I was thinking about how little children idolize their older brothers and sisters. They are always tagging along and want to do something with you. They are always telling you how much they like you. After a while it generally drives you nuts!!! It suddenly occurred to me that we, as a collective group, are treating God exactly the same way. We idolize him by building great buildings in his honour. We tell him how great he is. We sometimes whine about not getting something and when that fails we lay guilt on him by saying "He has abandoned us". I don’t know about you, but if I was a God I’d be sick and tired of the lot of us by now. I have suspected for a long time that God is getting set to change things and here are a few comments about the train coming down the track. God will direct us. All we have to do is listen and talk to him on a regular basis. Sometimes he won't answer right away and sometimes he will set up a series of seemingly innocuous events to lead you in a certain direction. He will also sweat the details to make things happen like, huh, reaching into your heart where to all intends and purposes you should always remain as mad as hell about something. Don't get antsy if he doesn't reply to you right away. Don't forget God has been around for a hell of a long time and his time scale / future events schedule tends to be longer than what you and I might consider reasonable. If you want to do something don't hesitate to ask him as he might decide it’s a good idea and set it in motion long after you forgot about it and moved on to something else. He also happens to have a habit of not telling you what happened if he needs you to do something in a chain of events that doesn't necessarily involve you directly. He also works on a need to know basis and in most cases "You don't need to know". He also doesn’t need a lot of Generals but there is a need for Privates. So, "Welcome, to God's army!!"
