understanding of his personality using this illustration.

If you do not have Him and you will love to encounter Him, ask Him in your best possible way to come into your life: trust me, He will not refuse you. He has always loved to come in, but HE wanted to be formally introduced to you. He is very patient and will not impose Himself on you without your consent. Now is your time to acquire the best practice, best help, the specialist, the divine strategist there is and will ever be: the person of the Holy Spirit.

Furthermore, the electronic navigator may lose reception and unable to connect to the satellite which feeds it the live information. The Holy Spirit Himself is the satellite and He is eternally connected with God who is all in all.

To invite Him in, you may choose to use my words if you cannot think of anything to say to Him at the moment. However while you are borrowing my words, I give you full privilege to make it your own by attaching real meaning to it.

“Dear Holy Spirit of God, may I introduce myself to you too. My name is (your name). I heard about you today and realized you waited for me all my life to know you. Now I ask you Holy Spirit, please come into my life to stay. Fill up the empty spaces of my life, taking out the junks that I have heaped through years of ignorance. Stay with me as you have promised you will. I will always trust you from now on and will lack nothing more. Welcome to your home in me. Amen.”
