In a spiritual sense, Jesus calls believers to journey with him because he knows your destination and wants to lead you to it. There will be plenty of people or situations that will tempt you to veer off course, especially when you are a little bored, but Jesus wants you to stay focused and to not get distracted by the myriad of pointless activities that lead you away from Christ. Some of the temptations to veer off course are powerful, like pursuing pleasure to get your adrenaline fix or sacrificing your family to chase fantasies. But in the end, they will lead you down a dead end road and who knows how far you will stray before you come to the end.
Here is my advice for you. Whatever path you are traveling right now, make sure you are traveling it with Jesus. Don’t invite him to join you on your journey, that’s like telling Google Maps when you are going to turn. Rather, pursue Him and his destiny for you, then align your life to His will and proceed. He will tell you when you need to turn, stop, rest, or keep going.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
