God's Eyes- If These Four Walls Could Talk?
Can you imagine being sent out into the wilderness
for forty years like Moses? If Moses would have
lived his life up until then differently would God
have spared him the discomfort? Was God trying to
prove some point to Moses by making an example of
him? What can we learn about this story?
When was the last time you drove down the road
with out the radio in your ears? When was the last
time you just listen to your kids, your spouse or
a friend and not said two words? When was the last
time you just stopped and listened to the coffee
pot making coffee early in the morning? Whether
by design, life or nature most of us during our
lives have built up barriers (walls) in our minds
and around our hearts. By doing so most will never
reach the full potential of what God has for their
lives. Inside each of us are minds of brilliance
and hearts of gold. Yet it's our walls that
prevent us of experiencing life seen through God's
Over time with life's up's and down's and
disappointments from others we harden like walls
of cement. Our walls have been constructed to
protect us from fear. Fear of failure, fear of
success, fear of expectations. Our rooms become
smaller and our thinking becomes stale. A good
example of this is children. The bible says,
"Child like faith." Children have no fear. They
walk right up to a strangers and have a
conversation, with out thinking they will take a
leap off a table to get to the couch.
As adults, why do we find it so hard to get back
to the simple things in life? Why is it so hard to
quiet our minds? Have we become so scared of
realizing who we have become that we fill our
heads up with meaningless things? Has the walls of
our hearts been built right before our blinded
eyes? I started a new company in May of this year
with a friend of mine. About a month ago we
happened to be talking in our lecture hall. I said
to her, "Somewhere within these four walls is a
million dollar idea. The question is, "Are we
willing to look for it, and are we willing to ask
God for help guiding us to it?" In other words,
"what if these walls could talk?"
What if today your walls could talk? What if your
barriers and fears didn't exist? How would your
life change? Would you forgive easier? Would you
have a different career? Would you worry less?
Would you have a better relationship with others
or even with Jesus? I guess God could ask us the
same question. "Somewhere within your four walls
of your life, mind, and heart is your relationship
with me. Are you willing to let your walls down,
ask for it and seek it with all you have? Are you
willing to just trust me that I will guide and
protect you?" Would Moses life been different if
his walls could talk? Maybe not. But maybe so!
Today we have a choice to allow our walls to talk.
Today we have the chance to make a different in
our own life and touch another. Will you take down
a wall and live a life God has always wanted for
you? Will you give yourself a chance to see life
through Gods eyes? All you have to do is look and
listen for him and be willing to ask for his
guidance. Let your heart and mind talk this week.
Let your true brilliance and your heart of gold
shine from behind those walls. Make a difference
in yours and some one else's life.
