“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8, ESV)
Knowing the details is not as important as we think.
We can have our hopes and dreams, but Jesus makes it very clear that a life of Spirit contains a lot of mystery. We don’t always know where He is truly leading…we’re not supposed to. Whether we like it or not, much of life is an unknown. We can choose a direction, but we will never know what the resultant details will ultimately look like.
This is the freedom of our faith. We know that God has us! He knows the path before us. We may choose a course, but the Lord knows how it will unfold. The twists and turns may even catch us off guard at times, but God is good. This is what we can truly depend on, not our dreams manifesting as we see them, but God’s goodness working while we walk our journey.
So, be encouraged. Choose your road in faith. Let God fill your imagination with all His goodness. Let it overflow into every decision, and watch the Holy Spirit do the rest.
