GPS
The GPS is one of the best inventions of modern man. Just ask any woman and she will agree with you because most guys “know where they are going” when it comes to directions! I literally got lost last night driving with my wife because I thought I knew the road. We ended up on a dead end in somebody’s gated driveway near the ocean! Lol.

When I think of direction I have to ask myself is this what I want in my life, or is this what God wants for me? Too often in my own strength and knowledge I always feel I have the situation under control. The reality is that I don’t because the Lord always has a better way and plan for our lives. This is where GPS has to kick in!

God’s
Plan
Supreme

True victory in the battles we face only come by doing it God’s way according to His plan. I know this can be difficult because we know it all and how it should be done.

King Jehoshaphat gets his cue GPS from the Lord for Israel and Judah when it came to warfare against the enemy.

  1. The king prayed and God told them not to fear the enemy.
  1. Listen for the plan and follow directions.
    The battle is the Lord’s. God says to trust Him completely.
  2. Take your positions, Stand still and watch the Lord give you the victory.

“O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat!

This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!”

2 Chronicles 20:12‭, ‬15‭, ‬17 NLT

Have a victorious weekenf my friend.

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
