“Keep watching the wind and you will never sow, keep staring at the clouds and you will never reap.”
Before making life-changing decisions, we want all the signs to be right. Signs can reassure us that we are following the proper course or indicate that we need to change However, signs are often open to more than one interpretation and seldom as obvious as the pillar of cloud leading the Israelites through the desert or the sword – wielding angel blocking Balaam’s donkey. If we wait for a thundering voice from heaven, we may miss the still small voice within us and waste opportunities God is holding out to us. In so many seemingly inconsequential events, God’s loving order is unfolding all around us, but it may not be until years later that we can look back and understand what we didn’t recognize at the time. Sometimes, we just need to step out in faith, trusting God to guide us along a path we can’t yet see and to walk with us wherever His spirit leads.
FATHER GOD, OPEN OUR HEARTS TO HEAR YOUR VOICE AND TO SEE YOUR HAND IN THE ORDERING OF OUR LIVES. LET US NOT BE LIMITED BY OUR OWN TERPRETATIONS, BUT GIVE US GRACE TO TRUST IN YOU. AMEN.
