it’s supposed to be windy today. really windy.
have you ever noticed how the windiest days are the days after it rains?
kinda like God pulling out the blow drier after giving the ground a good soaking.
he seems to do this in our individual lives as well, doesn’t he? you know, you go through a rough patch – a storm – a time when you wonder where God is or what he’s up to. and then…. the wind.
the word wind in ancient greek – the language of the new testament – is PNEUMA. but this is cool – pneuma is also the word for Spirit.
after the storms of life, the Spirit is always there, doing what the Spirit does best: comforting and reminding us that God is sovereign and in control.
“and i will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, who will never leave you. he is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. when the Father sends the Helper as my representative – that is, the Holy Spirit – he will teach you everything and remind you of everything i have told you.”
– john 14.16, 26
i don’t see the wind. yet.
but i know it’ll blow today.
