God’s Refinery – Driving In The Wrong Direction
Thomas Huxley was a 19th century agnostic who promoted Darwinism and Humanism in his attacks on Christianity. He was in Dublin and was rushing to catch a train. He climbed aboard one of Dublin’s famous horse drawn taxis and said to the driver -“Hurry, I’m almost late … drive fast”. Of they went at a furious pace and Huxley sat back in his seat and closed his eyes. After a while Huxley opened his eyes and glanced out the window to notice that they were going in the wrong direction. Realizing that he hadn’t told the driver where to take him he called out ‘do you know where you’re going’. The driver replied “No your honor, but I am driving very fast’.
This is a true reality for many of us. Moving at a fast pace but in the wrong direction. Life is lived at a fast pace, full of activity and things … but direction-less … many people who have not yet discovered what life is all about or where they are going will keep running without direction. That is why it’s very essential to discover your purpose. There is a purpose why you are here, find it and fulfill it. When you do not know where you are heading, every road will lead there. Don’t put the journey of your life in the hands of a novice; they will end up driving you far away from your purpose. Be patient in your pursuit; avoid taking the short cut route as it will end up cutting you short of living a fulfilled life. A path has been created for you to walk in destiny, don’t jump on another man’s track. Run your own race. Stay on course, don’t be moved by the swiftness of others, remember the ‘race is not for the swift.’ It is God that shows mercy and gives grace. Run to Him and you will never be ruined. God bless you big.
