Day 63

Day 63 Reading – Numbers Chapters 21-22

Then the LORD opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with his sword drawn.  So he bowed low and fell facedown.  Numbers 22:31 NIV

Allow me to preface this comment by saying I am not a fatalist.

In other words, I do not believe there is no point in trying or praying because what is will be and what comes is already determined.

That being said, how many times in our lives have we been frustrated by events that happened? How many times have our paths been blocked in going where we wanted to go? How many times did we not get what we wanted?

Then I read this passage and wonder how many times did these things happen as a result of Divine intervention?

I wish God would open our eyes more often.

I wish we had more than rear view images of Divine Intervention.

But what if our inability to see what God is doing is not because God hasn’t opened our eyes, but instead because we refuse to looked?

Take time today to look again at the things in your path and open your eyes to the possibility of the Divine being right there in front of you.

Until Tomorrow …

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
