The Wind is Blowing

What wind is blowing?

It may be a wind of prosperity; things are looking well, at the moment.

“The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places…”
(Psalm 16:6)

Enjoy it; thank God for it; put the crown on His dear head while it lasts.

But remember – “In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.”
(Ecclesiastes 7:14)

And when that day of adversity comes, don’t forget what the day of prosperity brought. Remember, it is the same God who sent the adversity that sent the prosperity, and He has not changed one iota in His faithfulness toward His dear people.

“Though He slay me,” says Job, “yet will I trust in Him.” (Job 13:15)

“He causeth His wind to blow.” (Psalm 147:18) It is His wind; His omnipotent, sovereign hand and arm that is stretched out in the lives of His dear people.
