A few weeks ago I wrote a post about being a follower of God, and I used my dog as an example. This dog follows me everywhere. If I take a step, he takes a step - where I go, he goes. A couple days ago, as I was tripping over my dog for the hundredth time, God took the opportunity to teach me more about following Him.
God wants us to follow Him like my dog follows me. Where He goes, we go. Where He stays, we stay. We are to be completely devoted to Him. Not our will, but His. This is the kind of follower that God desires.
God doesn't find it amusing either.
The Bible says that His ways are not our ways, neither are His thoughts like our thoughts. God's character never changes, but the ways He chooses to move does change. Just about the time we think we have Him figured out, He does something completely different. God doesn't want us to try to anticipate His next move. No matter how hard we try, we can't figure Him out.
Are you a follower or does God trip over you as you rush ahead of Him?
