MAKING HEADS OR TAILS OF IT

MAKING HEADS OR TAILS OF IT

Remember playing pin the tail on the donkey as a kid? As soon as that blindfold went on and they started to spin you around, your other senses would go into overdrive to try and compensate. Could you sniff your way to victory?

The world teaches us to rely on the stuff we can see and sense to be able to find our way, so when one or more of those abilities fails or is damaged, we end up pinning tails nowhere close to target.

But what if someone you trusted guided you all the way? What if you had a friend who whispered ‘Left a bit…straight ahead…up an inch!’ in your ear? Yes, it’d probably get you disqualified, but you’d also land right where you’re supposed to.

Knowing and trusting God’s Word is a bit like that (except it’s not cheating – happy days).

There will be lots of times in life that you’ll need to pin a tail blind’ when you won’t be able to see clearly ahead, but you’ll still need to make wise choices. Taking the time to know what the Bible says about the things you might face is vital – it means that when all your senses fail, you’re still right on course.

What now?

Read Proverbs 3:5-6 and Jeremiah 17: 5-9 to see why it’s so important to rely on God’s Word rather than your own perception. Real talk!

“You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures.” Matthew 22:29
