Discerning the Signs of the Times

Ever walk into a situation and never see it until you are in it? And it was the elephant in the room. You wonder how you missed it all together. Most times people aren’t looking at where they are going. They are involved in what they are doing and don’t see beyond their nose. Unfortunately it can be devastating. Our life evolves into seasons. Each one is distinct and unique to us. And in those seasons it seems that we are on auto-pilot. As we are guided on a predetermined flight path. With certain expectations, life can move at a comfortable pace. God always will inform us about impending events that will affect us and the world around us. All we have to do is discern them. Ever looked up in the morning and see a beautiful sunrise? And you marvel at how beautiful it is. You have just discerned something. It is being aware of your surroundings as it affects you. It is also about see what is coming in the future. Knowing that down the road a situation is coming your way and you need to prepare. Somethings you can change and some you can’t. The one you can’t needs to be address for your own safety and that of your families. After 9/11, 3 of my 4 sons joined the military when they became old enough. They wanted to do their part in protecting our country. Their awareness of the need of our country became acute. All the signs that we need for our future are there for us. God gives us the opportunity to adjust our thinking and ways so that we can survive the encounter. What can you discern about the future? The signs are there if you are willing to look. Today look at the sky in the morning, if it is red, there is a storm coming. If the sky is red in the evening, you know that the storm has passed. Now discern the signs of the times.
