READJUSTMENTS                       

"...this is the way, walk ye in it..." (Isaiah 30:21)

 

To hit the moon with a floating tin can NASA didn't just get the man in the moon in its crosshairs and pull the trigger on the Apollo launch pad. It took some mathematical brainstorming. Remember the moon revolves around the earth, and the earth is spinning at however many thousand miles per hour. The quarterback has to lead the split-end when he passes the ball. The hunter may need to aim slightly ahead of the turkey to figure in motion. Apollo 11 left July 16th and landed on the lunar surface July 20th, 1969. The whole flight was a series of computer controlled as well as man-made recalibrations that for aeronautic science was as near impossible to hit as though Eli Manning were to throw a football from the stadium in New York and pass through a hula-hoop in Honolulu.

 

How much farther heaven is than the moon, and how many more corrections are needed in flight! Sin is maladjustment; repentance is readjustment. There are hundreds of on and off ramps along this highway. Think of the many times Christian and Hopeful were tempted to veer from the path in Pilgrim's Progress. The natural order would be the pilgrim's regress. Left to itself the garden bears weeds. Take your hands off the steering wheel and the car will pull according to tread and road-wear or toe-in or out. Proper driving is not a matter of jerking the wheel right or left but of simple short recalculations that keep us between the white lines. Like driving, faith requires a foot feed, brakes and a wide range of peripheral view. To get from point A to point B there will be readjustments.

 

The Holy Spirit is the Pilot. "You will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it..." For Noah and Abraham the steering changes occurred only a few times in their whole lives. For me, readjustment is needed about every day. I suppose that depends on how out of alignment one is to start with. Thank God that He doesn't give up on us but keeps turning, turning, turning us in the right direction. "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord" (Psalm 37:23). If He's still straightening your logistical pattern, it must mean you're a good man. Be encouraged in that!
