At one time, I was against coloring my hair. I knew it would be challenging to maintain. Then I started getting gray hairs, and all that went out the door! Now, I realize it was God instructing me. I’ve gone five years without any chemicals touching my head, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m not telling you to stop coloring your hair; these instructions were specific to me. Here’s the point; if God is concerned about something as minor as hair, how do you think he feels about more important matters? Here’s the answer:
“Ah, stubborn children,” declares the LORD, “who carry out a plan, but not mine, and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction, to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt! Isaiah 30:1-2
The words that seem to jump off the page, “without asking for my direction!” We should do nothing without consulting God! Even for minor things like hair. It may seem ridiculous, but God wants to be the one you talk to about everything; he will never lead you astray. Don’t go it alone! He is our supreme counsel; seek him about every decision.
