Have you ever been outside on a windy day and your hair, dress, hat, just everything gets to blowing every which way?
Some people just go with it and allow the wind to simply do what it does. Blow. We don’t worry about the hair, the hat or the tie. We just accept it for what it is. Wind. Then there are others who try to fight it. They use their hands and attempt to hold every strand of hair in place. Struggling for dear life to keep their jacket closed or tie securely in place.
All the while getting more and more irritated because they can’t keep the wind from taking control. Sometimes we may get a good laugh at their expensive because we know there really is no use trying to fight the wind.
First of all, you can’t see it and you certainly have no idea which way it’s gonna go next.
Secondly, it’s pretty much in control when it comes to messing up your perfect hairstyle. I mean really, why do we even get mad in the first place? We get an instant attitude because the wind is doing something we don’t want it to do. However, in the end we look pretty silly trying to fight against it.
It’s the same way with God. We fight against everything he is trying to do in our lives. He pushes us one way and since it’s uncomfortable, we decide to pull back and go against it. He blows that person from our lives and instead of accepting it, we begin to hang onto them tighter. He moves objects into our path to get us to stop or slow down and instead we veer off the path by making a detour instead of recognizing and dealing with what is in front of us.
The same way the wind is in control of how it blows us is the same way God should be in control of our lives.
Quit fighting the process. Let God blow you in the direction you should be going. Quit hanging on to something that God is trying to get you to release. He knows what’s best. He knows if you should be turning right or left. Just allow him to do what he needs to do which is perfecting you.
Find your peace in the wind. Enjoy the breeze on your face and the move of God that follows.
