“The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound thereof, but can not tell from where it came, and where it goes: so is everyone that is born of the Spirit.” John 3:8
Continuing on from where we left off, I was sharing that I believe we have had many “eth’s” (divinely arranged timings) that we simply didn’t recognize or we did see them but either didn’t know what to do or felt it would appear silly or unwise to follow that.
Don’t think it didn’t seem a little strange when I told folks we were going to Panama and they would ask “Where in Panama” and I had no idea. Then they would ask, “Why” and I really didn’t have a solid answer… just something to do with the financial realm and impacting the world. I know you have missed a lot of “eths” and so have I. They have been laden with incredible opportunity and favor and we simply missed them because we didn’t recognize the “eth” of God. It seemed too strange to us so we let it float by.
HOWEVER… I do have some good news here. We were on the beach recently. There was a strong breeze blowing and a family had one of those giant bubble makers. You dip this thing in a special bubble solution and hold it up to the air. The wind would blow through the instrument producing bubbles about eight inches across. Lots of bubbles. Those bubbles were just floating by people one after the other. It seemed that few people even noticed them, but I guess I’m a kid at heart so I was fascinated the whole time.
But here’s the deal… The “eths” of God are like those bubbles. There are no two alike and when they are gone, they are gone, but the good news is that God has lots of bubbles for us. So if you missed a bubble, fear not, God has another bubble for you. He’s not short of bubble making solution or of wind to blow the bubbles. Don’t live in regret for missing the diving bubbles God sent your way. They are gone. Be like the child on the beach who upon missing the first few bubbles because she didn’t know what they were or what to do, eventually caught on and spent the rest of her time, trying to catch the bubbles.
God doesn’t want you to waste time or allow corrosion on your soul by soaking in the regrets of missed opportunities. There are plenty more bubbles where they came from. Get up from your slumber. Leave your regrets behind and go catch some diving bubbles (“eth”) today.
