On the way home from work yesterday, I was deep in thought about several things that had taken place in my life during the month of October. Some of these circumstances qualified as “crazy” and caused me to question if I had truly heard from the Lord regarding decisions that I had made. I even found myself uttering the words, “God, did I really hear from you or was that just me?”
I called my mother just to hear her voice and began to talk to her about my day. As I was driving in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I looked through my rear view mirror and noticed a young lady driving behind me. Each time that we stopped in traffic, I became less confident regarding her driving skills. I also looked at her face and something appeared to be off. The Holy Spirit immediately urged me to change lanes and I obeyed. I told my mother about it and she thought I should hang up with her and concentrate on driving. I told that I had already changed lanes even though the lane that I was previously in was the only one moving. The lane that I shifted into was at a complete stop. Seconds after I shifted, the same young lady ran into the back of the car in front of her. I thought wow….that could’ve been me.
Lesson learned: The Holy Spirit is always on point. Even if it feels as if the shift you recently made, shifted you to a place of waiting. Many of us have prayed for a shift or a place of release, only to find that the place where we shifted to appears to be moving nowhere soon. Yet, I challenge you to hold onto the fact that there is a purpose and plan in every move of God. There is an appointed time and place for everything that God does – including the process of waiting. Do not doubt God because He is always on the move and sometimes that simply requires you to be still. Do not allow your environment to dictate the outcome of your shift. God is the greatest planner for your life. If He has to move you to a place of standing still to protect you until your next shift, then confess even right now….”Jesus take the wheel!”
