Like The Wind
John 3:8 (NKJV) – The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
The Spirit of God is alive and active in our daily lives; some days more obvious than others. People who follow after God’s will for their life must live by the Spirit.
We must let God control us in the same way he controls the wind. We don’t know which way the wind will blow next. If the Holy Spirit tells you to go somewhere and you had different plans, you should obey the Holy Spirit.
God wants Christians to be obedient to His Spirit today. Obedience is not just obeying the Ten Commandments. We must listen and obey daily, AS THE WIND.
Exodus 10:19 (NKJV) – And the Lord turned a very strong west wind, which took the locusts away and blew them into the Red Sea. There remained not one locust in all the territory of Egypt.
What if the very strong west wind refused to blow?

He brings the wind out of His treasuries.
Genesis 8:1b (NLT) – He sent a wind to blow across the earth, and the floodwaters began to recede.

Exodus 14:21b (NOG) – All that night Yahweh pushed back the sea with a strong east wind and turned the sea into dry ground.
John 3:8b (NOG) – That’s the way it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
