Riding the Fence or the Wind

One day while Julia and I were driving I looked in my rear view mirror and happened to see two white plastic bags. One was flying around through the air in circles due to the high winds that day, the other bag was stuck on top of a barbed wire fence shredded to pieces. I had a sudden revelation! I want to be like the plastic bag that was carried and blown freely by the wind, not the one that’s stuck on the fence ripped to pieces. Which one fits you? Talking spiritually – do you feel free and guided by God? Or do you feel stuck and injured, unsure of how to break free from your current season in life? I pray that you’re the free one but if not then I pray that God will help you find your freedom and guidance in Him. God wants us to excel, to enjoy life, to achieve things, not to remain forever in poverty, purposelessness, and false humility. However, finding God is a two way street – as you go after God, He is allowed (by your actions) to come after you. Trusting in God for your every need and answer is the best place to live because He never disappoints.

James 4:8 NKJV – Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [you] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [you] double-minded.

John 3:8 NKJV – “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Isaiah 40:31 NKJV – But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew [their] strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

  1. Good point.

    ( I had a funny thought, but this is just humor added to a serious thought. I might be called an “old bag of wind.” ha !! )

    But hopefully, the spirit of God will lift us all up, and take us places with Him and show us his glory .

    Getting stuck in barbed wire does not sound too pleasant.

  2. “Trusting in God for your every need and answer is the best place to live because He never disappoints.”

    Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    Lord bless you … good to see you back posting blogs.
    I trust the Lord is blessing your new ministry.
