In the absence of leadership, chaos often ensues. Subsequently, if you want to get from point A to point B, you need to wait for a guide who you can trust. While some grow impatient choosing someone without proven experience, the faithful wait it out despite the uncertainty. Time has a way of straightening out unanswered questions, revealing glimpses of God’s providence.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps, Proverbs 16:9.
Without God’s direction, anyone can wander far from the life the Lord designed for you. For reasons unknown, trials come and go unannounced, wearing on souls who are put through a series of tests. In some ways, these unpleasant experiences serve as a way to nudge individuals closer to God’s will. Yet, in trying to comprehend the whys, putting the pieces together to life’s mysteries, some lose faith.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose, Romans 8:28.
One of the roles Jesus plays is a conductor, leading his lost sheep in the right direction. Like a maestro, God has a way of taking average people and bringing them together to make amazing music. Unfortunately, when things don’t go your way, its hard to see God’s hand at work. Thus, its vital to keep in step with the Holy Spirit, Galatians 5:25, ready to jump on the train to heaven when the conductor arrives.
