At times in life we expect and even anticipate certain turns in the direction God is taking us. There are also times when we are faced with turns and sometimes forced to make. Stubbornly plodding along will only end in disaster.
Life has a funny way of moving us toward the reality of Proverbs 16:9 NLT – “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Many discover this reality only after “the crash”.
Following the steps the Lord has determined are difficult. Sudden turns dictate that the things that were comfortable while cruising along get tossed around a bit. Road signs are placed well in advance of the actual turn. The key is to keep your eyes open to see the signs and determine exactly how you should respond.
Has God turned you lately? If not, keep your eyes open for that sudden turn.
