Winds blowing twirling sweeping here and there. Hair flying, unzipped jacket tugged open, I rush to shelter in my car. In the ‘quiet’ I still hear the sound of the rushing outside and feel the slight jerking as a mighty gust tries to get at me. Not really, LOL, but it feels like that.
Sitting, relaxing from the struggle, my mind smiles. Oh God, You are so mighty and Your wind creation is but a delicate taste of Your power. I enjoy the struggle against the pushing pulling invisible blowing currents of air. It seems to symbolize our struggles against You ~ You know, when we don’t want to believe Your truth or do what You tell us. I finally decided to give in and just obey.
Acts 9:4-5 (AMP)
4 And he fell to the ground. Then he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me [harassing, troubling, and molesting Me]?
5 And Saul said, Who are You, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, Whom you are persecuting. It is dangerous and it will turn out badly for you to keep kicking against the goad [to offer vain and perilous resistance].
It took me awhile Lord; I surely fought against Your ways trying to reason with my mind what Your ways are, discounting what Your Word says. Yes, I was kicking against the goad. Back then I didn’t know the Bible as Your Living Word. How thankful I am that You did not give up on me. You maintained the wind strength driving me into Your heart. Thank You my God! There is no way life could be so good without Your place in it. And now I have the promise of an afterlife, an eternity of knowing You with joy and no more pain and struggle.
Lord, You pour Your love into my heart, download Your joy, Jesus, filling my being. You’re so patient with us, Your children. Your patient persistence has blessed me incredibly! Now Lord show me how to be Your wind to other people; let the currents of Your heart blow through my lips. Allow Your presence in me to draw others to hear what my heart says about You. Somehow, my God, You will work through me to bring others to know You deeply. It is my hearts desire, and Your desire as well. I trust You.
