Trust the Wind (Part I)
Main Course: The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit (John 3:8).
As I was glancing up at the sky one mid-morning, I saw two eagle-like birds flying high in the sky on the current’s wind, gliding with the wind as their undercurrent, moving about unhindered, uninterrupted, in the free skies. Each following the other in circular rotation; there was no flapping of wings, just spread out in total trust of the wind. And this scenario reminded me of how my life should be with God, my heavenly Father.
At a certain altitude we just have to trust the wind; where there’s no flapping (works). You come into a place of trust = rest and let the current of the wind direct your steps (cf. Ruth 2:12, Ps. 119:105, 133; Matt. 11:28-30). This is a decision we must make every day and sometimes many times throughout the day until our soul becomes disciplined enough to trust God again as we did in the beginning as a child. This characteristic of child-like trust is pure, innocent and holy unto the Lord. It is how we should be: in total trust of the wind for it to take us wherever it listeth/wills/pleases. But the only way we can totally trust is to come worship Him; come early and listen to Him, eat the daily bread from Wisdom’s table. Then and only then can we glide, soar, fly with the wind – rely on Him throughout the day to see us through every situation and/or to take us to those places that need us the most. As a result, He will reward us (3 Jn. 1:2; Eph. 3:20; 1 Pet. 5:6). - cont'd
