As she pulled into the back, to have the feed store employees load her hay, she was caught off guard by the fact that they said they could not load the hay onto her trailer due to the type of loader they had. Instead all of the hay would have to be loaded onto her truck’s flat bed.
Catherine was frustrated, but arguing would not get her anywhere. So unto the back of the flat bed of her truck the numerous bales were loaded and stacked. As the guys in the yard tied down the load it was large, over the top and extending beyond the sides. Catherine hopped into the cab of her truck and proceeded back to her ranch. As she was on her way home, Catherine became alarmed when she heard the trailer rattle. She checked her mirrors, but alas she could not see it due to the mirrors being blocked by the load of hay. At first she was startled, where did the trailer go? Because she could not see it, she felt like it wasn’t there. She knew it was, but it just didn’t feel right, until a thought came to her, this is just like it is with God, just because I can not see Him, it doesn’t mean that He isn’t there. I need to drive in faith that the trailer is still there, just like I walk with the confidence that God is there for me.
John 1:18, “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”
What this is saying is that no one has seen God, but Jesus has made God known. Because of our relationship with Jesus we know that God is there, even though we cannot see him.
Is there anything blocking you from knowing that God is in your life? Is it you and your lifestyle? Do you allow the business of this world to block you from seeing the evidence of God in your life? Take a minute to evaluate the number of bales in your truck. Are you over loaded? Ask God to help you remove some of the needless burdens that you are hauling behind you. You know what they are, they are the things that are blocking your view and limit your vision. Remember to trust in God that he is there for you…even when your sight is limited.
Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
Prayer: Dear Lord, I want to always walk in faith. Help me to not allow the burdens or stuff pile up in my life and obstruct my view of you. Help me to unload the unnecessary bales from my truck bed and instead drive through this life with the confidence that you are there no matter what appears in the way. Thank you Lord for your constant care.
