"What on earth are you going to do with me now?" That's a question I know I have asked God. Have you?
When we follow Christ, we are embarking on an amazing adventure. We know our final destination but the route by which we get there, well, that's another story.
The thing we must never lose sight of is that God knows exactly where He is leading us. He never gets lost. That dip in the road, curve or even hairpin turn on a treacherous precipice does not take Him by surprise. God will never say, "Oops! What do I do now?" or "Sorry, I made a wrong turn and now I am lost." Never.
Isaiah 45:9-12 (NLT) says:
"What sorrow awaits those who argue with their Creator. Does a clay pot argue with its maker? Does the clay dispute with the one who shapes it, saying, 'Stop, you re doing it wrong!' Does the pot exclaim, 'How clumsy can you be?'
How terrible it would be if a newborn baby said to its father, 'Why was I born?' or if it said to its mother, 'Why did you make me this way?'"
This is what the Lord says--the Holy One of Israel and your Creator: "Do you question what I do for my children? Do you give me orders about the work of my hands?
I am the one who made the earth and created people to live on it. With my hands I stretched out the heavens. All the stars are at my command.
I know I have been guilty at times of questioning how God does things and offering to tell Him how I think things should be done. Have you? What arrogance we have! He's God and we are... well... we are but dust. We're the creature but we often act like we're the Creator and this is not right.
May we remember who we are and who God is. May we learn to follow Christ wherever He leads us.
