He’ll Get You Back on Track
By Victoria Osteen - Mar 11, 2010
At some point in our lives, every one of us has missed out on God-given opportunities. Maybe you can think of a few right now. If so, I want to encourage you: Don't live in regret. Don't let lost opportunities make you feel disappointed and discouraged. God is bigger than your lost opportunities. No matter what has happened in your past, He can still get your life back on track!

It's sort of like using one of those GPS systems in your car. You set the location to where you want to go and the GPS calculates the best route. You can be driving along and get distracted and completely miss the street where the GPS instructed you to turn, but that doesn't mean you'll never reach your destination. You wouldn't just pull off to the side of the road crying, "Now I'm stuck here. I'll never get where I need to go, all because I missed my turn!" No, there's always another way to get there. In fact, that GPS system will instantly re-calculate the route to your destination based on your present location.

Well, God works in a similar way. He is constantly giving us direction, speaking to our hearts, leading us by granting peace or unrest in our spirits, but even when we miss His instructions—and we all do from time to time—He will recalculate our route and get us back where we need to be.

I love what the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 13: "One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead…" He was saying, we must turn our thoughts toward the future and keep looking for the new opportunities. God is a restorer and He loves to restore opportunities. It may not always happen the way you think, but keep your heart open to Him. He'll get you back on track towards the wonderful destiny He has prepared for you!
