Key to the Road Map

Posted on November 23, 2014 at 11:30 PM
John 16:13(ISV)  “Yet when the Spirit of Truth comes, he’ll guide you into all truth. He won’t speak on his own accord, but he’ll speak whatever he hears and will declare to you the things that are to come.”
      In these days of global access and GPS, we often do not have a need to actually look at and try to decipher a printed map.  One of the main objectives of studying a map is to find locations, estimate distances and to chart routes from point A to point B.  The map itself is usually a bird’s eye view to the terrain with different signs and symbols of varying shapes and sizes.  Some objects are outlined with BOLD lines; while others have dashes and wavy lines.  Some places have stars or triangles over different locations; while others simply have a series of numbers. To one who has studied maps for a while, these symbols are second nature, but to a newcomer to map reading, it can be quite confusing and of little use. Somewhere on every map, usually tucked away in a corner is what is known as the ‘key’.  These are the instructions which help us decipher the map and discover its hidden secrets.  Solid lines will give us hints about land borders and distances and dashes let us know that boundaries might be waterways. Stars might represent capitals of cities; while triangles can tell how high the terrain is above sea level. The maps hold the true data but without the ‘key’ we might not be able to easily unlock the treasures that it holds. 
      Many of the lessons that Jesus teaches us have hidden meanings that the world can never figure out no matter how hard they try. But Jesus provides assistance to his followers by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus tells us that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life and that through our association with him we are able to have access to the Father.  Through the glorification of Jesus by his death, burial and resurrection, we have been granted the presence of the Holy Spirit which lives within us as our present help and comfort. When you are feeling uncertain and not sure of what your journey will entail; do not stay in confusion- that is not what God wants.  Use the resource that is as close as a whisper, a thought or a bent knee.  Ask the Holy Spirit to direct you to all truth about your concerns and he will be sure to speak that which comes directly from God on your behalf.  He will show you Jesus in all of his glory in whatever situation you are facing.  The Holy Spirit is your ‘key’ to using the roadmap (lessons of the life of Jesus) to have victory in moving from point A to point B.  Unlike GPS units which can malfunction in certain ‘dead zones’ or weather conditions; the map that Jesus provides and the keys that the Holy Spirit gives are sure each and every time.  Ask for the guidance you need and faithfully follow the clues you are given to reach your ultimate goal in Jesus.  Every day is a good day; it is up to us to make it a GREAT day!  Be blessed. Dr. JoAnn

There are few things on that we did not do discussion and we don't need to do it because we all know the right thing. I always suggest people talk about the truth and reality.

The path towards righteousness is challenging. We will encounter obstacles along the way that would test our determination to continue following the path of Jesus. In this trying times, we must always remember that Jesus is still with us. He has not forsaken us. It is us who often times forsake Him, especially when things are looking bright and life is all right. It is when we are in deep trouble that we seek Jesus, asking him why He let something bad happen to us. But it is us who let bad things happen because of the bad choices we make. Remember the story of the footprints in the sand? At first, it was 2 pairs of footprints - yours and Jesus'. When life is hard, the footprints become 1 pair only. This is because Jesus is carrying us.

The time it needed you to type the above....could have been consumed more wisely and the time applied to you doing your assignments. Unless you do them or you don't and if you don't them the consequence will be a deep or failing grade. whenever I plan to do my assignments I really feel like not to do em now I will do it afterward even though

I have just come across your post and I believe this is exactly what I am looking for. I want an economics assignment help from a tutor who can guarantee me a top grade. Do you charge per page or does it depend on the
bulk of the economics homework help being completed? More to that if the work is not good enough do you offer free corrections.

Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon.

Besides my C course, I have a job and family, both of which compete to get my time. I couldn't find sufficient time for the challenging C assignments, and these people came in and saved my skin. I must commend them for the genius Programming Assignment Help. Their C Homework Help tutors did the best job and got me shining grades.

Hi, other than economics assignment help are there other subjects that you cover? I am having several assignments one needs an economics homework help expert and the other one needs a financial expert. If you can guarantee quality work on both then I can hire you to complete them. All I am sure of is that I can hire you for the economics one but the finance one I am not sure.

Hey STATA homework help expert, I need to know if you can conduct the Kappa measurement of agreement. This is what is in my assignment. I can only hire someone for statistics assignment help if they are aware of the kappa measurement of agreement. If you can do it, then reply to me with a few lines of what the kappa measure of agreement is. Let me know also how much you charge for statistics homework help in SAS.
