Does it Really Matter Where You are Going?

Yes, we are in a new season. Welcome Autumn! The trees are turning, the air is getting crisp, and it’s pumpkin and apple season! Yeah! Do you like fall? I love the coolness of the air, and the chilly nights where you curl up in a blanket or two. I love fuzzy socks too!

But what about Spiritually? Are you in a changing season too? I know I am. The details don’t matter. The past doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t even matter where we end up going – as long as I am with My Jesus. He promised to go before us and lead us.

” And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” – Deuteronomy 31:8

I know when God called Abraham out, He didn’t give him all the details either. But Abraham just trusted God and followed His lead.

 Now the Lord had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
 I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
 I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. – Genesis 12:1-4

That’s a great promise for all of us this new season. God will make us a blessing, He will bless those who bless us and He will curse those who curse us. What more could a girl ask for? You go God! I’m with You! Show us the way!

Besides, my plans didn’t work out so good anyway. I’m sure God has a better plan for each of us that is way bigger than we could have thought or imagined!

A Screwdriver and a Pen

God will give you what you need, when you need it.  I have a funny story to share with you.  My husband Bob and I have our own IT Business, InnovativeTeks.  For the last two years, since my leg broke, he has been the one driving all around doing all these jobs for different businesses while I have been in PT and recovery mode.  What a man of God.  He trusts God to provide work each and every day and is flexible enough to not lose it when things change.

So, yesterday was Monday – yeah a real Monday.  He had 3 jobs over towards Milwaukee – which is over an hour from our little country home.  We have a Toyota Camry for our work car, and he has a fold up ladder and his tools in the trunk – usually.  But remember, this was Monday.  The day before, because we play together at church, he had taken out his tools and the ladder and put them in our shed to fit the guitar and music bag, and of course the kids.  (No we didn’t put them in the trunk!)

Anyway, he gets to Milwaukee and sends me this picture:  His text says, “Oh boy, weeeee…”.  This is a $15,000 Server that has been down with 16 Hard Drives inside.  My response, “May God give you favor!”.  Then he goes to the trunk –  no tools. Great. God speaks to his heart, “Everything you need is already here.” 

 

So Bob digs in the trunk and finds a screwdriver and a pen.  And goes into this big business, who shall remain unnamed, with a screwdriver and a pen.  After talking to the Manager he finds out the device has been down for over a month.  It was new and it has never worked.  They have had multiple people there who make well over $100,000/year trying to fix it.  So Bob prays, “Lord, show me.”  The system did not see all the hard drives – even though they were already there.

Long story short, God gave him wisdom.  It was a script error.  There was nothing wrong with the motherboard or the computer. It had everything it needed, but the script did not “see” all the hard drives.  Bob did what he does with God’s wisdom, and changed the script.  And he fixed it – with a screwdriver and a pen!

It makes me wonder – We already have the Holy Spirit – the power of God inside of us.  

How many of us have hidden hard drives?

The script for our lives has been rewritten with the Blood of Jesus.  

Everything we already need is in us.  

Let’s stop running the old script – we are restored – by the Blood of Jesus – all it took was a screwdriver and a pen!
