Each year do you feel like the holidays get crazier than intended? Do you feel like you’re being pulled in a million different directions so you don’t totally focus or attend to any one thing well? This road sign is a picture of what the holiday season can become if we aren’t careful.
It was never God’s intention for us to live chaotic lives. He is not a God of chaos. We serve a God of order. Whenever you have a hard time remembering that just look at creation. There is order and sequence to all that takes place from the changing of the seasons to the birth of a new creature. God has a plan and His plans are so much better than ours [Isaiah 55:8; Jeremiah 29:11]. When we slow down and take time with the Lord, we hear His voice in all of the noise and chaos and can discern the path we are to take [1 Kings 19:12]. The way of the world is winding and takes us on many detours and bypasses along the way. The way of the Lord is a straight path [Proverbs 3:5-6].
This holiday season when people and events are battling for your attention, pause and focus your attention on the Lord and wait for Him [Psalm 27:14]. He is seldom early, but He is never late and He is always worth the wait. He will not allow you to miss out on what He desires for you to experience this holiday season. Are you willing to follow the signs from the Lord this year? Your destination will be the feet of Jesus and His signs will deliver you there quickly.
