One interesting technological advancement that has found a home in many newer model cars is a blind spot monitor. These sensors detect cars on the side and rear of one’s car. These locations are the classic blind spots, spots where a neighboring car may not be readily seen by the side and rear view mirrors. I can attest that this clever invention does work and on more than one occasion, I have avoided a serious accident when the warning was triggered.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a blind spot monitor for our lives? We would be warned of unseen temptations of the world; we would be aware of the evil schemes of Satan manipulating events around us.
If only that were true!
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.
Proverbs 15:3 (ESV)
We don’t have a mechanical blind spot monitor for our lives but as a believer in Jesus Christ, we have something much greater. We have God’s promise of His presence and guidance wherever we are. He has given us His Holy Spirit to indwell within us, continually convicting our conscience when sin and temptation arise.
God’s blind spot monitor is immediately ready for everyone. All you have to do is confess and repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Don’t be blinded by the world. Allow God to enlighten your life.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
