Our friend is an auctioneer, and he is auctioning off the contents of a wedding venue that will become a housing development. Yesterday, we went to the preview because they have a lot of nice things that we might be interested in purchasing. Before the property became a wedding venue, it was a horse farm, and it was gorgeous. The beautiful trees, barns, and facilities are unmatched by any other event centers I’ve visited. It seems a shame to tear it all up for houses, but that’s progress, and everyone wants to live in Florida. I can’t blame them; I love it too.
God will move forward without you if you don’t learn to adhere to his word and keep progressing. Learn to bend and move with him so you don’t break.
Think about it like a water hose; you can easily move it around trees and shrubs, but sometimes it gets a kink and shuts off the water supply. We then have to follow the hose back to see where the problem is. Once we find and un-kink it, the water begins to flow again. It’s the same way with progressing with God; sometimes, sin kinks our hose, and we must adjust and ask forgiveness so we don’t get cut off from God’s valuable resources.
You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion is not from him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. I have confidence in the Lord that you will take no other view, and the one who is troubling you will bear the penalty, whoever he is. Galatians 5:7-10
