#62 – Sign Posts

Good afternoon fellow journeyers

The words ‘Sign Posts’ just dropped into my mind and I feel to mention a few things about them.

1. Sign posts let you know if you are headed in the right direction. There are many sign posts in our lives; how we feel, how we think, what others say, what motivates us, who we hang out with and the list goes on. We should read the sign posts and see if we are on a healthy course and headed in the direction we know God wants us heading. Even if you’re off course, it’s not too late to change direction.

2. Other people are sign posts to us. We should be careful who we allow to speak into our lives. We want to be listening to those who have gone before and marked out the path. Every person should have godly people who have been given permission to speak into their lives; to say “Hey you’re heading the wrong way; do a U-turn.”

3. Our lives are sign posts to others. Every one of us is an example to others. If you’re 15, you’re an example to 10 year olds; they watch you and learn how to live life from you. If you’re 25, you’ve got 18 year olds reading the sign posts of your life. Some don’t want to be influencers; you just want to enjoy life with no responsibility. It’s not possible; every person is a sign post to others. The only question is, are we pointing people in the right direction or directing them off course?

Today I encourage you to STOP and have a look at these three types of sign posts. I then encourage you to make necessary adjustments to ensure you are on the right track.

Luke 21:34 Be careful, (take heed to yourselves; pay attention) or your hearts will be weighted down with dissipation (a hang over), drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap
