The Errors Of Presumed Pathway

grenepages_Femi Sobayo TREASURES-IN-JAR OF CLAY_The Errors Of Presumed PathwayGod does not stay where you wish he could stay, he stays where He wills. He does not say what you wish he would say, He says what He will say. He is God, you are his sheep, do not presume him, follow him. Always know that his thoughts could always be far from ours.
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9 KJV

I have always had issue with the cliché 'the voice of the people is the voice of God'. God's voice is God's voice, independent of whatever the voice of anything; people or spirits is. It does not matter whether people or nations speak something else or not. He is the sovereign God.
We all have moments when we think for God, moments when we expect him to behave in a certain way, more because we become emotional about such things. I have almost advised God to 'kill all politicians who loot and cause pains to the masses'. At a time, when an agbero (roadside tout) hit a conductor hard because the later will not pay the forced levy, I became so emotional that I wished thunder could just slap the tout instantly and avenge the poor conductor. If I had that free uncensored power, I could have done so. We may find it hard to balance revenge and forbearance. Thank God, we are not the Almighty God; I do not think there will be this world again.
Elijah once expected God to be in the wind, God was not there. Later, he opined that God should be in the fire or at least in the earthquake. God was not in any of those places. God was in an unexpected still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-13). By default, Elijah just felt or presumed the Almighty should be in a mighty wind or a fierce fire or something more dramatic.
Samuel, seeing Eliab, Jesse's first born quickly brought out the Oil (2 Sam 16:6). Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, "Surely, here before the LORD stands his chosen king!"
That is more like saying, ''Waooo, see a kingly figure, this must be God's mind". Alas! God had his spirit on another person, a most unlikely person. Thank God, men are not the almighty God.
There is no single physical indicator of spiritual bearings. We cannot assume the way of God. We cannot determine a spiritual path by studying a physical map. It does not matter how much it looks like it. If it is not it, it is not it. The undoing of men is that we run ahead of God assuming the path to trail. We must learn to follow God's leading indeed, if we must be successful.
"O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23 KJV
