Have you ever looked at something someone had done and thought it had to be the dumbest act ever done on earth?
Do you ever look at some of the amazing acts in the Bible and scratch your head with amazement?
We are very blessed to see the results of what God did in the Old Testament stories. But these stories are history and hindsight is 20/20 as the old saying goes.
Now is now and it is very possible that there is a fork in your road and you may be totally unsure of what to do- you are not alone!
“Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‘Go south to the road- the desert road- that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” – Acts 8:26
Philip replied, “Do you have any idea how hot it is out there!” “But my sandals are about to give out.” “But….” “But….”
NO Philip got up and went. We try to make this mystical thing out of an angel talking to someone and well frankly I think thats a lot of crap. Angels talk to us each and every day- I dont think God speaks as much through laser light shows as He does through a still small voice saying, “LOVE ONE ANOTHER!”
Could God still speak through a burning bush? Sure but what if He really wanted us to listen to a whisper instead of a slap up side the head?
You are at a fork in the road and here is the great thing as long as you are ALL ABOUT LOVING OTHERS- You cant make a wrong decision!
There are so many people who desperately need LOVE and so many miracles God can and will do through you that either way “He will direct your path” and He will work through you.
Why cant God give me an exact answer?
Perhaps He would rather see if you will go wait in the desert by the road- that takes faith.
In Philips case while he was on his way there he met his mission. Due to that mission a man was changed and that man took the story of Jesus and the good news of the gospel to a whole new area.
To coin an old Nike phrase- Just Faith It!!
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!!
