We are not expected to follow the Father’s charted path to our happiness without a few wrong turns along the way. It is not only a thought that does not come from God, but it is impossible to do without him taking care of it while we do what we can to live right by him. Matter of fact as well as matter of Word, it would be like finding yourself somehow walking in the desert, where you see, and you hear where you are, but you have no idea where you are or which way you need to go. Now listen to what the Word says: 1 Corinthians 2:9, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” We don’t need a walk in the desert to understand what’s that’s like. We get that understanding as we just walk out his Will in our daily lives. The reason why some of us have made more wrong turns than others is because we are more creative, smarter, and more progressive to where we are willing to make more turns on our own into that which Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, of that which have not even entered into their hearts. I guess that they just love to play the game of seeing how far the blind can walk in a place that no one has even been in before, I don’t know. In all truth, that is not the way that you want to go about having the Father to take care of it for you. Plus, in the natural, a blind person who is out and about living life to the fullness of that which is possible, may not see where they are going, but as they go, they go knowing what to do next in order to get to the place that they hope for. No, the blind person in the natural is highly skilled, with trained senses that allow them to be at less risk in the natural than most of us are walking blind in the spiritual.
It would make a big difference in the lives of us who walk by faith, and not by sight, if we actually took a few pointers from those who know what it is to walk not by sight. Do you remember the commercial that said “don’t leave home without it?” I believe that the newer commercial may say “don’t live life without it.” One thing that I have noticed in the past as I have participated in functions with those that walk not by sight is that they don’t leave home without it either. Most of them, especially the very skilled, they do not just look blind when they are in the room. They can carry on with you all day as if nothing is missing from their lives; however, we are able to know them right off because of what they may have with them. They do not leave home without their cane, and/or their service animal if they have one. They take with them what they need to have in order to get along down the road, step by step, to the place in which they hoped to be. And what do these weapons of their warfare do for them? They help lead them on, and they also provide knowledge early enough before they need to make a decision to move forward. And the greatest thing outside of their courage to be out, and about amongst us rushing folk with sight, is that they still take the time out in the rush to get the knowledge first before they step. If we who are walking by faith in the spiritual, could understand how critical the knowledge of what’s about to happen just next is before we make that move, just like the blind in the natural all the time, and many times a day; we would not step off that curve at the light, and get hit by the cars as we do all the time spiritually, many times a day. Even when you have natural sight, but endeavor to walk by faith and not by sight spiritually, you still can’t leave home without having the tap tap alert of knowledge about your just next move coming up, before you move at all. So don’t make your next move without it, but wait for the substance of things hoped for to tap tap the knowledge that you can now take the green light, and then let it lead you to what’s just next that’s about to come up. And in the mean time, the Father is taking care of it as you go on.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
