Revelation Through Our Occupation!!!

In Febuary 2015 I will have earned my keep as a driver in the state of Michigan for “12” yrs. Here in Michigan we experience some of the worst winter weather in the world. Our weather here is very unpredictable. One minute it can be a pretty pleasant day, then the next minute it can be a major storm brewing.

In my almost “12” yrs as a driver I’ve driven through some of the most treacherous weather imaginable. Over the years I’ve learned how to make necessary adjustments in my driving to make it to my destination safely. I’ve also learned, or should I say, in the process of learning how to make these very same adjustments when driving through the storms of life, which can be just as treacherous.

The first adjustment would be to slow down so that my tires wont lose traction, and I end up ultimately losing control of the vehicle. The storms of life warrants that same first response. It is always harder to hear the voice of God when moving through life at a fast pace. We should be slow to speak in these seasons because our first natural response would be to speak on the power of the storm, instead of the power of our God.

We should also be slow to wrath, being conscious of the fact that the storm has the potential to ignite that anxiety that provokes wrath. See, in the midst of these storms it’s a natural response to allow the spirit of anxiousness to creep in, because we are in a hurry to get to that piont of destination, that place of comfort and safety.

This brings me to the next adjustment which is removing my eyes from the clock inside the vehicle so that I wont get destracted by the time, and fixing my eyes on the road in front of me. Not worrying about the extra time that it’s taking to reach my destination. I would much rather keep my wheels moving forward at a slower pace than to find myself sitting in a ditch. That would definately provoke anxiety and wrath.

Removing all distractions from our view, and fixing our eyes on, The Way, The Truth and The Life, also known as Jesus is vital in making it through the storms of life as well. Jesus Desciples were inside of a boat and saw Him walking on the water towards thier boat. The Apostle Peter asked Jesus to allow him to walk out to meet Him on the water. Well Jesus told Peter, COME, and Peter began to walk on water successfully as long as he kept his eyes fixed on Jesus, but began quickly sinking when he had taken his eyes off of Jesus and fixed them on the storm instead.(Matthew 14:24-31)

These are just a few of the revelations that God has given me through my occupation. I believe that God is speaking to His people all the time, giving insites and revelation through the occupations of His people. Jesus told the apostle Peter, before Peter became an apostle, that He would make Him a fisher of men. See Peter was a fisherman,therefore he understood that concept very well.

Jesus also used the analogy of seed planting many times troughout His ministry because thier were many farmers in that day who would fully understand this concept. I believe that our God is still giving insite and revelation through our occupations even on today. So I encourage you to listen closely for the voice of God which just may be trying to give you revelation through your occupation.

Blessings to you…

LOVE…GRACE…PEACE…

    • Thank you Brandon, I know all to well the effects of not slowing down. Im dealing with consequences even now of neglecting to slow down enough to actually hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Ive spent way too much time in the ditch. Thank you brother, and blessings to you and yours.
