Before I had gone to the Lyfe Women’s Conference several weeks ago, I had purchased some new sandals. About a week after I had returned home, I was looking for them and couldn’t find them after three or more searches in every place I could think of. I sent a message to see if any white sandals were turned into the lost and found at the college. Several days later I was pulling a pair of older black sandals from a drawer under my bed and that’s when all I could do was laugh. Underneath my old black sandals was my new pair of BLACK sandals! For whatever reason, I was thinking I had purchased white sandals, when in reality I had actually purchased black ones! They were here all the time!
Aren’t we often forgetful about things even in our Christian walk? We forget so easily. We may be looking for answers, but we are looking in all the wrong places and perhaps for the wrong thing. We may even cry out to others for help; but we forget the answers may be right in front of us all the time; in particular–in our own Bible and our cry needs to be to God alone. Nothing is hidden from Him and He will direct us to where we need to be, at the time we need to be there; or He will show us what we need to do.
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Ps.119:105
Don’t forget to look in the right place for your answers. They are as plain as black and white! And just keep trusting the One who does have all the right answers. He’s right here all the time!
