“God’s Road Map for Heaven-Bound Pilgrims”

Key Verse

“Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” Psalm 119:18

Text — Psalm 119:17-24


A map is a representation of the earth’s surface on paper showing places like rivers, mountains or countries. There are different types of maps. Understand very clearly that earthly maps cannot direct or lead anyone to heaven. Hence, it is only God’s map that can lead you to heaven safely. This map of God is called the word of God. This is the reason the psalmist in our Bible passage prayed that God should open his eyes to see wondrous things in His word because he is a stranger. This means he wants to see godly principles, precepts and path that leads to heaven where God dwells. You must understand the fact that we are strangers here on earth. Nobody, pilot or scientist knows the route to where God dwells. It is the word of God that gives us direction and light to see the right way to heaven.

To successfully follow this road map, you must first repent and accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. Then make the Bible your best companion. Read it every day. Meditate on what you read, act on the instructions by putting into practice all that it commands. Then share the word with others.
