In this drought, I really enjoyed having a computer, with Internet, and being able to check the radar. I like checking to see it is going to rain. I will hear thunder and I will run real fast to the computer to see the radar, and sometimes I will say, “No, the radar isn’t showing anything.” And that settles it in my mind.
Well my husband told me one day, “The radar has nothing to do with what is up in the sky.” That confused me for a second, but I just let it go, like whatever. I wasn’t real sure he knew what he was talking about.
Then the other day, the same thing happened, and he said the same thing, “The radar has nothing to do with what is up in the sky.” So I stopped for a minute and I thought about it, the radar has nothing to do with what is up in the sky. Then it hit me, the radar reflects off of rain drops, it can tell you where it is raining and where that rain is going, but it has nothing to do with what is up in the sky. It can not tell you if it is about to rain, it can’t predict the future. The radar can’t see a cloud in the sky that is full of rain and about to burst; it doesn’t reflect the rain until it is released. So the next time you look around and feel like a spiritual storm is coming, realize that is just your radar reflecting off of the rain around you, the radar has nothing to do with what is up in the sky; that is the future. Only God knows your future. When you feel the devil surrounding you, look up and trust that God controls the sky, and your future. Psalms 123:1b says Hey yo God… up there in heaven, I could use a little help here.
He knows what we do not know. With all of that power, surely He knows about a few rain drops surrounding you.
I look to you, heaven-dwelling God, look up to you for help.
