Rambling would be my Olympic Sport. So I set myself the challenge of creating videos, 2 minutes or less (ok, anything less than 3 minutes!) when inspired by ordinary, and what it can teach us all about the importance and relevance of our faith in Jesus Christ.
Andy B shared a post earlier today about working and walking in God’ strength, titled Busy days and God’s rhythm That post started with these words… “Busy day ahead? Make sure you stop before you start, so you’ll be able to finish!” …before Andy went to look at how we can expound those words to make for more God like appear!
Today, Andy B drove jo – his wife – to work. Something he doesn’t normally do! But it really meant he could take a load off Jo – as a former trucker, 90 minutes of driving twice in a day is not even close to taxing, but for some it might be.
Andy B found a great bible reading plan on YouVersion, that led him to 1 Samuel 16, and the account of David killing Goliath. As amazing as that piece of scripture is, at 58 verses in length, David’s actions with those stones, only takes up 1 little verse. As amazing as that, Andy B saw an ever greater act of heroism.
Samuel is an prophet, with an amazing prophet to speak for God to people. With that comes the other side of a great relationship with God – actually having to speak what God is telling Samuel to say. Enter Jesse and his sons! Samuel is to choose the next king. But, having checked in with God, none of those sons are acceptable to God to become King. Was Samuel wrong? Or is there a bigger picture to this? Andy B imagined Samuel with a drop of sweat as the last son passed, and the answer came from God that, no, this wasn’t the right person to become King…
The book of James helps Andy B get real about some struggles he’s been having with being double minded. It’s never easy admitting you’ve been getting something wrong. But there is a beauty of the conviction that comes from getting honest with God, and allowing the Holy Spirit to minister to us as God’s hand crafted people.
