Most dogs love to have a stick thrown to find and bring back to their owner only to be thrown again, and again. Sometimes the dog will set off just as the owner is in the act of throwing, heading feverishly in the direction he thinks it will go, never pausing to even look. That stick, may in fact, land somewhere quite different and on those occasions it’s completely lost to the dog. He’ill never find it looking in the wrong place!
My friend how often are we so busy doing what we think to be ‘God’s Work’ that we never noticed He didn’t want us to go in that direction? We just set off in the way we assumed to be automatically right. So we’re hunting furiously and fruitlessly for a blessing God cannot give to that kind of activity, for He wanted us elsewhere!!!
