門司区大里町にあるレストランで友達に会う約束をして、私はgoogle mapで住所を調べて地図を印刷しました。その地図を見ると九州高速道路を通る方が早いと思いました。念のために住所を車のナビにも入力しました。高速道路の入口に近づいた時、ナビは「右の方です」と言ったのに高速の入口は左の方でした。



「しかしわが民は、わたしの声を聞かず、イスラエルは、わたしに従わなかった。 それでわたしは、彼らをかたくなな心のままに任せ、自分たちのおもんぱかりのままに歩かせた。 ああ、ただ、わが民がわたしに聞き従い、イスラエルが、わたしの道を歩いたのだったら。わたしはただちに、彼らの敵を征服し、彼らの仇に、わたしの手を向けたのに。」





I promised to meet my friend at a restaurant in the town of Dairi in Moji, so I went to Google and printed a map. Looking at that map, I decided that the best way to go would be to take the Kyushu Expressway. To make sure, I put the address into my GPS too. As I approached the entrance to the Expressway, the GPS told me to go to the right, but the entrance to the Expressway was to the left. Confused for just an instant, I decided to ignore the GPS and follow the map that I had printed. As a result, I ended up with three losses.

First, I lost some money. If I had followed the GPS and taken the City Expressway, it would have cost me only \500, but I took the Kyushu Expressway to Moji and then had to enter the City Expressway to go to Dairi, so it cost me \800. Also, the Moji exit was on the other side of Dairi, so I had to go back as far as the Dairi exit. As a result, I lost time and gasoline.

Just as I suffered loss because I ignored the GPS, Christians will suffer loss if they ignore the leading of the Lord. For example, because the Israelites ignored the leading of the Lord at Kadesh, they had to wander in the wilderness for forty years. (Numbers 13-14)

In Psalm 81:11-14 the Lord said,
But My people would not heed My voice, And Israel would have none of Me. So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, To walk in their own counsels. Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, and turn My hand against their adversaries.

Likewise, the Christian who ignores the leading of the Lord and chooses to go his own way will without fail suffer loss. On the other hand, the Christian who will follow the leading of the Lord will be blessed.
Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you, all these blessings shall come upon you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God (Deuteronomy 28:1-2)
