Guarding dead space? Last night as I went to let the dogs in and turn off the lights on the back deck, I was met with a cascade of tiny white moths circling around the porch light. Did you every wonder why moths are attracted to light?
Think about it. Unfortunately moths fail to comprehend the concept of artificial lighting. Because they’ve mistaken a dead end street for a highway, they never get where they long to go. Fortunately for you and I, God has given us the ability to discern such things.
God’s Word tells us: “Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit." So ignore them. They are blind guides leading the blind, and if one blind person guides another, they will both fall into a ditch” (Matthew 15:14).
Are you guarding dreams that have long since vanished? Perhaps you're guarding dead space and nothing more. Dreams are great things but often God blesses us in ways we can't see. Don’t flutter around dreams that you haven’t entrusted first to God. Dreams that are not blessed are dreams that are empty and fleeting. They really aren’t there at all!
“Heavenly Father, search my heart, I pray, and root out any hypocrisy and legalism You will find there. May the words of my mouth reflect a heart that honors you in thought, word, deed and motive.Bless my dreams Oh Lord and keep me from fluttering in vacant space.This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
