A Clear Sense of Direction
Proverbs 30:25 states: The Ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer.
While watching the ants recently, I noticed if they find a piece of food, they carry the bit back to their nest in a steady stream of ants going in both directs. Itís as if they are on a very precise road. It appears, they have a clear sense of direction. Though no road is actually there, the ants have a clear goal in mind, to carry that bit of food back to their nest. They do not wander off to the side. What about believers? Do we have a clear goal or sense of direction?
Scripture speaks about direction and how God appoints things for our lives. Look at the following verses where God either prepared, appointed or directed something for the individual at hand.
Jeremiah 10:23- O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walkest to direct his steps. [ The truth in this verse is that God is the one that leads us].
Acts 17:26- And hath made of one blood all nations for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed and the bounds of their habitation. [Thatís pretty neat that God planned even the time of our birth and the location of where we would live]
1 Thessalonians 5:9 states that even our Salvation is appointed, [ look it up and see for yourself]
What I think is really neat is the book of Jonah. Look at the following verses:
Jonah 1:4 But the LORD sent out a great wind unto the sea [the key word in this verse is SENT, God sent a wind]
Jonah 1:17 Now the LORD prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah up [the key word in this verse is PREPARED, God prepared a great fish.
Jonah 2:10 And the LORD spake unto the fish and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land. [In this verse God SPOKE to the fish]
Jonah 4:6 And the LORD God prepared a gourd [this gourd that God PREPARED, was to teach Jonah a lesson that Jonah was more concerned about the gourd and his personal comfort which the gourd gave, rather than the lost folks of Nineveh]
Jonah 4:7- But God prepared a worm [the worm was also to teach Jonah a lesson, God gave the gourd for protection and rest and then God sent the worm to eat the gourd and take away the protection]
Jonah 4:8 that God prepared a vehement east wind [the key word is PREPARED, God prepared the wind.
The interesting thing about Jonah is that, here is a man that is on the run from Godís plan for his life and look at all the things God prepared, or appointed for him to bring him back to Godís will for his life. If God did it for Jonah, he is just as actively involved in our lives as believers, For God is no respecter of persons. He prepares and appoints things for us, just as he did for the saints of old.
Application: What has God appointed or prepared for your life? Ask him if you are unsure.
